The Starwood Humbucker is the latest installment to the Starwood Series which is our take on the more popular, traditional Humbucker & Single Coil pickups. Our lightly wound coils help produce more clarity, while the inductance is increased with the use of our proprietary steel pole screws, slugs, and magnet keepers. This version comes with a plated nickel silver cover.
The goal was to achieve a musical set of humbucking pickups. With smooth, clear highs in the bridge position, and a no-mud, full-bass tone in the neck position. The result is a workhorse pickup - clear, articulate and punchy - combining all of the best characteristics of a traditional humbucker.
The Humbucker Mount is a direct drop-in replacement for any standard sized humbuckers. This pickup ships with mounting screws and springs for adjustment. To learn more about the Humbucker Mount, check out the Tech Specs tab.
DC Resistance is not entirely an indicator of true pickup output, although it can be helpful.
Bridge: DCR - 8.3k / Inductance - 5.06H
Neck: DCR - 7.0k / Inductance - 3.69H
This pickup is shipped with 4-conductor wire but is ready for standard 2-conductor connection. The extra red and green wires come soldered together and taped off - to split coils, send these to ground.
Splitting coils works well with the Starwood Humbucker due to higher coil strength. Additionally, the 4-Conductor wire is convenient for custom switching i.e. pickups combined in series or parallel.
Humbucker Replacement:The Humbucker Mount is a direct drop in replacement for any standard sized humbuckers. The change in mount does not change the sound of the pickup.
