GFS Metal Foil Pickups offer a unique combination of fullness, sweetness and crystalline, transparent high end. These use custom made bar magnets and vintage style scatterwound coils.
The covers are all triple-chromed "German Silver", with unplated German Silver baseplates, and the entire assembly thoroughly wax potted for squeal-free performance.
These are the dual coil Metal Foil pickups that will mount in any standard humbucker location. When run as humbuckers these are noise cancelling. Each pickup uses a pair of custom made Alnico V magnet that gives you much more fullness and a faster attack than a standard pickup. These are warmer and fatter than the Ferrite versions, but still dramatically sweeter and crisper than P90s or typical modern humbucker. We have three versions: 4K, 5K and 6K. Each may be used for bridge or neck. Each pickup comes with a 15" long lead that may be soldered to your existing pots and switch.
For a typical guitar we'd suggest the 6K for the bridge and the 4K for the neck. For a brighter more crystalline bridge sound use the 5K in that position, for a thicker, warmer neck sound use a 5k in that position. For the most 50's/60's sound use 4K in both positions. These are compatible with any Kwikplug wiring harness, and when used with our humbucker coil tap harnesses, the middle position coil tapped IS noise cancelling.
