Paulo just dropped a cool aftermarket pickup into a Sterling. Maybe he can chime in.

I don’t think there’s any real “upside down” other than any logo that might be on the cover, so you should be good to go

Yeah I did replaced the pickup on my Sterling with a Herrick pickup 8 quad coil and also removed the preamp, now it's all passive with 2 vol and 2 tone knobs (vol/tone for each coil) and a 3 way for top coil, both or bottom only.
My pickup is upside down as you see where the logo is but it made no difference.

Thanks Matt and Bob!
Not bad for a $6 Olive Drab spray can from Army Barracks right? :)
Bass and beer sounds like a great combo right Tim?!
Pike GL w/ the pickup swap!
