Hi folks
I have solved my 8 string tenor problem by buying a great second hand Ashbury off eBay and it rocks. The only thing is it comes with a John Pearse bug pickup attached, which is supposed to still work but is missing the cable. Does anyone know if it's possible to get a replacement for these?
Thanks.

From the looks of it, any standard 1/4" instrument cable should work.

Thanks, Phil. I've ordered one.

It looks like a 1/8" or 3/32" mono phone plug to a 1/4" mono phone plug cable, notgeorgeformby. You'll need an adaptor to use the cable Phil recommended. Ric

If it's a 1/8" phone jack on the pickup, this cable will work:

This adaptor should make Phil's recommended cable work if it's a 1/8" jack on the pickup:

Thanks, Ric. A reviewer on Amazon mentioned the jack was 2.5mm (unlike the standard 3.5mm), is that the same as 1/8"? That's the size I've ordered anyway.

2.5mm is 3/32". You'll need a different adaptor for that. Ric

Newer models seem to use 1/4" to 1/8" If in doubt check here: http://www.jpstrings.com/index.htm
