Gold Foil


Price: $180.00

One of the first questions we get asked when we meet guitar pickers is - “Do you make Gold Foil pickups”?.

Well, we finally took the hint, and spent the time (two years of R&D) to get it right. We use custom made parts, built to our specs. We hand stamp the foil inserts, one at a time - even the rivets holding the pickup together are custom made. As with all the pickups we make, every aspect of the design has been scrutinized and tested – to sound right and last a lifetime.

Our Gold Foil is a single coil pickup with unusual clarity and power. Expect crystal clear top end with lots of in-your-face harmonic overtones, and a wide dynamic range that can make a typical tube amp give up the dirt - while retaining all the detail and “3D” you expect from a Lollar. Rubberized ferrite magnet with 44 gauge wire. Single conductor only.

Available as singles, 2 piece or 3 piece sets.
Nickel, Chrome or Gold covers.

Neck 6.2K, Middle 6.8K, Bridge 7.25K

PLEASE NOTE: Shims are used to adjust the height of Gold Foil pickups. Some guitars can benefit from using a shim if the neck angle on the guitar places the pickup too far away from the strings. Bridge pickups should be typically set around 1/8" from the stings and the neck around 3/16" to 1/4" from the strings. Actual placement must be set by ear and varies from player to player. If you need to order shims for your pickup, you can do so at this link: Order Shims for Gold Foil pickups.
