I have a Westone Prestige 250 that I bought in 1982 and I foolishly switched out the lead humbucker for a SD-6 Super Distortion. And, of course, being a stupid teenager, I didn't keep the original pickup.

Anyone know where I can score an MMK75?

There are a couple of eBay listings for MMK 61s, which maybe, might be PAF style similar to 75s, I'm not sure. You might want to check the polepiece spacing too.

Hi again Harry, I didn't think to recommend checking in with this Forum so I'm glad you did.

I also should have mentioned this Westone post on magnet types which might give you a little more info:

Good luck with the search!

A quick and dirty guide to MMK use is that 45s were used on most guitars… 53s were the upmarket stuff like Vantage VA900… 61s seemed to be fitted to the semi hollows and hollows, and 75s in the likes of the very late Pantera X350/390 and Prestige models.
