Swapped the bridge pup for a Dimebucker so I can use the HH2 on my 90s band gigs, we do AIC, STP, RATM and other acronyms, ha

That would be a helluva juxtaposition to see those bands on an HH2 :rockon:

How'd you go about getting no pickup rings?

You can order it (from Sales) with direct PU mounting. I forget the #. (Here it is: "PDM", a $50 upgrade.)

I briefly had a chambered HH2 with direct mount PUs but felt that it had more of a solid body sound. Not sure if that was because of the direct mount or the smaller body size than the Fatboy. Anyway, returned it for the Fatboy.

Past tense
- '02 Fatboy; '04 CT6M; '07 Fatboy; '11 Bolt+
