I build these pickups to order with an approximate 3-4 week turnaround after receipt of full payment. Please contact me prior to purchase for an accurate ETA.
Roodoo: Hendrix inspired tone
I wind these roughly to ’68 Strat specs with a little more in the bridge. These are essentially a lefthanded pickup for a right handed guitar. The A and B string magnets are swapped around to create this effect. This set has a non reverse wound middle pickup but I will wind the middle pickups reverse for humbucking in position 2 and 4.
- Available in right and lefthanded
- Alnico 5 reverse staggered magnets (Flat tops)
- Plain enamel 42AWG wire
- Non reverse wound middle pickup (Please contact to order RWRP middle)
- Grey bottom CBS style fiber bobbins
- Bridge 5.9k, neck and middle 5.75k
- Black and yellow vintage cloth leads
- Choice of black, white or aged white covers (Please specify)
- Choice of beveled or round head stainless screws (Please specify)
- Wax potted to prevent feedback
$279 for a calibrated set of 3.
I have sold bucket loads of these Roodoo sets over the years. My most memorable customer was Frank from Florida who put his set in a Strat Plus formerly owned by Bill Carson himself!
Here is what Frank had to say about his Roodoos,
“I put them in a Strat Plus that Bill Carson (the original Strat test pilot) gave me. Later in life I got a koa body for it. I’ve never played a Strat that sounded like this. I don’t have the words at my command but it’s something like an aural first kiss”
Here are some sound clips of the Roodoos in action!
