This pickup is now available in our proprietary Kwikplug “Instantly Interchangeable” pickup system. Check the appropriate boxes below!
The GFS Gold Foil Single coils really reproduce the sound, feel and VIBE of the old Gold Foil Pickups.
FINALLY somebody puts the look, touch and vibe of the Gold Foils into a standard humbucker case.These are dual coil humbuckers with Alnico V bar magnets and 43 AWG Plain Enamel wire. We wind these on a non magnetic baseplate, and they are specifically wound to give you the smooth, languid relaxed tone of the Gold Foil pickups with all of the high end sparkle and energy... even in a humbucker! You'll find these have the kind of clarity and slice you expect from single coils, with the warmth of smoothness of mini humbuckers, and that unique sweet tone that Gold Foils are famous for. These Alnico versions are a bit sweeter and warmer than the Ferrite versions.
The Bridge pickup is wound to 6.0K and the neck to 5.4K. These are wired with our standard GFS 5 wire cable, so they are coil splittable. We recommend the Alnico versions for coil splitting applications.
These ship in the GFS Retail box and come with height adjusting springs, screws and wiring instructions. These fit all of our humbucker mounting rings. (Not included)
If you chose the Kwikplug version you can order a matching “Solderless” pre-assembled wiring harness for quick and easy “pain-free” installation! Click here to add a harness to your cart.
