  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", baseplate thin brass, and the entire assembly thoroughly wax potted for squeal-free performance.

  These are the single coil Metal Foil pickups that will mount in any standard humbucker location. Each pickup uses a 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 humbuckers. We have three versions: 5K, 6K and 7K. 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 7K for the bridge and the 5K for the neck. For a brighter more crystalline bridge sound use the 6K in that position, for a thicker, warmer neck sound use a 6k in that position. For the most pure vintage sound go with a pair of 5Ks. All three pickups are "Clock Wound" for the sweetest and most "present" in-between position. These are compatible with any Kwikplug wiring harness.
