Each of our pickup kits has 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.
