Like a mini humbucker you get two thin narrow bobbins, packed with hand-wound wire coils.

One with a mini bar magnet, the other with yet another bar magnet!

Firebirds are not designed like a mini or regular humbucker and sounds like neither.

Slightly mismatched coils produce a bright snappy tone with an emphasis on the upper mids and treble. 

Shielded two wire output as standard. See below for Options.

FletcherBirds are Modern size and might not fit well within vintage guitars:

Dimensions - 68mm(L - 80mm including mounts) x 28mm (W) x 16.5mm ( H - 26mm including mounts)

Overwound Underwound

All Vintage wind AWG43 pickups can be overwound by 5% to Vintage-Hot for a more edgy, gritty sound. (AWG 42 vintage spec fills the bobbin, so can be wound no more).

All pickups can be underwound by up to 10% for a cleaner, clearer vibe, recommended on semi/hollow bodies or bodies with an overly dark tone.

Overwound recommended for bright bodies, or just more dirt! Contact me directly to discuss this option.
