I bought a New Tele neck pickup with black cover off ebay. I needed a Black Pickup, and didnt want to risk trying to put on on mysel;f, having just botched the job on one, ruining a good pickup.
When the Tele neck pickup arrived, I noticed that the neckplate was not grounded like my other Tele pickup was.
Being concerned, I asked the seller , and he said that he had been selling these for 12 years, and never had a problem, and that it was "part of the design".
Does that sound right. The seller told me to just go ahead and hook it up and I'd be happy, but I am reluctant to do so, as this may well void any ebay Protetction polocies in force here.
What do you think ? Heres the pickup in question. It does appear to be heavily potted.;
