Each of our pickup kits features vintage-style parts and includes an assembly diagram to get you started.
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.
Kit includes the basics for a pickup that's straight from the '50s:
Black fiber bobbin flatwork
Vintage specification staggered-height polepieces, ready to magnetize (instructions included, Alnico 2 magnets are marked red on one end to tell them apart from Alnico 5's)
