THE Black-eyed susan single coil

The Black-Eyed Susan comes from the slang term for a six-shooter from the old West. Since they have 6 iron ‘slugs’ in them it seems like a good description. They are low output, very clear mid - high accentuated pickup. Lots of glorious ‘Quack’ for funk and blues riffing.

Neck 5.4 K, Middle 5.8 K, Bridge 6.4 K. 52 mm, 50.5 mm and 49.2 mm pole spacing.

Alnico 2 magnets for the high strings and Alnico 5 Magnets for the low strings give them a balanced attack from high to low and no high string harshness.

Cap choices are Vintage White/Mahogany, Vintage White/Oak, Candy Red, Natural Pine, Natural Mahogany, Rebel Grey, Powder Blue, Absinthe Green, Antique White, Blackend Pine and Classic Black Fibre.

Waxed cotton push back wire for the leads.
