The classic T-bird thunder! Custom magnets, bobbins,
steel base plate and pickup covers made from scratch...
essentially the same as the originals with a few
improvements. I wind a hotter bridge pickup for better
balance, and a very quick wax potting to keep the pickup
cover from being overly microphonic (and to ensure the
coils don't become more microphonic over time). It's
clear and smooth, but can also get the trademark growl
Thunderbirds are known for. Alnico 5 bar magnets.
Nickel is the standard cover, but we have chrome,
gold, and black chrome available in limited quantities. 7.95K neck, 9K bridge
We also have optional black pickup shims (1/16" neck - 1/8" bridge)
for retrofitting into Epiphone basses with
the rectangular plastic pickups.
