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.
These are single coil units with flat Alnico bar magnets and 43 AWG Plain Enamel Wire that gives you a smoother, warmer sound with PLENTY of amp driving bite and a very elegant restrained jangle on top. Unlike most single coils and P90s, these don't punch as hard as normal pickups- creating a smoother more liquid tone in both bridge and neck position. Fantastic for rhythm guitar, Slide guitar or sweeter, more melodic lead playing, with a warmer, rounder high end than the Ferrite versions.
The Bridge pickup is wound to 6.8K and the neck to 6.0K. The neck is RW/RP so the middle position IS noise cancelling. These are wound on a non magnetic metal baseplate with a shielded metal braided cable. They are vacuum potted in a parrafin/beeswax mixture. We ship the pickup in a GFS box with wiring instructions, foam mounting pads and mounting screws.
If you choose 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.
