Want to have that great Fender style Wide Range tone in a guitar that does not have the larger WRHB route? This is wound to the same specs as my full sized WRHB replacement . this pickup will work great in your Blacktop, or guitar which has a Gibson sized route. They sound just the same as the old Fender Wide Range Humbucker. I hand wound them to true vintage WR specs with threaded rod magnets, or to your desired specs. I hear Some think you can not wind the smaller bobbins it the higher vintage resistance that the WRHB requires, but I guess I am just very skilled. I use the correct #42 wire and can easily wind them up to vintage spec. Over the years I have repaired many originals, and have reworked well over a hundred of the reissues to vintage specs, so I am very familiar with how these were made and how they SHOULD sound.

Here is a magazine article I collaborated on this article on how the Reissue differs from the original Wide Range pickup
Here are a couple reworks I did for Lee.
    Proto Type 2.0 Revoiced WRHB
    Proto Type 1

Here is a cool example where I installed Hum-WR in a Squire Jaguar. It really worked out well converting it to a Jaguar style Jazzblaster. I would next love to get my hands on one of these Vintage Modified TeleĀ® Custom it really makes an affordable Tele Deluxe
