The frame of this 5mm low profile humbucker is a window for creative custom design: Fancy tortoise patterns, elegant brass or even textiles. You can also put your personal inlay, maybe a photo? The frame has a transparent layer to protect the surface of the inlay.

The shielded cable leaves downwards and requires a tiny hole in the top to pass it through. Upon request, the cable can leave the pickup either to the left side or to the right. The pickup can be fixed on the top of the guitar by two countersunk head screws (not included). We recommend to check out the best sounding position before fixing it permanentely on the instrument.

In case you use electric guitar strings on your resonator guitar, this pickup is an alternative to our Sixtus resonator pickup.


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