Lollar Pickups has announced the release of a Supro-style string through steel guitar pickup. The pickup features Alnico 5 magnets, dual split coil humbucking construction with adjustable poles. The pickup requires a small route 1/8″ deep or it can be surface mounted on top of a pickguard. For guitars with taller bridges, shims are available to raise the pickup.
From the Lollar Pickups Website:
This is an exact copy of the Supro/ Valco/ National string through steel guitar pickup as used on the “Coodercaster.” The pickup is humbucking yet it sounds exactly like a single coil. Output is remarkably high yet it has all of the clarity of a low output pickup. The steel plate that goes over the strings spreads the magnetic field to surround the strings. This increases the pickup’s sensitivity and reduces magnetic pull on the strings which increases sustain.
