The Fourcaster pickups are handcrafted with sand cast ALNICO 4 rod magnets and individually scatter wound with heavy formvar magnet wire to produce full and rich bell like tones without ever becoming harsh or strident. Alnico 4 reacts similar to Alnico 5 magnets that have been weakened, and because of this the Fourcasters have a warmer tone reminiscent of an old pickup that has naturally degaussed over many years.
Deluxe Version - The standard “Fourcaster” version is wound to vintage specs. The Fourcaster "Deluxe” version has an overwound bridge pickup for increased output and bass response.
RWRP - This option will give you noise canceling in the 2 and 4 positions when buying a set. Clockwise coils with North up magnets is our standard wind. RWRP have counter-clockwise coils with Sorth up magnets
Aged Poles - With this option the alnico rod magnets are patinaed which gives the pickups an aged look. When you choose aged poles the pickups also will come with aged mounting hardware (screws).
Covers - Choose between Parchment, Black or White covers. They have 2 1/16" (52.2 mm) spaced pole spread and are interchangeable with many other aftermarket covers.

I'm Chris and I love guitars. I was lucky enough to get my first guitar 27 years ago when I was 13 and I've been hooked ever since. As a youngster I immediately began tinkering with them and foolishly got myself in trouble one time for completely disassembling my Uncle's Strat. Oops!
Over the years I've had the opportunity to work a number of different jobs ranging from guitar teacher, to electronics manufacturing, to chef, to pickups. One thing that never changed during those years is my love for guitars and the ongoing pursuit of amazing guitar tone.
Today building pickups is my full time profession with myself as the Fatpups sole operator. Since 2015 I've been fortunate enough to have made thousands of pickups for people worldwide. I would be happy to hear from you so please let me know if there is anything I can do!
