This pickup is extraordinary - twice! Only 5mm low and it can cover a maximum string spacing of 19cm! - An ideal extra wide, flat add-on humbucker pickup for the subs of harp guitars or as a surface mount pickup for acoustic basses. Of course, it only works for magnetic strings.


To fix it permanently, you can use double-sided mounting tape or putty recommended by your luthier.Second photo by courtesy of

    Please note: Depending on your preferences and expectations regarding the look I suggest to refrain from ordering. This is no industrial product. It is handmade and you might dislike its optical appearence.

  • All pickups are tested before leaving. Please check the pickup before mounting it. If it doesn't work as you expect it, you can send it back on your account and I will refund the money that you paid for it.

    If it stops working during a period of three (3) years from the date of delivery, you can return it to me and I return the money you paid for it, except the pickup broke due to improper use, e.g. by tearing out the connection wires.
