B&B PICKUPS BROADCASTER SET...

HANDMADE GUITAR PICKUPS, HAND WOUND BY HAND. ESTIMATED MANUFACTURING TIME 14-23 DAYS - DOMESTIC DELIVERY 1-3 DAYS AND 1-13 WORKING DAYS DEPENDING ON COUNTRY.

Leo Fender created the Broadcaster model in his early days as a guitar builder around 1950. For the bridge pickup he based it on the models he used for his lapsteels. It was a powerful pickup, about 10 kO, with a thick and defined sound. The bridge pickup has alnico V flat magnets and 43 AWG plain enamel copper wire, as well as a steel plate on the underside. The neck pickup is encapsulated in a brass-free nickel silver cover. The magnets are alnico V magnets and the winding is made of 43 AWG plain enamel copper wire. Both pickups are wound in the modern style with RW/RP, so both are in phase and humbucking in the middle position. The finish is completed with lamp black wax plating, as Leo Fender did with his early pickups.

B&B PICKUPS PRE CBS JAZZ...

HANDMADE GUITAR PICKUPS HAND WOUND BY HAND. ESTIMATED MANUFACTURING TIME 14-23 DAYS - DOMESTIC DELIVERY 1-3 DAYS AND 1-13 WORKING DAYS DEPENDING ON COUNTRY.

In 1960 the Fender Jazz Bass model was introduced as a luxury alternative to the Precision Bass which only had one pickup. In its first decade it had 2 different pickup models which are the ones we offer at B&B pickups. In the early years the wire used was Heavy formvar 42 AWG but with the purchase of Fender by CBS the pickups were rewound with Plain enamel 42 AWG wire. This last model is the one that corresponds to the CBS Jazz Bass. The magnets are alnico V type "flat". The two pickups are wound in the modern style with RW/RP, whereby both are in parallel and in phase with humbucking effect in the middle position. The finish of the construction is completed with a wax bath.

B&B PICKUPS VINTAGE 57-62...

HANDMADE GUITAR PICKUPS HAND WOUND BY HAND. ESTIMATED MANUFACTURING TIME 14-23 DAYS - DOMESTIC DELIVERY 1-3 DAYS AND 1-13 WORKING DAYS DEPENDING ON COUNTRY.

The Fender Stratocaster has undergone some significant changes in its construction over time. Its pickups have not been immune to modifications, and so, towards the end of the 50's, the type of magnet was changed to Alnico V. This set has a little more power than the Vintage 54. As with all our sets, the changes from the original pickups are the winding of the middle pickup with RW/RP (reverse wound - reverse polarity) so that the pickups are in phase and humbucking in positions 2 and 4, and some overwinding on the bridge pickup, for a better balance in volume between the pickups. As in all other cases, you can order your set with the original specifications.

B&B PICKUPS VINTAGE 68...

HANDMADE GUITAR PICKUPS, HAND WOUND. ESTIMATED MANUFACTURING TIME 14-23 DAYS - DOMESTIC DELIVERY 1-3 DAYS AND 1-13 WORKING DAYS DEPENDING ON THE COUNTRY.

The "Vintage 68" pickups are a replica of those made by Fender in the early days when CBS bought the company from Leo Fender (circa 1965). They are made with 42 AWG Plain enamel copper wire, staggered alnico V magnets and forbon coil in black for the top piece and gray for the bottom piece. This model produces a very Hendrix style sound, but with the center pickup wound modern style with RW/RP.

B&B PICKUPS SRV STEVIE RAY...

HANDMADE GUITAR PICKUPS HAND WOUND BY HAND. ESTIMATED MANUFACTURING TIME 14-23 DAYS - DOMESTIC DELIVERY 1-3 DAYS AND 1-13 WORKING DAYS DEPENDING ON THE COUNTRY.

Another classic Stratocaster guitar sound is that of Stevie Ray Vaughan. Although he really had a '59 pickup in his #1 (like the vintage 57-62), his sound has been associated with overwound sets like the Texas Specials or my SRV, although that aggressiveness was really in his hands. The SRV set has some major changes from the other Vintage sets. It's based on the Vintage 68 but overwound, so you get a sweet, powerful, punchy, full-bodied blues sound.

B&B PICKUPS SRV STEVIE RAY...

HANDMADE GUITAR PICKUPS HAND WOUND BY HAND. ESTIMATED MANUFACTURING TIME 14-23 DAYS - DOMESTIC DELIVERY 1-3 DAYS AND 1-13 WORKING DAYS DEPENDING ON COUNTRY.

We present here a personal variation of the SRV, with a design that has about 3mm more height than the standard Stratocaster coils. The Tall has a sweet, characterful sound, more clarity and better high frequency response, but on the other hand it has less body than the SRV. It should be noted that the installation of this set may require a cutout in the holes that house the pickups.

B&B PICKUPS VINTAGE 54 SET...

HANDMADE GUITAR PICKUPS, HAND WOUND BY HAND. ESTIMATED DELIVERY TIME 14-23 DAYS.

In 1954 the Fender Stratocaster was introduced as the brand's second guitar. The vintage 54 pickups are a replica of the model with which that era began. The three pickups in those instruments had the same specifications, with the slight human-induced changes inherent in hand winding

B&B PICKUPS CLASSIC '61...

HANDMADE GUITAR PICKUPS HAND WOUND BY HAND. ESTIMATED MANUFACTURING TIME 14-23 DAYS - DOMESTIC DELIVERY 1-3 DAYS AND 1-13 WORKING DAYS DEPENDING ON COUNTRY.

In the early 60's, Gibson standardized on alnico V magnets in their PAF's, resulting in a detailed sound with presence. Our replicas are built with the materials used then: 42 AWG plain enamel copper wire, alnico V magnets, nickel silver (brass-free) cover and mounting plate, steel screw fastening bar, and maple wood shim. As options, the winding can be between 7 and 9 kO, and the pickups can be supplied with or without cover, with butyrate coils. Also, the output cable can be single-wire and wire-mesh-jacketed, or four-wire plus ground for split coil.

B&B PICKUPS LATE '50 PAF'S...

HANDMADE GUITAR PICKUPS HAND WOUND BY HAND. ESTIMATED MANUFACTURING TIME 14-23 DAYS - DOMESTIC DELIVERY 1-3 DAYS AND 1-13 WORKING DAYS DEPENDING ON COUNTRY.

Our Late '50 PAF's use alnico IV, which subtly changes the character of the humbucker to sound smooth, sweet, yet full-bodied. There is not a lot of data on the magnets gibson used in this early period from '56 to '61, but it seems that he used alnico II as well as IV and V, but just as alnico II is associated with the '57 PAF's, so is alnico IV associated with the sound of Mark Knopfler and his '59 Les Paul.

B&B PICKUPS ORIGINAL 57...

HANDMADE GUITAR PICKUPS HAND WOUND BY HAND. ESTIMATED MANUFACTURING TIME 14-23 DAYS - DOMESTIC DELIVERY 1-3 DAYS AND 1-13 WORKING DAYS DEPENDING ON THE COUNTRY.

The year 57 is a year that changed the world of the electric guitar with the appearance of humbuckers thanks to the ingenuity of Mr. Seth Lover who was working at that time in Gibson. This model tries to represent that first model of humbuckers that most manufacturers associate with the use of the alnico 2 magnet, although there is little evidence of this and it is said that in that first period from 56 to 61 Gibson used indistinctly the grades of alnico they had in stock.
