Get that clean, chiming Lipstick tone first heard in the '50s.
Golden Age single-coil and hot humbucker models fit Strat® pickguards and standard humbucker mounting rings.

Vintage vibe, great price!
Golden Age Lipstick pickups feature waxed poly-coated coil wire wound on Alnico 5 bar magnets, encased in iconic chrome-plated metal tubes. This fully shielded design produces the clean, classic jangly sound, while sized for easy installation in modern guitars. A favorite for slide playing, too. We also added a 4-conductor shielded hookup wire to our blistering hot humbucker, for an expanded tone palette.

Screws, springs and wiring diagrams are included. These pickups work with any string spacing up to 2-3/16".

A perfect choice

As I was looking fo a Midi-Guitar with Lipstick Pickups I found only one solution: I bought one of each item and had it built in a Godin Freeway SA as neck-pickup (humbucker with humbucker to single coil switch) and and as middle pickup singlecoil.
What should I say: This instrument now absolutely meets my requirements for a Midi-Guitar with Lipstick Pickups and a Standard Humbucker in the neck-position. Absolutely great. Perfect sound, perfect play, perfect neck, perfect anything. A perfect extension to my "working guitars".

Thank you at Steward-McDonald for these excellent pickups with an also excellent service.
