Made with authentic details and scatter wound winding

I studied about two dozen original pickups produced from 1953 to 1970.

I made several dozen tests of the chemical composition of the wire and magnets.

I took measurements of the gauge and thickness of the wire.

I took measurements of the shape and thickness of the vulcanized fiber.

thanks to me, I was able to order wire and magnets based on the data received.

Today I can offer you pickups made with maximum precision. These pickups are made with historically correct components:

– The exact match of the wire, a slightly thicker wire that is now not found in the American industry, since 1970. A thin layer of varnish, heavily baked after application, after which it becomes a dark shade. But not as black as on modern Plain Enamel. It was up to and including 1969 that Plain Enamel wire had a different shade of color, see photos of the original pickups. A lighter brown or crimson shade. I was able to make a batch of wire according to the CBS-era wire specification. At this time, there was a wire of 3 calibers in the original pickups. This is the standard AWG42, as well as intermediate calibers between AWG42 and AWG43 or AWG41 and AWG42. The resistance of these pickups was usually 5.5-5.8 K and lower for AWG41 1/2. AND 6.2-6.4 K and higher for AWG42 1/2. Now what is usually erroneously referred to as Low Wind and Hot Wound.

– Exact match of the magnet. Thickness, height, chemical composition of the magnet. The former composition differs from the modern composition of Alnico 5. This is why some manufacturers use alnoco2 for imitation, since it is closer in magnetic field strength to the original composition.

– Fiber thickness, often in the lower fiber it is customary to use a thickness of about 2.2-2.4 mm the Original pickups of the 60s had a fiber thickness of 2.6-2.7 mm. I was able to find a 2.6 mm fiber for the lower part. The protrusion of the magnet below the wire affects the sound, this is also important.

– The resistance of the pickups was determined by the thickness of the wire, not the number of turns. It is very convenient to call them low wind, if the industry does not produce this caliber of wire. But this is a different sound. The resistance of my pickups matches the original without loss in sound.

– Winding pattern. Historically, the CBS era is machine winding. I used the best of this pattern and added my own color, trying to emphasize the sound of guitarists of that era in the winding.

– The most important thing is the sound. This set has respect for the clanging attack of the late Jimi Hendrix and the jar-popping sound of Richie Blackmore.

Pickups potted in a mixture of paraffin and beeswax.

Resistance: Neck – 5.5 K, Middle – 5.6 K, Bridge – 5.8 K, DCR +/- 5%

    The item I’ve bought was Alexander Pribora 1967 strat pickups set. Purely amazing pickups! Mounted on my custom It seems to be a limited run, but if you want pickups that are even better than original Fender’s Custom Shop AY 69 you should go ang get 1967 Pribora set!

    1967 replacement set. High quality pickups. Nicely aged. I like them more than CS 69. Bottom end is more warm yet the highs kept at good level. Relatively low output but somehow can sound really powerful on good amp. Ac 30 combines really good with them. Great Clapton sound likes, in my humble opinion. Tried on Adler light body and maple neck. 0.1 orange cap value was slightly too dark to my taste. I put vintage ceramic 0.1 which actually is 0.08. I recommend this set. Delivery time to Switzerland was more than 1 month, so pls be patient.

    Great balanced, Amazing sound.

    I installed this pickups my CS Strat, No complaints at all. It’s amazing.
    I have 69 original strat, I compared sound with my CS.
    It’s a highly subjective point of view, but It was much better original strat sound.
    This pickups has vintage feel more then 1969 strat sound.

    I dare say this item is the most vintagest replacement pickup in the world.

    I have a 2014 American Deluxe Stratocaster with Pribora Voodoo pickups in it. I built up a new pick guard (mint green USA, Art of Tone wiring kit) with these 1967 Pribora pickups. I used a 0.10 mfd orange drop tone cap and 50’s wiring. I set pickup height using the great article on the WGS speaker website. These are the best pickups I have ever heard. Notes bloom, each pickup is well balanced and has its own voice. You can dig in or hit the strings lightly for different attack–picking dynamics are superb. I’m still getting used to this new sound through my hand built Tweed Deluxe 5E3 clone. Low end is fantastic, highs shimmer without any “ice pick” sounds. I’ve owned several sets of Pribora pickups and have been very pleased with each, including my Telecaster with Blues Classic in them. I’m blown away with the sound of these pickups–I think they may possibly rival ANY boutique pickup you can purchase. Bravo Alexander–well done! I would like to see more demos of his pickups on high quality quitars–not just cheap Squires, etc.
