A matched pair of wired pickups. These are solder pickups and not compatible with our Kwikplug harnesses, but ARE compatible with our “Solder” harnesses. You get exactly what is shown, plus correct trim ring mounting screws.
This our most authentic-sounding Patent Applied For style pickup- NOW FOUR WIRE FOR COIL TAPPING!!- but with the GFS touch- a little hotter, a little warmer, a little fuller- a LOT cheaper! Classic output levels- wound like a good solid set of late 50's PAF's- 8.5-8.8K for the Bridge, 8.0-8.2K for the neck. Vintage construction with classic bobbin shape and size, Formvar 42 gauge enamel wire, Nickel polepieces and adjusting screws- All thoroughly wax impregnated with BEESWAX- Geez- could we give you a better pickup for the money?
The vintage style baseplate is proudly stamped with the mighty GFS logo- to tell it apart form the sleazy imitators out there.
This is a great pickup- vintage voiced but Big, Bold and VERY warm. I have a set in my '58 Historic, and I can tell you these CAN HANG with the boutique boys. Hey- you don't need to spend $300 for a GREAT set of pickups- trust me on this one. Like all GFS pickups these have noticeably more bottom end than the big name brands. Our signature sound is crisp, clear and REALLY warm. If you own a good tube amp then these are for you.
