MODEL S  Model S can be can be wound for jangle to driving blues and anything in between. In fact if you consider the variation in specification from the early hand wound pickups through to the modern machine wound versions there is a fair range of values:   1954 / 55		6.82k 1956 / 57		6.0k 1958 / 1960		6.2k 1961 / 62		6.2k 1963 / 64		6.3k 1965 / 67		6.8k  Prior to 1965, this type of pickup was hand wound.  Hand winding really is the best approach for this style of pickup creating a clarity and detailed tone that is rarely achieved when machine wound. I generally produce Model S with flat (non staggered) poles) as this seems to work well with modern string gauges however either traditional stagger or customised staggers are availble. All magnets are taped to prevent shorting to the coil and I fit thicker lead wires between the actual coils and eyelets instead of soldering the coil wire directly which is easily damaged and a common cause of failed pickups.  The picture shows a set of three with a steel plate fitted to the underside of the bridge pickup. The plate can be fitted to modify the tone slightly  (more lows) or to produce the Tele voiced Stelley pickup which features a hotter winding
MODEL T/B Drop in replacement for T-style guitars available with a variety of windingstyles  and magnet types all with a transparency of tone that lets the character of the guitar shine through. The base model has flat Alnico 5 poles, steel base plate and a winding of approximately 7.6k. All of these elements can be vairied to mimic the variations of this style of pickup produced throughout the years. Vintage style cloth covered connection leads are available or the standard option of PU covered leads and connection between the eyelets and coil is via the same method used on my Model S pickups to reduce the chance of accidental damage and the slug magnets are similarly insulated from the coil to eliminate shorting. To prevent squealing I glue the steel base plates into position but these can be supplied loose if preferred.
MODEL T/N Drop in replacement for T-style neck pickups available with a variety of windingstyles  and magnet types, this pickup can be supplied with a separate earth lead to facilitate 4 way switching if required. Alnico 5 poles as standard and wound to approximately 7.2k. The winding and magnets can be adjusted to suit your requirements. As with Model T/M, vintage style cloth covered connection leads are available and connection between the eyelts and coil is via the same method used on my Model S pickups to reduce the chance of accidental damage and the slug magnets are similarly insulated from the coil to eliminate shorting.
TP90

The TP90 is a pickup that I developed a long time ago as a drop in replacement for standard T-style bridge pickups. Borrowing the magnet arrangement

from P90 pickups, the TP90 is fitted with stnadard humbucker/P90 pole screws and the coil sized appropriately to get as close as can be reasonably

acheived in this format to a P90 tone.

DC resistance as standard is 7.8k but it is possible to produce higher output versions from the

same base construction. Coil taps can be also included; I usually add a boost coil section to the

main coil which produces a thicker sound with a moderate lift in output.

Fitted with either shielded or individual cloth covered connection leads.

A neck version is available (TP90-N)

T-BUCKER 1 The original T-Bucker, two three pole coils alongside each other for hum free T-style tones. Despite the high DC resistance of this pickup, the tone produced is what you would expect from a “regular” T style pickup. A nice pickup for blues and twang and is a drop in replacement for conventional pickups. Alnico 5 as standard and supplied with a two core shielded cable. These pickups are handed - tell me if you have a right hand or left hand guitar.
