Vintage 1962 Kay Kleenex Box pickup. This is from a Swingmaster model but several other models used them. Please note, there are two different mounting configurations of these pickups. My Barney Kessel uses the same pickup except the mounting bar has springs and adjustment threads. The bar can be swapped out as long as the pole spacing is the same. This is a bridge pickup (50mm pole spacing). Reads 12.04k on my ohmmeter (note that your ohmmeter may read slightly different from mine). The pickup cover has cracks around the cover screws as well as some around the pole pieces (please see photos). Has scratches and wear appropriate for a 60 year old guitar that has been played throughout its life. In vintage used condition.

Photos are a major part of the description. Please view the photos carefully for cosmetic condition as well as anything else I may not have described here.  Please ask any questions you need to.

This item is also for sale on another site. I reserve the right to end this listing at any time. Although very unlikely, it is possible that this item could sell on both sites before the second listing can be taken down. In that case, the earliest sale will prevail and the later sale will be cancelled.
