These pickups have single coil format and are made with the same materials and characteristics as those mounted on the CBS era Duo-Sonic. They are wound by hand with 42 (43 in the bridge) AWG Heavy Formvar wire and "calibrated" Alnico 5 magnets charged one by one by hand, as they did in the 50´s. Bridge pickup have an output of 9,5k to have that extra punch. The neck pickup is RW/RP to get the "hum-cancelling" in the middle position.

The pickups are potted in the right mix of beeswax-paraffin, which prevents the microphonic problems without reducing richness of sound. The coils are made from "forbon" and they have vintage cloth-wire like the originals.

Output: 6.1 k (neck)/ 9.5 k (bridge)

Wire: 42 AWG Heavy Formvar

Magnets: "calibrated" Alnico 5
