Horseshoe pups


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know about these pups? There is a bloke that I know that might swap some of his bits and pieces if I can build on of these. Unfortunately I can't really find any info on them.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

from what i remmber in this guitar book i had. it said they actually had a horseshoe shaped magnet in them.. [not the same size of course] and that one side was positive one was negative and somewhere in the middle was somewhere in the middle. loosely quoted from melvn hiscocks book build your own electric guitar.

It's two horseshoe magnets....

I can't remember the polarities but I think they're mounted so they oppose each other....

inside is a normal single coil PU

So it's pretty much the same as your normal single except with a big magnet

at least that's what I gather...I was tring to track one down for my guitar...they're tough to find

the tough part would be finding decent magnets...

I'd love a humbucker version...that'd be a riot....especially a really hot one :-)
