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".

Fantastic

I installed one of these lipstick's in the neck position of one of my Gordon Smith guitars. I'm very impressed witt the clear and crisp tone from this pickup. Very well balanced throughout the ranges, 'flutey' with a touch of vintage twang. Works very well blended with the P90 that's in the bridge for funky sounds and surprisingly good for bluesey soloing when played on it's own. On paper it's very low output but don't be fooled, there's plenty of rich sounds to be had if you make the most of the volume and tone controls of the guitar. Great take on the single coil. Great/appropriate price too. just goes to show you don't need to spend a fortune to get great sounds. Pickups aren't rocket science

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.
