Ok, bunch of questions here...sorry.

I have an old M22SD humbucker that came unglued a number of years ago. I replaced it with a C22B, but it's just not the same guitar anymore. Sad

1 - Does anyone know what type of glue or epoxy is used to assemble Carvin pickups? Any tips on how I can fix mine?

2 - Anyone have an M22SD they would like to sell?

3 - Is there a difference sound-wise between older and newer M22 pickups? Mine was a '93 and I loved it!

If you call Carvin and ask for Albert, He can probably help you.

Yeah. The older M22s are great. They're not the "just for metal" monsters that some folks think they are.

Well, Carvin's reply was that they would get back to me. Never happened.

I used super glue and it's been holding up for a few months. Sounds great.

Would still like to know what would be a better adhesive in case this happens again.

I know it's over a year after the last post but I have used "Shoe Goo" which is a flexible silicone based adhesive, but I can confirm that, once cured, Shoe Goo will hold on very well; just be sure to clean whatever it's holding.

I also ordered a new set of M22s from the factory, and they came out of the box smelling quite similar, so I wouldn't be surprised if it's just regular contact adhesive.

Thanks for the reply!! I searched all over for this answer for years! IF the pickup becomes un-glued again I will give this a shot and revive this thread once again. Smile

Side note, I'm done with m22sd pickup these days. C22 is serving me fine.

No problem! Should you ever put any M22 up for sale, I would be interested. Love those pickups.
