New Wide Range/Thinline Humbucker Replacement Pickups from The Creamery. Direct replacements for reissue fender Wide Range/Thinline Humbucker pickups.
Win a set of handwound Classic Alnico 5 Humbuckers.
I’m giving away a set of my handwound pickups to one luck person who’s joined The Creamery Facebook page that I’ve created. I’m planning to launch my new guitar, effects pedals & pickup store in April and once that is up and running, the first name pulled from the hat will win the pickups, regardless of where they are in the world.
Not the best looking guitar in town due to the three pickup configuration and cream P90 covers (which I’m changing to black) but the sounds you can coax from this guitar are just sweet. The heavier gauge strings, coupled with a one piece heavy mahogany body, rosewood fingerboard and fatter sounding P90 pickups rather than tele/strat types give this guitar a real warmth.
A vintage sound, rich and full of warmth with great harmonics. A real creamier sound when overdriven. Chrome plated nicker cover & vintage braided hookup wire.

Just got the promo cards back from the printers. It’s all coming together. Recoded most of the soundfiles for both guitars & pickups. Just got to finish off the final versions of the Fuzz and tremolo pedals, record the tones and get them on the site. Completion of the online store is the priority then its time to roll up my sleeves and get back to work – those pickups don’t wind themselves.
The first in a series of 6 guitars carved from a 30yr old pine. Introducing No.1 – Based on the famous Jazzmaster shape. 2 Custom, scatterwound humbuckers with chrome plated nickel H-covers. Gotoh bridge & stoptail. 1 tone, 1 volume, 3 way switching. CTS pots & vintage capacitor. Body treated with nothing more then Danish oil.
There was just something about it. When tapped it had that ‘ring’, that sound that was far more than the usual dull thud you get with many woods. Maybe its the many blocks of birch laminated together under pressure. Maybe its the 40mm thickness. Maybe, maybe, maybe. One thing’s for sure – it sounds good.
The traditional tele neck sound – A clear bright tone with smooth mid frequencies and warm, rounded lows. The soft attack of the Alnico 2 poles is ideal for a clean tele sound. Nickel plated silver cover, vintage style cloth covered lead wire and wax potted – can be matched with a vintage tele bridge for a 50s tele sound and great for reverb.
More details and soundfiles when the site goes live.
