UK guitar designer and pickup guru Alan Entwistle has over 30 years of research and experience of hand making custom pickups. His CV includes heading up Hohner’s UK based Custom Shop where he designed models including the JT60, Blond, Black Widow and Revelation. More recently he has designed guitars for Alden and Tanglewood and his electronic circuit wizardry is being incorporated into selected Burns models.
The AS57 is a traditional vintage alnico single coil with sparkling highs, warm mids and a well defined low end. Traditional materials are used with AlNiCo pole pieces, fibre board bobbin and enamel coated winding wire which is scatter-wound direct to the core. This attention to materials and construction detail ensures authentic vintage tone. The middle pickup is reverse wound so that hum is cancelled when used in combination with either the neck or bridge pickups.
Choice of Bridge, Middle or Neck. Sets available.
*Available with choice of pickup covers, White, Black or Cream
The pickup is unboxed and supplied with mounting screws and springs.
