Genuine custom hand wound vintage pickup full specs:

  • Model T-166 genuine Collins custom hand wound 5/2 Hybrid pickup set with some modern touches
  • California Glass is a .187 Alnico 5, Alnico 2 hybrid set of single coil pickups with vintage stagger. Magnets oriented S-N-S spec and calibrated for strength
    These pickups are overwound 5% at the bridge and 5% underwound at the neck with the middle pickup wound to late ’60’s specs. The underwinding of the neck will give a small mid scooping, while the overwinding at the bridge will provide a mid boost. The Alnico 5 magnets in the 6th, 5th and 4th string positions will keep the bottom end tight and focused while the Alnico 2 magnets in the 3rd, 2nd and 1st string positions will round out the top and coax out the bell tones.
