he cool looks are only surpassed by the amazing tone! Designed from the ground up right here in our Boston shop, all new molds and mounting brackets, all custom designed by us. Don't fall for imitators, only Pro-Tubes are stamped with the GFS Logo on the bottom! Look- everyone knows the old Dano lipstick tube pickups looked and sounded really cool. Want to mount them in a humbucker equipped guitar? Can't do it! Now I know a few other manufacturers have tried their hand at a Lipstick tube humbucker- but to my ears, they don't have the power AND the jangle. I feel this set DOES have both- fat warm bottom, incredible chime in the mids, and that great ethereal sparkle on top- in humbucker mode!! They are four wire + ground pickups so you can do any number of series/parallel, split-coil wiring schemes as well. In split coil mode this is a standard single coil lipstick tube! These are wound SUPER hot- 12K for the bridge pickup, 9K for the matching neck pickup (Sold Below). These are HIGH END Boutique Quality pickups- using Alnico II magnets, vintage style plain enamel coil wiring, 5 Wire leads for coil tapping and many more imaginative wiring schemes, and they come complete with a black humbucker ring to fit practically ANY guitar- from Les Paul®s to cheap copies.
