Our goal for the Combustion was to have a B-string that exceeded anything it it's price range while providing a sweet, warm, vintage-like tone. In that regard I think we were successful.

Our original intent was that anyone wanting the more high-powered, hi-fi qualities of FD-3 pickups could retrofit ABZ pickups simply and easily. A few customers have done this mod and have been very happy with the results.

We've been looking for a more cost effective solution for Combustion owners that would like a little more output and clarity on the B but want to maintain the sweetness of the Combustion pickups.

We now have a B-string magnet booster kit available. The modification is simple (although there is some minor risk involved - follow the directions carefully), inexpensive $10 plus P&H and very effective.

email me for details.

Is this B-string booster specifically only for the B-string? I was playing my Combustion yesterday and did not notice any unevenness in volume balance between any of the strings.

Hey Sheldon,

PayPal sent. I did notice my B string was a little lower output than the other strings. But that may have something to do with the fact that I was so familiar with my Fender RB5. I has a fairly strong B string and I was used to easing up on it compared to the other strings.

BTW, is this kit only applicable to the B string? Could it be used on the G string? It seems to me the G string is a bit lower volume as well.

Backing off on the B-string adds to the problem a little.

Right now we only offer the kit for the B-string. Once installed the bass end of the pickup will need to be lower than the treble side. This should result in a more balanced output from the G as well.

PS: I'm in China this week so will mail out the kits next week.
