Product Features

  • These are a single coil design machine winding and calibrated with the magnetic field to produce double the output inductance of regular single coils with each set of pickups having its own unique flavour. This special winding also has the added advantage of keeping the Ohms roughly the same as a vintage wound single coil.
  • The mid position pickup is reverse wound and opposed magentic polarity to ensure true hum cancelling properties in switch positions 2 and 4. All pickups are wax potted to reduce unwanted noise
  • Flat pole pieces and no trapezoid bases mean these pickups are suitable for left and right handed guitars.
  • Supplied with screws and springs for fixing. All coils are wax potted

Product Features

  • The middle (3) position gives a true single coil sound which is not hum canceling and is not like an Evolution humbucker
  • When played in the 2 or 4 position, the middle single-coil combines in parallel with one coil of either humbucker and produces a distinctive tone with hum cancellation
  • When the 5-way switch is in the 1 or 5 position, you hear the neck or bridge humbucker
  • A schematic of this wiring configuration is included with the ISCV2
