Brisbane Guitarist Chris Burt from the band Sensaii commissioned me to design a hot set of humbuckers for his black lefty USA Strat. I had already built him a ripper cream bobbin hot neck pickup for his Les Paul we called “The Burtbucker”. The bridge needed to be a 53mm spaced unit with a little spice. I used the same wire and wind count as my “Mr Crunchy” bridge pickup but with the wider bobbin I was able to get this pickup to 14.4k with 43 AWG red poly wire. Both pickups are wound with red poly and alnico 5 magnets. The neck is 9.7k with 42 AWG wire which is very fat and the bridge 14.4k with plenty of crunch! So the Burtbucker matched set was born and I guess the rest will be history!
