There are certain things that make a great sounding old pickup,
wire, magnets and some unqualified essence. This model really
sounds and feels like a '50's pickup. The Resistance is 7.85K
These are made with ALNICO 3 or ALNICO 5 magnets. The neck
position with an ALNICO 3 magnet is able to get that low heat
distortion and keep note clarity at the same time. It has
that classic Clapton neck position sound. The bridge position
with the ALNICO 5 has that classic top end articulation and
lows that have a "Cello" quality.The perfect set
seems to be the 7.9 In the neck with an Alnico 3 magnet and
the 8.1 in the bridge position with an Alnico 5.
Alnico 3 or Alnico 5 with nickel covers new or aged.
7~8.3K(other ohm outputs are available as a custom order)
pickup is a replica of the late type of PAF's. This model
is simular to the '59 model but voiced with a little more
top end , and a tighter bottom.
I like this pickup in a guitar that is warm sounding and
needs a little more top end.
The pickup is available with a ALNICO 3 or 5 magnets. i like
the ALNICO 3 in the neck and the ALNICO 5 for the bridge.
7.6~8.3k with nickel covers new or aged
pickup is modeled after an early PAF (no decal) humbucker
that we had in the shop. This model is very warm and smooth
sounding, while keeping an articulate and defined edge. By
using the Custom made formvar wire this pickup has enhanced
mids and upper lows. It is wonderful in adding warm organic
tones to a guitar that is a little too bright.
Available with either a ALNICO 3 or a ALNICO 5 magnet. I like
the ALNICO 3 in the neck position and the ALNICO 5 in the
bridge position. The magnets are the correct size for old
Humbuckers. This pickup is ideal for use in a single,single,humbucker
setup. The character of this humbucker with the formvar wire
Matches the Flavor of my "60's Strat Replacement pickups
7.5~8.5K with nickel covers either new or aged.
p-90's are hand wound to vintage specs (or more!).
The pickup's have that great sustain ,chuncky bottom and that
ghostly top end. These P-90's sound incredible with class
A amps. I use these in my Model 1 and 2 guitars and they are
wound to 10k . The pickups are available with either Formvar
or Enamel wire, the Formvar wire gives a thicker sound and
the enamel is more focused and more clearly defined in the
Choice of Black or Cream colored covers.
