Just checked my order. They sent me the wrong ones as I was sure I'd ordered EMG40 housings and they sent me the 35 housings.



Their customer service isn't great is it :/

Not sure I want to order from them aain, any other places do these I could try?

Right. Attempt 2 atr ordering off guitar jones. THis time i've ordered 2xEMG35 and 2xEMG40 housings as they basically sent me 35 housings last time.

Means I'll probably end up with a spare set of 35 housings for anyone that wants a set.

Hopefully they won't .... up this time either.

Upon checkout at Guitar Jones my webpage is telling me that "There is a problem with this website's security certificate" So what should I do? I found another site that has these:

So, have got my order on the way so should be here in a week or two.

IF they've not ....ed up, then I'll have a spare set of EMG707 sized housings that you should be able to fit normal 7string sized passives into (I think), so does anyone want them?

I am thinking of ordering these and cutting off the top instead of the bottom to adjust for fit. That will actually also allow for the pickup to be adjusted to proper height with out a problem. Then you still get the cover to fill in the gaps in the rout but get the correct height for the pickup.

Here's one for you guys:

Housings do NOT fit DActivator8's , the pickups are too chunky, and the covers a little bit too small, so when you try to put them in the covers, the plastic bows out and the pickup/cover assembly doesn't fit the route for the EMG808's

Pretty annoyed about this as I spent ages waiting for these and had to make 2 attempts at ordering.

Anyway, seems like BKP 8's firt in them, so if anyone wants covers for BKP 8 string pickups for EMG routes, well, give me a shout as I have 2 covers I can't use

yeah, it was a pretty tight fit with my coldsweats.

i ended up unwinding the tape that protects the winding so that there was only one turn left to make them fit.

would this perhaps help with the dactivators? if the bobbin toppers are too wide, you could also probably sand them down a tiny bit

Sorry for the necrobump... But does anyone know of any other places to get these? I tried to purchase a set of these from the site in the OP. Things went as planned at first. I ordered them and paid with no problems.

Two days later, I get an email from them saying that I'm getting a refund with no explanation. I emailed twice asking why I was receiving a refund but I got no answer.

I returned to the site to see if I could just buy them again, and when I get to the point where I should be allowed to choose a payment method, the site throws an error "Error: No payment methods enabled."
