The look and sound of foil pickups are back and more popular than ever! . These pickups look great and work well on any custom project with amazing results. Lowriders are also perfect when looking for a different sound from a guitar that you already may have. New pickups can open up new creative and sonic possibilities. Heck, build your own version of the infamous "Coodercaster"! Customers are also commenting on how great they are on their metal resonator guitars.
Lowrider pickups are a flat ferrite magnet, surface mount single coil pickup. They can also be mounted underneath with modifications (please see an instrument repair shop if you do not feel proficient in this step.) There are no pole pieces so string spacing is not an issue
Lowriders are only .34” tall, making these easy to surface mount on many guitars. No routing means only one very small hole for the pickup wire only. Pickups are underwound  coming in around 5k ohms(Don't let the reading fool you, these are full of vintage tone!). Character was important when designing these pickups. Each pickup has a vintage, hand made appearance.  I now include surface mount screws with each order and will gladly tap threads and send you height adjustment screws for undermounting on a pickguard if you prefer - just message me after ordering.

 - please see blueprint in photo section for exact dimensions.

* If you plan to surface mount the pickup, it is exactly .34" tall. Please allow a slight amount of allowance for string movement.

Pickups are grounded to a steel base plate with shielded wire, giving a surprisingly quiet and unique single coil . There is a youtube clip below and also my first test run here:

Please read customer reviews and find out what they have to say about these special pickups. Just like potato chips-bet you can't have just one!

*USPS is currently not shipping to the UK and other areas. I have no choice but to charge close to what is being charged by other carriers. I am sorry for the inconvenience. I never overcharge for shipping and will refund all shipping overages if the situation changes.
