My Guild S300-D pickups are on the way back to me from Fralin’s. They potted them and added some tape (the wire was starting to show). However, I was told by the guy at Fralin that DiMarzio (the maker of the pups in this guitar) don’t pot their pickups. Gibson neither. I still went on with the waxing, not thinking about how I’m altering the original functionality of the pickups. On the other hand, the pickups were very microphonice to the point it was impossible to play the guitar with a loud amp. But hey, that’s a thing to keep in mind when potting pickups. I never realized not everyone dips their pickups in wax.
