Celebrating 20 years of Hufschmid humbuckers!
 
Since 1998, my guitars are fitted with handmade passive pickups for which I've entirely designed the exterior looks. These humbuckers are technically unique and are individually handcrafted for me by the legend himself Kent Armstrong. All of my pickups are custom wound to fit the player's needs. Solder tags for the connexions and threaded inserts in the wings are used for ulimate longevity!

The unique appearance of the pickups comes from part of the process which creates them - the units are resin cast, eliminating the need for any form of cover. The humbuckers are built in a rubber mold into which the magnets and coils are inserted, a special aerospace grade resin is then pored over the entire thing, resulting in a perfectly sealed and shielded pickup.

My signature '3D blue carbon fiber' electric guitar control cavity interior design is my own design/creation and is protected by copyright:

All my current guitars are fitted with a rare 'new old stock' Russian military aluminium foil paper-in-oil 0.022uF 'K40Y-90' or 0.025uF paper-in-wax capacitor!
