Gold Snake Oil Humbucker Pre-Wired Pickup Harness with Volume & Tone Control
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 Gold "Snake Oil" mini humbucker pickups (our product number 54-008-01) rated at ~11.5kOhms, two high-quality 250KOhm Bourns potentiometers for volume and tone (product # 50-010-01) and long-shaft Neutrik output jack (product #50-002-03). The tone pot has been fitted with one of our .033 capacitors (Product # 50-040-01). 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 Lead between the volume and tone pots is approximately 6 inches.
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:
The core of the pickup is a ferrite magnet, otherwise known as ceramic.
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!
