Is this dependent on magnet type or style ? And better yet, is there a way to do it yourself ? I have an old Dimarzio Breed I disected just for fun (Would never destroy a duncan PU, heh heh), and when I put it back together, output was much lower. Contacted Dimarzio and they said when this particular pickup is disassembled, it has to be remagnetized when put back together, otherwise output is significantly reduced. I was wrongly under the impression that the magnets contained therein would have retained their magnetic properties even when separated. Any comments, suggetions, or links for additional reading would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
