Win a set of handwound Classic Alnico 5 Humbuckers.
I’m giving away a set of my handwound pickups to one luck person who’s joined The Creamery Facebook page that I’ve created. I’m planning to launch my new guitar, effects pedals & pickup store in April and once that is up and running, the first name pulled from the hat will win the pickups, regardless of where they are in the world.

The traditional tele neck sound – A clear bright tone with smooth mid frequencies and warm, rounded lows. The soft attack of the Alnico 2 poles is ideal for a clean tele sound. Nickel plated silver cover, vintage style cloth covered lead wire and wax potted – can be matched with a vintage tele bridge for a 50s tele sound and great for reverb.

Our take on the vintage tele bridge pickup of the early ’50s. Flat Alnico 2 polepieces pressed into handcut vulcanised flatwork. We scatterwind (hand feed) the 42AWG (46SWG) thin copper wire to build the coil to around 8.0k.
