THE FAT TONEY SET
The Fat Toney set are an original creation we did in conjunction with Adelaide guitarist, Stefan Hauk. A complete Alnico II set for wide open, smoky tones that are never harsh or shrill at any volume. This set sound big and musical, incorporating a steel baseplate on the bridge pickup for complex, mid rich, fat tones. Recommended for fans of Mayer, SRV and Blackmore.

Our take on Mr. Gilmour’s classic Alnico V set in his original black guitar. The Neck and middle pickups deliver nuance and shimmer, just like on the albums. They are based on the original '69/70 specs and use Plain Enamel wire. The bridge is based on the original unit made in the 70s and uses different wire gauge for increased power and output. Refined over the past five years, these will give you that "off the record" tone.

JJ's Vintage Models
All of our Vintage models are period correct, accurate reproductions of the original pickups. We've been rewinding and repairing original examples for a while. The secrets those pickups have revealed are factored into our production process for authentic vintage tone. For these vintage examples, we use only Elektrisola coil wire in Formvar and Plain Enamel, and we have our magnets custom made for us. Each of our vintage spec pickups are lightly potted and fitted with genuine Gavitt cloth wire, screws, springs/tubing and covers of your choice. Available in RWRP middle as standard, we can change that on request.
