Neck pickup “Vintage ’50s Formvar”

I wind these neck pickups to vintage ’50s specs using 43 AWG Formvar wire and alnico 3 magnets. The result is a sweet warm vintage tone and a perfect match for my ’50s Formvar Bridge units.

  • Available in right and lefthanded
  • Alnico 3 magnets
  • Period correct 43 AWG Heavy Formvar wire
  • Wound to 7.65k with custom winds available
  • Cloth pull back vintage style wire
  • Choice of bare nickel, nickel or chrome covers (Please specify)
  • Choice of pickguard or body mount screws  (Please specify)
  • Rubber mounts
  • Wax potted for feedback

Bridge “Vintage ’50s Formvar”

I wind my Vintage ’50s style bridge pickups with Formvar wire on a flat poled alnico 3 bobbin.  I don’t base this pickup on any actual vintage Fender pickup specs.  I find the original 7.5k in plain enamel a tad too bright so I wind these to the same 7.5k output but use the warmer sounding Formvar wire.  The tone is warm with a round clean tone and these pickups are ideal for the clean country player.

Features,

  • Available in right and lefthanded
  • Alnico 3 .195 inch magnets ’50s style non staggered
  • Period correct 42 AWG Heavy Formvar wire
  • Wound to 7.5k with custom winds available
  • Cloth pull back vintage style wire
  • Black string standard  (Please specify for white)
  • Copper plated steel baseplate
  • Stainless screws and rubber mounts
  • Wax potted for feedback
