    Default Replacement pickups for Vorson electric uke to mando conversion?

    Hello! This summer I picked up one of the Tele body shape Vorson electric ukuleles, and strung it up as a mandola. Out of the gate the pickups were terrible, and the 1st string sounded unamplified. I posted about it, but then realized I could adjust the pickup height, and was able to get some sound from the 1st. However, it's still easily half that of the other strings. (And, in fact, the 4th string is pretty weak, too.)

    I think the outer poles on the pickups just don't line up with the strings or are just plain crummy. Anyone find a drop-in replacement for these little 4 pole pickups? I love the neck feel and the body shape, but the pickups make me not want to play this instrument at all.

    (And no, I don't want to wind my own. )

    Have you checked if the Almuse pickups match size wise. They are a common replacement as well as used by many builders. Specifically designed to avoid the weak string problems.
