This super killer, previously refinished '51 Gibson SJ is back in the shop for a pickup swap. The old Fishman was giving the player trouble so he supplied a JJB Electronics pickup for me to install for him. These pickups are pretty much identical to the K&K Pure Mini's. Check the video below for the install.

An extremely responsive 1951 Gibson SJ that was refinished a long time ago. This mahogany back and side slope shoulder has been in the shop a couple times before and it's always a pleasure to play when it stops in. This time it was in for a minor tweak. The player was having troubles on a recent recording session where the high e was not ringing out clearly. I ended up shimming up the saddle about 1/32nd and removed the string bite in the top of the saddle. The high e string had worn a groove into the saddle which (along with the low action) was choking it out.
