As they were made in '59, the "Texas Bluesman" pickups are handcrafted with larger diameter alnico 5 pole pieces, and the coils are scatter wound with heavy build magnet wire. The larger diameter rod magnets give these pickups lots of spank and a little more bite. The middle pickup is reversed for humbucking in the 2 and 4 positions, and the bridge pickup is overwound for more bass and increased output...
Magnet Stagger - Choose between vintage staggered pole pieces or flat poles (non-staggered)
RWRP - This option will give you noise canceling in the 2 and 4 positions when buying a set of 3. The standard wind is counterclockwise windings with South up magnets. RWRP has clockwise windings with North up magnets. Any position pickup can be ordered individually with RWRP or standard.
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 got my first guitar 25 years ago when I was 13 and I've been hooked ever since. As a youngster I began tinkering with them right away, and even got in trouble for completely disassembling my Uncle's Strat!
After working many different jobs over the years ranging from guitar teacher to electronics manufacturing one thing has remained the same - I have not lost my passion for amazing guitar tone, and I never will!
