Repair: Gretsch (De Armond) Dynasonic Pickup

This is the condition I received this pickup in. The pickup is dead, and the top of the bobbin is broken. This is a very complicated pickup and quite interesting pickup to examine from the bottom it looks like pistons.

The Repair

After dismantling the pickup and removing the wire, I noticed that the whole bobbin is a single piece of molded Bakelite. Luckily the broken top did not effect the vertical part of the bobbin allowing me to cut the top off. I then fashioned a new top and glued it to the bobbin and drilled the holes.
