Blue Streak

This pickup is my homage to the seventies. Big flares, big riffs, glitter and glam … and HUGE guitar sounds, courtesy of the newfangled ‘replacement pickups’ that were coming over from America.

The pickup design that launched the ‘New Wave of British Heavy Metal or NWOBHM.


The ceramic magnet gives awesome grunt (13k resistance bridge, 9.5k neck)  but a warmth and sweetness that is almost ‘vintage.’Available in: 52 or 50mm spacing. With square or triangular feet. Hex pole pieces are in available in black only, but bobbins are available in black, zebra, reversed zebra, double cream as standard options.

*Pictured - Hot pink custom bobbin option.
