Wide Range Humbucker Modification
One of my favorite pickups is the WRHB. The reissues are OK pickups but they are just run of the mill humbuckers. They can be so much more.
I now offer only one modification using my custom & vintage correct bobbins.
- You send me your pickup. I dismantle it.
- I wind my custom, vintage correct bobbins, to vintage wind specs using plain enamel wire.
- I use a combination of threaded Alnico magnets and custom cut Alnico V magnets.
- I insert a vintage correct ‘reflector plate’ between the bobbin and the baseplate.
The result is a beautiful, harmonically rich, pickup that is very true to the ’71 vintage WRHB but at a fraction of the cost.
