This was more like the dragon chasing us - over the years it's been one of our most requested pickup designs. Of course, we had to add our own twists, including sizing it to drop into a standard humbucker rout. A2 magnets, custom covers, lot's of attitude.
Starting with a '60s Country Gentleman as a benchmark, we went after the classic rock-a-billy 'bucker tone, adding some Lollar "secret sauce" along the way. The neck pickup is warm and buttery, with a clear, present top end. The bridge pickup is fat and honky, with a rich low end and great clarity. Combined, they sparkle and spank with clarity and punch. They'll cover everything from "OZ" rock to "Nashville Super Pickers" to "Hot Rods and Hot Babes"... Go Man, Go!
Nickel or gold covers. Sets or singles.
Please note: The Lollartron uses a standard humbucker - sized rout. It is not meant to be a direct replacement for vintage or reproduction Filter'Tron® style pickups.
