Humbucker Pickup Parts Kit - Vintage Spec Humbucker Parts Kit - Vintage Spec

This kit is a little more restircted then out normal humbucker kit (where you can pretty much build anything you can dream up!) - and that's completely intentional. This kit is designed to replicate one of the original humbuckers, warts and all.

So please bare in mind, that this kit only comes with the long leg bases, 5-40 UNC bolts, 6 screw poles, 6 slugs, and a base to accept them (the holes in the base are threaded for the pole screws) - its also only available in the 49.2mm spacing, as correct for the period.

2 x "Magnetic Spacers" 2 x "Magnetic Spacers"

Magnetic spacers are a novel little idea, and turn up sporadically on production pickups every so often. Essentially, they replace the inert maple or plastic spacers either side of a Humbuckers poles to alter the tone, usually by making a pickup more aggressive.

Humbucker Cover - German Silver with no copper 1 x Humbucker Cover - Vintage/Traditional (No Copper)

These covers are identical to our "normal" humbucker covers, with one weird difference.

Where a "normal" modern cover is the "colour" electroplated onto a thin layer of copper, which has been electroplated onto the base material (simply to give a higher quality finish - copper being more reactive then either brass or nickel)

Prices From: £9.36 Inc VAT
Open Frame Humbucker Cover - German Silver / Nickel 1 x Humbucker Cover - "Black Top"

Standard style German Silver / Nickel humbucker covers, plated to the highest standard.

German silver (sometimes called Nickel (not to be confused with the plating )) is most often seen on very high spec Humbuckers, where the addition of a cover is intended to alter the final tone as little as possible. The properties of Nickel make it one of the best materials to achieve this.

Prices From: £8.98 Inc VAT
Open Frame Humbucker Cover - German Silver / Nickel 1 x Humbucker Cover - Curved Open Frame

Please be aware, these are a curved humbucker cover, and will no fit into standard humbucker routes or rings.

They are also brass (where we normally use Nickel for all of our humbucker covers by preference)

Prices From: £8.98 Inc VAT
Humbucker Cover - German Silver / Nickel 1 x Humbucker Cover - "Tall" Traditional

Where normal humbuckers are 16mm high, these German silver/Nickel models are actually 19mm tall - ideal for accommodating either taller magnets, or taller bobbins.

Humbucker Cover - German Silver / Nickel - 3x3 Screw Pole 1 x Humbucker Cover - 3x3

3x3 covers are a bit of an odd-ball part nowadays - they take inspiration from the Fender® Wide range humbucker that originally turned up in the Telecaster® Deluxe, but without some of the weirder idiosyncrasies (like them being much larger and a weird pole spacing!)

Prices From: £7.78 Inc VAT
Humbucker Cover Closed 1 x Humbucker Cover - Closed

These are what we call "close faced" humbucker covers - basically, a humbucker cover with no holes in there - so they'll cover a whatever poles you're fitting into the humbucker.

You'll occasionally see them called "Tony Iomi" covers, named after his signiture Gibson® pickup, or "Firebird® style" covers (the Gibson® Firebird® uses the same style of cover, all be it in Min Humbucker sizing.

Humbucker Cover - German Silver / Nickel - 11 Gate 1 x Humbucker Cover - 11 Gate

11 Gate Humbuckers kind of follow on from H gates - they too turned up on the Gretsch® guitars coming out of Korea (atleast prior to their switch over to Filtertron® sized pickups more recently) - and again, heavily inspired by TV Jones® designs.

Prices From: £7.78 Inc VAT
Axesrus - Humbucker Cover - 12 Hole 1 x Humbucker Cover - 12 Hole

These are "12 hole" humbucker covers - weirdly, not as common as you'd imagine, but certainly popuar among certain manufacturers nowadays.

Essentially, its the same principle as a traditional humbucker cover - but designed for pickups with 2 banks of pole screws (whilst not exclusively true anymore, think DiMarzio® and their hex head poles) - 12 holes that will line up with 12 pole, giving a great, modern look to a pickup.

Prices From: £7.78 Inc VAT
Humbucker Cover - German Silver / Nickel - H Gate 1 x Humbucker Cover - H Gate

H gate covers have proven popular in recent years when they've turned up on the full sized Humbuckers fitted to the Gretsch® Electromatic series coming out of Korea. Obviously taking heavy inspiration from the Filtertron® pickups that turn up in that "semi mini" Humbucker size, and leaning on the style made popular by TV jones®- they're a nice part for making a pickup look a little more old fashioned then it maybe would with other styles of cover.

Prices From: £7.78 Inc VAT
Humbucker Cover - German Silver / Nickel 1 x Humbucker Cover - Traditional

These are what you’d probably call “standard” humbuckers covers – in that they have 6 holes down one side to accommodate the pole screws that are poking up through the top – and I think it’s safe to say it’s the look we think of when we talk about covered humbuckers – that Honey burst Gibson® Les Paul®, immaculately polished, all the chrome** hardware sparkling under the lights, and as a final touch of call, covered humbuckers! Beautiful!
