Sixtus "Slim" single coil pickups have an even smaller footprint than their humbucking brothers which have already earned its reputation amongst resonator guitar players. A "Sixtus Slim" feels comfortable from neck to bridge. Check out your sweet spot before fixing it permanently.

It is originally built to work with electric guitar strings. Optionally it can be adapted for acoustic phosphor bronze string sets.
Another optional feature is the magnetic mount for steel body resonator guitars.

This pickup has a single coil; it is remarkably silent but it might not be as silent as our humbucking models. Given its amazingly small size, the output is lower compared to common bulkier pickups.

Off the shelf, it is delivered without the embossed logo. The pickup is delivered without a connection jack.
For administrative/bureaucratic reasons orders from the UK or from Germany cannot be processed. I kindly ask for your understanding.

    Please note: The appearance of this handmade product is as such - handmade. Depending on your preferences and expectations regarding the look I suggest refraining from ordering.

  • 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 and I will refund the money.

    As mentioned before, this is a handmade product. Depending on your expectation you might dislike the optical appearence. Then please don't order. If your are not satisfied with the look once you have it in hands, I'm sure we can find a solution.

    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.
