Now you can build your own guitar pickups from the ground up: go for the vintage sound or wind it your own way for custom tone!

Choose Alnico 5 or Alnico 2 magnets:
Alnico 2 magnets give a warmer tone and low end response with smooth, singing highs. Many builders use them in the bridge pickups of solidbodies.
Alnico 5 produces a brighter tone with a tighter low end and stinging highs. They're great for neck position pickups, to help keep the tone clear without getting muddy.

Pickup Kit for Tele Neck includes

  • Black fiber bobbin flatwork
  • Brass eyelets
  • Polepieces ready to magnetize (instructions included, Alnico 2 magnets are marked red on one end to tell them apart from Alnico 5's)
  • Black and white push-back wire
  • Mounting screws
  • Compressible tubing for height adjustment

Pickup Kit for Tele Neck

By Martin from Rosario, Santa Fe, Argentina

great sounding, easy to work with kit. Loved the result but i think it would be cheaper considering that the cover it's not included

great kit !

Still love those kits. I purchased almost every single one of them. But why starting to sell cover and pickup separately?

Great kit

This is a great pickup kit. It's a bit difficult to put the magnets in the holes, but once you get in right it's really solid. Built a Tele neck pickup with plain enamel wire... Great sound, and this is only the second pickup I build!

great kit...used the alnico 2

This is a good kit and makes a nice sounding pickup, but the cover (brass) is a little cheap; a nickel silver cover would be better quality.

great product

I don't think I could do better than stewmac has already done creating these accurate kits.

Absolutely awesome. Customers love these pickups, but it is hard to see how you could go wrong.
