BREXIT - EU CUSTOMERS. It appears that orders over €22 will have VAT and possibly other import handling charges added on entry to EU, payable by the customer before delivery.

We are constantly monitoring the situation and will try to ensure that we continue to serve our EU clients as best we can.

Chickenbone John handwound "drop -in" 3 pole pickup

Product Description

3 pole pickup for cigar box guitar, handmade in our workshop. Strictly limited numbers. These are individually handmade, from the bobbins to the final wrap. We wax pot them to reduce any microphonic effect and wrap the coil with tape to protect  it and give a neat finish.

  • Alnico 5 magnets
  • Scatterwound with 42g enamelled wire
  • 13mm pole spacing
  • Sapele top, TruOil finished
  • Shielded Van Damme hookup wire (300mm long)

These aren't super hot - around 6kOhm resistance. Please note that as these are individually handmade, there may be some variation between individual pickups. Simple resistance measurements don't give the full picture of a pickup's performance, and these give a nice full, warm sound. Check the video for how these sound, both clean and overdriven. Supplied with mounting screws. The top plate is generously sized so that when you cut out the top of the box to drop in the bobbin, you don't need to worry about being too precise or accurate. The pickup projects about 1/2 inch (13mm) below the top face of the box, so you don't need a particularly deep notch in your thru' neckstick.

Due to the on going Coronavirus pandemic please be aware that shipping and delivery services may be affected or limited. Unfortunately we have had to remove some Hermes and UPS delivery options from our list of couriers due to their closure of parcel pickups and drop offs. We are trying our best to carry on as normal but please be aware there may be delays.

We will also be reducing the number of post drop offs and collections to twice a week to reduce the risk to both ourselves and our couriers.

Please note we are a small family business not Amazon, and that whilst we aim to pick, quality check and pack all orders within two working days, due to limited man power and time, orders may be delayed a little at busy times and weekends. Orders placed on Friday will not be packed until the following Monday to be sent out either on Monday or to be collected by our couriers on Tuesday. Please bear with us, we try to do our best!

Delivery times for orders are from the time of dispatch, not from the time of order placement. The time given for shipping is an estimate and not a guarantee.

You will receive an email from us once your order has been dispatched (this email will sometimes be sent to your spam folder). You may also receive an email from the courier with any updates on your order delivery time. If you have provided a phone number with your order you may also receive this information by message.  

If your order is for a present/gift or needs to arrive on a select date please let us know in the note option during checkout or through a follow up email. 

FOR CUSTOMERS OUTSIDE the UK and EU

Please note that tax and duty may be charged in your country and requires payment before the goods are released to you. It is your responsibility to deal with this. Please note we have no control over the process. There is often a minimum value before tax and duty are charged and advise you to check the value at which tax and duty become due, to ensure that you are willing to pay these additional charges.

If you are ordering outside the UK please take note the currency in use is £ (pound sterling).


Please be aware that if you purchase a product using PayPal that contains a La Aroma de Cuba box (guitar, kit etc) due to the item having the word Cuba in there may be a delay with the payment going through the system as PayPal is an American company and so has to abide by USA laws, regardless of where the item is being shipped from and to. 

If you have any questions about our shipping or about your order please send us an email and we will see what we can do to help.
