Description

An interesting set of vintage Hofner 511 type staple pickups I think might have come from a KAPA brand guitar.  KAPA were a 1960s USA built guitar that used Hofner pickups and so far the only set I find mount like these relates to that brand.  I have looked under the covers and both have original Hofner coils, one is a 9.64k humbucker and the other a 5.9k single coil.  The humbucker has more wear on the cover and I suspect it is the neck and the single coil the bridge.  They are both standard staple height and would sit in a pickup slot and the tab/screw nut is designed to sit under the guard with no height adjustment.  You could mod them for a spring height adjustment by adding threaded tabs.  They both come with the original mounting screws and nuts.
