1960s Star brand pickup Hoshino Gakki – Rebuild


A funky little Star branded pickup shell I picked up on Ebay empty and placed on one of my own handwound Firebird coils.  Star is a little known brand built by Hoshino Gakki Ten (Tama) they produced guitars under the Ibanez, Cimar and Goldentone badges along with others.  The pickup inside is one side of a Firebird pickup 6.5K complete with an Alnico 5 bar magnet.  It has a nice well balanced clean tone and the rebuild was a success.
