So....today is the day!
Before I took the Avenger apart I sampled the frequency response of the stock pickups using the Signal Scope Application available for i-phone.
I will compare the frequency response of the stock pick ups to the performance of the new pick ups when replaced, and the project is complete.
I saved all of the original parts for reuse if needed.
It was easy to take it apart, I am sure it will be more difficult
