The GittyBucker Flat-Mount Cigar Box Guitar Humbucker - Made in the USA!
The easiest top-mounted cigar box guitar pickup! No routing. No cutting. Just attach to the top of your cigar box guitar. The humbucker design makes it quieter than single coil pickups.
Hand-wound in the USA, for cigar box guitar builders BY A CIGAR BOX GUITAR BUILDER!
These pickups feature the same design as our popular premium line of WickedBucker pickups, each and every GittyBucker is hand-wound by master builder and pickup-winding guru Marty Tauber, based on the design used by CBG legend Dan Sleep and first created by Elmar Zeilhofer. Elmar still hand-crafts his Original Flatpups in Austria where he lives - you can learn more about them here.
Add a convenient mounting ring/cover and screw this pickup directly to the soundboard of your instrument with no cutting or other modifications needed. The covers are laser-cut from night light arctic birch plywood, and when installed stand just 0.20 inches high.
Basic usage info: the bar magnet should be perpendicular to the strings, not in parallel with them. The red wire is positive and the black is ground. Do not try to remove the clear tape that covers the pickup, as this will pull off the tiny wire windings and probably ruin it. Try to keep the pickup top around 1/4-inch from the strings (closer=louder/hotter, further=quieter).
