Thread: Can the new HB-1's fit a Bluesbird?

    Can the new HB-1's fit a Bluesbird?

    Was thinking of getting another Bluesbird and putting in the HB-1 repro pickups. Would they fit?

    Lots of different Bluesbirds out there. Need more specifics, but generally yes.

    In the couple that I've tried it in from Westerly and Corona, they fit but I did have to slightly alter the routes at the corners. On this one I also had to alter the neck ring because it didn't fit between the pickup and the neck.

    This would be a Newark. I may also just get an S-100 Polara.
