Tōkaidō Bullet

Back in the seventies Japanese technology came up with a new sort of humbucker, a pickup that has become a legend, and sought after for its cutting power, it’s subtlety and it’s unexpected power. The original was named after the ‘super’ decade it was conceived in, and this pickup has been transplanted into many an American LP style guitar for it’s clarity and bite … especially in the neck position.

My homage to that pickup is the ‘Tokaido Bullet’

Powered by a rough cast alnico 8 magnet for raw power, it has a slightly beefed up symmetrical PAF style wind for subtlety combined with ‘grunt’.
