String-Through Steel Guitar Pickup
This is an exact copy of the Supro/ Valco/ National string through steel guitar pickup as used on the "Coodercaster." The pickup is humbucking yet it sounds exactly like a single coil. Output is remarkably high yet it has all of the clarity of a low output pickup. The steel plate that goes over the strings spreads the magnetic field to surround the strings. This increases the pickup's sensitivity and reduces magnetic pull on the strings which increases sustain. Chrome plated to look as good as it sounds.
Alnico 5 magnets, dual split coil humbucking construction with adjustable poles. My replacement pickup is made without the bridge built in like the original pickups so you can mount it on any guitar. The pickup requires a small route 1/8" deep or it can be surface mounted on top of a pickgaurd. For guitars with tall bridges we make shims to raise the pickup.
String height of less than 7/16th high off the body requires insetting the pickup into the guitar, string height taller than 7/16" requires shimming.
Foot print is 2 X 3-5/8". Pole spacing is 2.175" center to center of the two outside poles. Accommodating for narrower spacing is achieved by angling the pickup.
