Inspired by legendary pickups of the '50s. Golden Age single-coil pickups bring out the best in your guitar. The reviews say it all: "they really, really sing...great buy for the price." Wax-potted AWG42 coil windings and Alnico 5 staggered polepieces deliver vintage tone, optimum output at each position, balanced string response, and microphonic suppression. They're the real deal, for a lot less money.
Looking for extra punch? Our #5423 HOT model is specially wound to 7.6K ohms, for the bridge or neck position.
Bonus!Two covers (one black and one white) are supplied with each Golden Age single-coil pickup, for easy pickguard matching.
Golden Age single-coil pickups have vintage dimensions for easy installation in standard bodies, and two vintage-style fabric-insulated hookup wires. Polepieces have 2-1/16" spread. Mounting screws, rubber tubing and wiring diagrams are included.
The middle-position pickup is reverse wound, reverse polarity, for hum cancellation at the #2 and #4 switch positions.
Note: Each pickup has a copper shield surrounding the coil, a modern feature for 60-cycle hum suppression not found on vintage pickups. To play "naked" vintage-style, simply snip the small jumper wire that connects the foil to the pickup's ground lug.
