    let it lie

    Hi Reject,

    I think its not practical to ship it to UAE, it will cost you about 40 USD including shipping. Put in another 15 - 20 USD and buy a new SSL3, SSL4 or a dimarzio in the UAE.

    I'm willingto settle for Rs. 800 or the nearest offer. Any takers?

    Now you are talking.. but even then 800 is a bit too much for a second hand Squire Fender pickup.

    I would normally agree with you, but for two things -

    1. Good pickups get better with age. Something to do with carbon decay or stuff, but older pickups are supposed to sound better. This one's 4 years old.

    2. Any other squier pickup I would agree. But you have to look at this pick up. My mate in London who helped me buy this guitar had the same pickups in his mex strat, and he asked me to go for this guitar and not a mex strat, saying they are the same. You are welcome to take a look and verify, you can tell just by looking at the pickup, its not the normal squier ones.

    So I think 800 is quite a nice price, I'm open to nearest offer too.

    He says that
    Its got nothign to do with carbon decay.
    Just that bad magnets loose their magnetic strength over time.

    I wont call those as good pickups in any case.

    I wonder why, considering my pickup IS Alnico, and thus likely to lose 0.5% in 100 years. Don't you think you should look at the pickup before you decide whether its good or bad? I assume you would have seen some squiers, but I can assure you, you won't see these pickups in India. Not for nothing did I pay 200 pounds for this guitar. the same guitar is also hanging in the London Hard Rock cafe, played by I forget who (but since its there, the user must be quite good, right?)

    Pickup aging happens over aperiod of years... for it to be said that the magnets have aged.. 4 years does no qualify to say it is aged.. A pickup that is atleast 20+ could qualify.. all that said I do agree your pickup is good. 800 is good starting bargain you are asking for but the 1000 was a bit steep.
    Can you measure the DC resistanc and let me know?

    Ah you took me wrong.

    I have nothign against your pikcups.

    That statement was meant for pikcups that age fast in a short duration. :) That shows the magnet's instability.

    @ Jocelyn - Oh Maan you still want to bargain? Let me get my hands on a multimeter and I will check the DC resistance. Do you know over what voltage it should be measured?

    @ Alpha - Yeah, I thought you were referring to my pickup.
