Sixtus humbuckers are really flat: 5mm, only 1/5" at 6000 coil windings. This type is made for acoustic sound and it won't bother when it gets crunchy. The flat pickups are available in covers of brass or nickelsilver with the output cable leaving to the side. Upon request, they can be delivered with a magnetic mount for steel body guitars. To fix it, you can either use a double-stick tape or a putty recommended by your luthier. Either way, we recommend to check out the best sounding position before fixing it on the instrument.


For administrative/bureaucratic reasons orders from the UK or from Germany cannot be processed. I kindly ask for your understanding.
