Listing Detail Tabs

This auction is for a set of two pickups.

Because nickel is harder to work with, most pickup makers started using brass pickup covers from the early 60’s on. This lead to players removing the pickup covers since brass tends to mask some of the high frequencies. These pickups have nickel covers for the best sound and best looks too (nickel looks way better than chrome plated brass).

The Vintage Nickel Humbuckers have Alnico V magnets for that vintage tone, while the Hot Nickel Humbuckers (see my other listings) look the same, but have a ceramic bar magnet which gives increased output. Both are vacuum wax potted before assembly, then wax potted completely after as well.

They come with a four-wire cable which allows coil tap installations. For standard use wrap the red and white wires (which are soldered together) in insulating tape, use green for signal and black for earth.

Neck: 7.2KO, 4.2H
Bridge: 8.2KO, 5H
