Vintage ’57 Specials
Single Pickup or Set of 3 Pickups
Wound as carefully as possible to recreate those classic Californian Pickups of the 1950s, the Vintage ’57 Specials’ Alnico 3 Magnets have been hand bevelled to match the originals’ aesthetic quality. Using 42 Gauge Heavy Formvar wire and wound to the original output, the Vintage 57s give a fatter twang than our modern set and have a muscly musicality to them whilst retaining a warm glassy tone. Perfect for maple fingerboard instruments.
