Single Coil Pickups

WVSN Neck – $32.99    WVSM Middle – $32.99    WVSB Bridge – $32.99
A very accurate replica of a 60's style pickup.
taggered polepieces with chamfered Alnico V magnets. Chamfering the polepieces focuses the magnetic field giving good highs but still allowing some mids to come through to stop the pickup sounding thin. Middle pickup is reverse wound/reverse polarity. Bridge pickup is slightly overwound for better balance.

WHSN Neck – $31.99    WHSM Middle – $31.99    WHSB Bridge – $31.99
Higher output version of the WVS.
Non-staggered flat polepieces, ideal if you use a lot of effects. Featuring Alnico V magnets, the WHS pickups are rich in harmonics and natural sustain.  Neck and middle pickups make the best choice for balance if you are running a Humbucker in the bridge position on your guitar. Bridge pickup slightly overwound for better balance.

WVTN Neck (covered) – $33.99     WVTB Bridge (covered) – $34.99
A matched pair of early 60's voiced pickups. This classic combination has been used for the last 40 years to create all styles of music from Country to Rock, Blues and even Jazz. Bridge pickup has raised polepieces for that extra bite.
Humbucking Pickups
WHHBN Neck – $24.99     WHHBB Bridge – $24.99
Open coil style Humbucker with a higher output than the WVC. Harmonically rich with tight lower frequency response. Special windings with ceramic magnets give good highs without sounding thin.  Nickel silver backing plates complete this high quality pickup.
WVHZN Neck – $32.99      WVHZB Bridge – $32.99
Whilst the original spec for Humbucker bobbins was black, a shortage of these items on the production line in the 1950's resulted in bobbins being sourced in "virgin" material (ivory coloured plastic), hence when guitarists started to remove their brass covers, they discovered that some guitars contained what have become known as "Zebra pickups". Some people believe these are the best sounding humbuckers ever. I just think they look great, and by using the same windings as our WVC pickup, they are as authentic sounding as anything currently available.
WVCNCR Neck (chrome) – $48.99      WVCBCR Bridge (chrome) – $49.99
