GTx-hmb GoldFoil

Humbucking Gold Foil® Replacement Pickup
Made to fit in a standard humbucker route


Goldfoil pickups are all the rage these days, but most of them don't live up to their reputation. Many were designed strictly on the cheap with the focus on aesthetics, but with little concern for tone. However, a small handful of them accidentally turned out to be quite good. This Tokyo Sound Lab Goldfoil is one of them. I have been repairing vintage ones for many years. At long last I have taken steps to recreate them in a humbucker format. The GTx, unlike the DeArmond Goldfoil, was a relatively low wind double coil humbucker giving a a nice, warm, clean tone. As always, I can custom wind it to much higher gain if you desire. In recreating this, I went to great lengths to get this right. I had the vintage magnet analyzed and custom made to my specs, and I wind the coil as it was done originally in a paper "air coil". This one is designed to drop right into your standard humbucker route.
