VINTAGE 50s PAF TRIBUTE SET
OLD STYLE  50's HAND WOUND HUMBUCKER SET A tribute to a much loved and revered pickup: the 50's PAF. Plain enamel wire is used. Coils are deliberately mismatched. The long magnet is custom made to my specs and based on a vintage alnico formula. 5-40 nickel plated fillister head screws are used, as are vintage type long leg nickel silver bases, wooden spacers and custom machined pole shoes. Custom slugs are used. Now with butyrate bobbins in double black or zebra. Double cream bobbins available only under nickel covers. Low output, sweet singing vintage type tones with a great harmonic edge. These pickups are supplied wax potted. Should you prefer them unpotted please ask at time of ordering. Single conductor vintage type hookup wire. NOTES: COVERS NOT INCLUDED - see footnote for cover pricing. A2, A3, A4 & Isotropic A5 magnets available.

BH-16
HIGH OUTPUT BRIDGE PICKUP
Brierley Guitar Pickups is developing a range of CNC machine wound pickups. The CNC wound pickups will not be replacing the hand wound pickups. They will be made alongside the hand wound range and are also made one at a time. Only the winding method is different.

The first of these is the BH-16 bridge humbucker which is now  available. It already has quite a following due to it's great tone, clarity, touch sensitivity and screaming harmonics. It's a higher output pickup with great fat tones primarily designed for hard and classic rock. Cleans up nicely too.

Available in Black, White, Zebra, reverse Zebra colours. Trem or non-trem spacing available. No covers are used on this model.
 $145 AUD each
