All cigar box guitar pickups are made when ordered so there is a 2 to 3 day wait before despatched
Single Coil Drop In Pickups
These single coil pickups are handmade and scatter wound, the winding's range between 7500 to14000.
The winding wire is either 43awg or 42awg they are clockwise wound unless you want a setup like a telecaster then one will be wound clockwise and the other will be anti clockwise.The pickups are magnetized north sideup unless again you go for the Telecaster setup then one will be north up and the other south up the magnets are Alinco V5 .
The pickup winding's have also been shielded in copper tape and have been potted in Paraffin Wax and Bees Wax.I have used copper eyelets for hook-up-wire soldered connections so you get a very good soldered joint and there is 10"off hook-up-wire already soldered.
Pickups come in Mahogany,Oak,Walnut and Black Phenolic Board.
String spacings are 13mm or 15mm
Custom pickups can be made with different spacings just use the contact form to get in touch

Some pictures off the recently made humbuckers for cigar box guitars also includes some measurements , I have tried to keep the height off the pickup very compact and the total height is 18mm. They are a classic moderate output humbucker, a lot off different winding's have been tried before i got it right. They have been wired with four wires so you can coil split the humbucker to a single coil pickup by adding a toggle switch.The pole spacing's are 15mm and I hope to have some made with 13mm pole spacing's soon.Perfect for your cigar box guitars and other three stringed instruments.Come In Walnut,Mahogany,Oak and Phenolic Board.If you require a different string spacing's for your cigar box guitar or have any questions just contact me using the contact page.
