You have probably guessed by now that I love old catalogue guitars. Manufacturers such as Danelectro, Harmony, Kay, Teisco Del Rey and Valco, to name but a few, built some pretty cool and iconic instruments back in the day. What made those guitars special were the pickups. Danelectro had the lipstick-tube. Not only did these pickups look great, they had tone by the truckload. These old school pickups are considered by many enthusiasts to be among the finest guitar pickups ever designed and produced, and are revered and collected around the world.
They reflect the era of discovery when the electric guitar was new and experimental. I knew that if I wanted to design Caught Between - Albach Duo - The Raw And The Cooked - Works For Classic Guitar Duo create modern day reflections of those pioneering pickups it would require support from the best builders within the industry. The first pickup guru I approached was legendary Seattle builder, Jason Lollar. I asked him if he would like to build a blade-style single coil pickup for a Jimmy Reed influenced guitar I was designing for British Blues great, Ian Siegal?
The pickup is powerful, the tone seductive and, when fitted, aesthetically pleasing to the eye. Its polished nickel-plated blade has been designed to protrude up through a slot in a conventional pickguard or body top.
When I gave the prototype guitar to Ian, he immediately took her out on tour with his band. If you are going to have your guitars recorded, there is nobody better than the BBC!
The second pickup guru I approached was Bob G. Bob fitted the bill perfectly. Working from his workshop in San Diego, he specialises in making s era pickups that look and have the sound of the Mississippi Delta Blues. They are hand-wound, finely crafted works of art, and are the perfect complement for anyone looking to play authentic fingerstyle and bottleneck Blues.
There was something magical about this guitar and pickup, while discussing it with Bob, the penny dropped. Our modern Die Moritat Vom Mord Auf Dem Dudlsberg - Heidi Kabel ● Henry Vahl - Singen Schlager - Lieder - Chans were built using Alnico V 5mm diameter The Worthing Song - Bleech - The Worthing Song magnets, Bakelite bobbins and scatterwound in 42 AWG copper plain-enamel wire for increased clarity and tone.
We are on a roll and focused. Our brief is simple: to develop a series of retro-vintage pickups that look and sound great on any guitar, including Mainstream. As always, thank you for your time and support. All Rights Reserved Hosted by stem.
