Chrome Snake Oil Humbucker Pre-Wired Pickup Harness w/ Volume Control

  • Chrome Snake Oil Humbucker Pre-Wired Pickup Harness w/ Volume Control
  • Here's the "under the hood" view of these pickups. Two separate coils around parallel steel bars with a shared ferrite magnet between them.


This magnetic pickup harness combines some of our best-selling components into one handy pre-wired rig that you can easily include in your next guitar, cigar box guitar or other build! This harness features one of our Chrome "Snake Oil" mini humbucker pickups (our product number 54-008-01) rated at ~12.55kOhm, a high-quality 250KOhm Bourns volume pot (product # 50-010-01) and long-shaft Neutrik output jack (product #50-002-03). The lead between the pickup and pot is about 10 inches in length, as is the lead between the pot and the output jack.

The core of the pickup is a ferrite magnet, otherwise known as ceramic.

Here's blues man Larry McCray trying out a Highwood Guitars build by customer Jason Mills, which features the chrome version of one of these pickups:

Because we buy these parts in bulk and are set up for "assembly line" soldering, we are able to offer these Assembled-in-the-USA harnesses as a great low price. And we even offer even better prices for larger quantities!
