I have a Fender Cabronita Tele Thinline and love it, but would like to change out the ceramic pickup magnets from ceramic to alnico.

Has anyone taken these pickups apart to see if they use a standard humbucker size magnet? This could be a very easy upgrade.

While I am at it I want to wax pot these pickups. They feedback way too easily.

Anyone?

I doubt very strongly that they would have any kind of unique specs, seeing that they are generic imports. Pop one of the covers and see what's what.

As always, this is merely IMO where YMMV.
