The solderless connector setup includes a circuit board loaded with all the favourite USA grade electronics (Switchcraft jack, Switchcraft switch, CTS potentiometers, Orange drop capacitor). This circuit board simply drops into your Gibson style control layout, then you plug in the connectors we've added to the end of the pickup leads into the circuit board. The humbucker setup comes with default 250k potentiometers, 3 way toggle switch and 0.047uf capacitors.

 

These are available in both import (long shaft pots, short frame switch), USA (long shaft pots, long frame switch), or right angle (short shaft pots, right angle toggle switch) formats. (ONLY) Gibson Les Pauls will use USA. Epiphones and other import models will use the import format. SGs and similar will use the right angle format. Import models Les Pauls typically use short shaft potentiometers, but we've found through experimentation that due to the nature of the way that the pots are seated at different heights in the cavity, short shaft pots will not work effectively. Long shaft pots are used by shimming the shaft to the correct length with the second nut inside the cavity.


No soldering is required at all, making the installation job take about 10 minutes in total!

 

These are part of our humbucker sized Stratocaster single coil range. A Strat single coil is encased between a humbucker baseplate and humbucker cover to allow them to be installed in any standard humbucker equipped guitar. There's a tiny bit of treble loss due to the additional metal content in the pickup, but they're otherwise constructed and tonally identical.
These are a recreation of the bluesy pickups that were made famous in the 60s by Hendrix. These pickups have the twang, sparkle and clarity that you need to accurately recreate those famous tones.

These will chime like a bell in any position. They excel in any genre short of modern metal; pristine cleans to the most articulate distortion tones you've ever heard. They equally take effect pedals excellently (wah and fuzz particularly!).These are wound with approximately the same wind with push back wire to remain faithful to the original design. RWRP to be hum cancelling in the middle position.
Modern wire and winding patterns introduce a new level of clarity in these pickups that wasn't present in recreations. This clarity gives the pickup a livelier feel and a louder, more expressive quality. All while being able to drive a preamp into those beautiful smokey blues tones.
