I'm doing a ceramic to A5 magnet swap in a brand new Dimarzio and they are literally using something like super glue to hold the magnet to the base! I'm in the process of breaking off pieces of the original magnet and will probably have to use a dremel tool to remove the old magnet...This is not a fun thing and I'm warning anyone that wants to try this! I'm pretty good at this sought of thing,but at the same time,I risk screwing up a brand new pickup!
Since I can not get the magnet off the baseplate,I'll now have to replace the baseplate with another one and the new magnet! It's plain to see that Dimarzio wants us to leave their pickups alone!
