Independent customer reviews on ebay –


The sound of the 50s in an alternative appearance.

Scatterwound based on unwound Musicmaster pickups, Duo-sonic 56-60 years.

A similar wire of the 50s and 60s, AWG 42 1/2, was used to obtain pleasant midrange frequencies.

Thick alnico 5 magnets, as used in the 50s.

Single coil is made of black vulcanized fiber.

The bridge pickup is made hotter.

Pickups potted in a mixture of paraffin and beeswax.

The sound is fat, with pleasant midrange frequencies, great for Blues and rock music with a 0.1 uf capacitor. When using a 0.047 mf condenser, the pickups acquire an excellent sound for Surf and Rockabilly music, while maintaining a rich, wide sound that is not lost in the mix with other instruments.
