Chickenbone John handwound 3 pole pickup

Product Description

3 pole pickup for cigar box guitar, handmade in our workshop. Strictly limited numbers. These are individually handmade. We double wax pot them - once after we wind the coil, then the windings are protected by a wrap of traditional cotton baker's twine and wax potted again, to protect and seal it, and to reduce the microphonic effect.

  • Alnico 5 magnets
  • Scatterwound with 42g enamelled wire
  • 13mm pole spacing
  • Cherrywood top, TruOil finished
  • Van Damme shielded hookup wire

These aren't super hot - around 5kOhm resistance. Please note that as these are individually handmade, there may be some variation (approximately + or - 5%) 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 oyu dont' need a particularly deep notch in your thru' neckstick.
