N5 Pickup change...Help
« on: September 01, 2011, 11:55:36 PM »
Hi there, I am the proud owner of a Washburn N5 and a Washburn N4 solid Wenge (only one in the world).
I am going to change the single coil in the bridge to a humbucker, DiMarzio D Activator.

The issue i Have is if the poickup will fit the electronics...I am not a gear head and dont know much about this but the specs for the pickup say this....

Like all passive pickups, D Activatorâ„¢ pickups require controls with a minimum value of 250Kohms. 500K is the standard all around value, and our 1Megohm tone control is best for long cable runs.

I bought the N5 from Gearhounds in the US and i didn't recieve any tech info on the guitar....
Can somone tell me if this pickup will work in the N5?

Thanks alot
