Fletcher Singles Suitable for Fender®


With the glassy shimmer of the neck & the punchy twang of the bridge, its a versatile combination that endures.

My singles are scatter-wound with carefully selected wire directly onto hand finished Alnico magnets, as they were originally designed. These are mounted on laser cut fibreboard flatwork before being potted in wax. I use period correct cloth covered wire. The secret to the best sounding singles is the choice of wire and the winding technique of the coil.

Supplied as standard with Copper covered steel baseplate on the bridge and chrome plated, copper neck cover.

Flat or Vintage staggered bridge poles.

Neck & Bridge £40 each, Set £75

Pickups - Vintage


Alnico III


Not commonly seen on commercial pickups, these offer a warmer and more mellow vintage sound. With low string pull these will sustain beautifully. Great for mellow clean jazz tones and sultry country.

Neck 6.8k Bridge 7.2k


Alnico II


Thin wire on both neck and bridge gives a punchy, quick sound, while the Alnico 2 poles give the warmth and smoothness. Not as over powered as it appears, these are well in classic vintage twang territory, with smoother treble response and warm lows.


Neck 7.3k Bridge 8.5k


Alnico IV


Unusual in commercial pickups, Alnico 4 offers similar power to the usual Alnico 5, but with less of the highs. A slightly warmer vibe, giving better string to string balance, or perfect for the classic twang from an overly bright body.


Neck 7.2 Bridge 7.3


Alnico V


Used in pickups from the latter parts of the 50's to present. If you want that iconic twang, this is the pickup. Controllable bass, smooth mids and those ever present highs; accentuated by the steel baseplate of the bridge, and smoothed out by the cover on the neck.

Pickups - Modern

Coming Soon.....

Parallel Bang!

Tele Bridge sized Humbucker. Medium to Hot output

Alnico V (or II, III, IV)


High output pickups for a more modern sound. With more pronounced mids and less highs, these have a more attacking tone. An aggressive twang. Made with slightly longer magnets, a stronger magnetic field yields a higher inductance into the coil for a higher overall output.

Neck pickup comes uncovered to accommodate the extra girth. Bridge poles are recommended as flat/non-staggered.


Neck 8.0k Bridge 12.9k


Alnico V

Big Bang!

This is a pickup with more snarl than twang. Still voiced with that iconic sound but with large magnets and seriously overwound, this is a monster! Huge presence when clean and able to break up a tube amp at will! Would be a good match for a neck humbucker.


Bridge only 15.8k

Optional Extras

SeeThrough Neck

For a clearer tone from your covered neck pickup, use a Nickel-Silver cover instead of brass.

Nickel-Silver is more sonically 'see-through' than the normal brass & won't trim the top off your tone.

Plus £8

Overwound Underwound

All Vintage wind Pickups can be Overwound to Vintage-Hot wind for more presence and for brighter guitars or just for a bit more grunt and a more modern sound.

They can also be Underwound up to 10% for more clarity or for dark or hollow guitars.

No extra cost

Blended Magnets

If you find your unwound strings on the shrill side and pulling the strings, consider using a blend of magnets in the bridge pickup. With an Alnico 5 bridge pickups, using Alnico 2 or 3 in the GBE string position will smooth out the tones and add a little more warmth in your solos.

No extra cost.

Wooden Top

For an extra visual boost, the top flatwork for the bridge & uncovered neck pickup can be constructed from laminated sheets of real-wood veneer or occasionally from solid wood.

Popular woods include: Birdseye Maple, Flame maple, Rosewood, Zebrano & Mahogany. Enquire for choice and availability.

From £15 per pickup.
