Creamery Replacement Rickenbacker® Style Pickups

Vintage, Modern & Custom Replacement Ric®, Rickenbacker® & Toaster® Style Pickups

Creamery Custom Replacement Ric®, Rickenbacker® & Toaster® Style Pickups

From the classic bright, attacking jangly sounds to fatter, crunchier & humbucker (humbucking) designs I've tried to create Ric® & Toaster® style pickups & sets that chime with certain sounds & periods in music. I can also make them custom to you & your style of play - If that means over/underwinding a little, different outputs, different magnet types etc etc then no problem, it can be done - they're your pickups, for your guitar.

Custom, Handwound Replacement Ric® Rickenbacker® & Toaster® Style Pickups from The Creamery.

I'm currently building a whole new website with all the new pickup designs but until the new site goes live, if you'd like a set of replacement Ric® style pickups for your Rickenbacker guitar, then please get in touch - All the parts have been custom manufactured to my own specifications and all the pickups in my new Ric® range are direct drop-in replacements - no modifications necessary.

Have a look at some of the designs in the new Creamery Custom Replacement Ric®, Rickenbacker® & Toaster® Style Pickups Range below:

Creamery Custom Handwound Vintage 1 (Nocaster) Alnico 3 Telecaster Pickups

The Vintage 'Nocaster' Bridge Tone

My handwound take on the vintage Telecaster (Nocaster) bridge pickup of the early '50s. Flat Alnico 3 polepieces pressed into handcut vulcanised flatwork. I scatterwind (hand feed) the 42AWG (46SWG) thin copper wire to build the coil to around 7.3k. A traditional Telecaster bridge pickup sound; crisp and clear with a bright tone yet warm & round tone due to the Alnico 3 poles.

Vintage cloth pushback hookup wire, wax potted with zinc coated steel baseplate and vintage style string coil protection make this my homage to the early Telecaster twang. A great Tele bridge pickup sound.

Creamery Custom Handwound Vintage 1 (Nocaster) Alnico 3 Telecaster Neck Pickup

The Vintage 'Nocaster' Neck Tone

The traditional Telecaster neck pickup sound - A clear bright tone with smooth mid frequencies and warm, rounded lows. The soft attack of the Alnico 3 poles is ideal for a clean Telecaster sound.

Unpolished nickel plated cover, vintage style cloth covered lead wire and wax potted - match it with the vintage Telecaster bridge pickup for that 50s Telecaster sound.

Custom Replacement 3-Hole Mount/Screw Humbuckers for your Fender® Guitar

Custom Handwound Replacement Humbuckers for your 3-Hole Mount/Screw Pawn Shop, Select or Modern Player Guitar

Creamery Custom Handwound Replacement Humbuckers for your 3-Hole Mount Pawn Shop, Select or Modern Player Guitar

Creamery Custom Handwound Replacement Humbuckers for your 3-Hole/Screw Mount Pawn Shop, Select or Modern Player Guitar

I'm often asked if I can make replacement humbuckers for the modern Fender® Enforcer™ or Atomic™ Humbuckeers that feature in their Pawn Shop, Select & Modern Player Series. Whilst loving their guitar, the player may need something a little clearer, lower output or even a different design altogether.

The challenge for them is to find replacement humbuckers that fit the 3-hole/screw mounting rings or scratchplate Fender® utilise to make adjusting the pickups height and angle a little easier.

With this in mind I've had baseplates custom manufactured to my own thin nickel silver specifications that allow you to replace your Fender® Enforcer™ or Atomic™ Humbuckers with a custom handwound design from my range.

All my Humbucker sized Pickups can now be 3-Hole/Screw

All my replacement humbuckers, custom humbuckers & Wide Range designs can now be ordered with the 3-hole/screw mounting required to be a direct drop-in replacement.

If you'd like me to make a custom replacement humbucker for your Fender® Pawn Shop, Select or Modern Player guitar then just get in touch.

Hofner 511B 'Violin' Bass Staple Pickups Repair & Rewind

Hofner 511B Nova-Sonic Violin Bass Staple Pickups Repair & Rewind

Rewinding & Repairing Vintage Hofner 511B Nova-Sonic Violin Bass Staple Pickups

I do like these old Hofner 511B 'Staple' pickups. Launched in the early '60s and made in both 6-String & 4-String versions they're essentially a humbucker but rather than have steel slugs hidden under the cover in the usual, standard Humbucker design, Hofner made these with steel 'staples'. These ferrous poles work in the same way, the difference being they're not hidden away under the cover, resulting in a clearer, more defined tone. They're also mini-humbucker size giving a more focussed, clear tone.

Hofner Staple Pickups - Repair & Rewind

I've repaired & rewound a good number of these and one of the main issues is internal corrosion. Whether its the actual wire or flux used, deep inside the coil the actual start 'hook up' wire can corrode which, when leeching into the thin insulated copper wire, can effectively kill the pickup - making a rewind the only option left. I do try and repair them to as close as vintage specification and output as possible but it is better ti use some modern materials that will give the repaired & rewound pickup longevity.

Rewinding & Repairing Vintage Hofner 511B Nova-Sonic Violin Bass Staple Pickups

Hofner Staple Pickup Rewind - Bridge & Neck Positions

Both bridge & Neck positions can have very similar outputs so a repair & rewind gives the opportunity to make more of a calibrated set, with good volume balance as you switch through the positions. A slightly underwound neck pickup helps to give better balance as its a naturally warmer, more resonant position so by under winding, or overwinding the bridge a little a good 'volume' balance can be achieved.

Rewinding an old Hofner 511B Nova-Sonic Staple Humbucker

The coil wire used in the originals were somewhere between 43AWG & 44AWG (Wire Gauge) so there's always a choice which to use with a modern rewind. I prefer to use the slightly thicker 43AWG just so there's a little less emphasis on the mid-range that more wraps of thinner coil wire can produce.

Anyway, if you're a Beatles fan you can hear these rewinds in action at the famous Cavern Club in Liverpool where the house tribute band are playing them in their Violin Bass guitars.

Upgrading P90 Pickups - Looking for something different?

Replacing Standard P90 Pickups with Custom Handwound Replacements

Creamery Classic '57 P90 Pickups

Creamery Classic '57 P90 Pickups

Creamery Custom Handwound Classic '57 P90 Pickups

Magnets: Alnico 5
Poles: Nickel plated steel slotted Fillister head screws
Coil Wire: 42AWG Plain Enamel
Lead Wire: Vintage Braided
Bridge 8.3k
Neck 7.5k

Dogear or Soapbar

A higher output than my Classic '53 giving that large fat P90 full-bodied drive & tone yet still keeping the warmth with real attack, grunt and definition. A great lead P90 sound for a bridge position pickup, sweet warmth in the neck. Single conductor, braided shield lead wire. Available in black or cream P90 pickup covers, dog-ear or soapbar.

Creamery Classic '53 P90 Pickups

Creamery Classic '53 P90 Pickups

Creamery Custom Handwound Classic '53 P90 Pickups

Magnets: Alnico 2, 3, 4 or 5
Poles: Nickel plated steel slotted Fillister head screws
Coil Wire: 42AWG Plain Enamel
Lead Wire: Vintage Cloth Pushback or Braided
Bridge 7.5k
Neck 7.1k

Dogear or Soapbar

A lower vintage output, less attacking pickup but with a wide dynamic range. This is my brighter P90 similar to those old pickups of the early '50s. Fatter in tone than a single coil. Still with that fat P90 sound, great for warm clean tones part way between a single-coil and humbucker the Classic '53 P90 pickup won't drive an amp as much as my Classic '57 P90. The Alnico 2 being a slightly weaker magnet than the 4 or 5, gives a warmer, more vintage style tone. A great P90 pickup for those jazzier sounds. Alnico 4 is a little clearer than the Alnico 2 but ever so slightly warmer than the Alnico 5. The Alnico 5 magnets give a great bright P90 single-coil attack.

For a set I'd reccommend an Alnico 2 in the Bridge & Alnico 4 or 5 in the Neck.

Single conductor, braided shield lead. Available in black or cream P90 pickup covers, dog-ear or soapbar.

Custom P90 Pickup Designs

Often I'm contacted by guitarists who do want something more form a P90 but just love the vintage look & shape of the Soapbar or Dog-ear P90 pickup. Its with this in mind that I've designed a number of custom pickups to fit the standard P90 size that require no modifications to your guitar at all. Sometimes, the new pickup can look pretty much like a P90 though underneath, its a whole different pickup. Have a look.

Creamery Telecaster Sized P90 Bridge & Neck Pickups

Creamery Custom Handwound Replacement Telecaster Sized P90 Pickups

Introducing the Custom Tele-90 Bridge & Neck Pickups

Creamery Custom Handwound Replacement Tele Telecaster Sized Tele-90 P90 Pickups

A P90 design to fit a Tele Bridge Pickup

Fat, grittier tones from your Tele Bridge & Neck position whilst still keeping some of that classic Tele twang

Magnet: Custom Alnico 5

Poles: Slotted Steel Filister Head P90 Screw

Polarity: South Up bridge / North Up Neck

Coil Wire: 43AWG Plain Enamel

Lead Wire: Vintage Cloth Pushback

Bridge Output: 12.0k

Neck Output: 8.6k

Bridge Baseplate: Copper Plated Steel

Balanced/Calibrated Telecaster Sized P90 Bridge & Neck Pickup Set

A P90 design in a standard Telecaster Bridge & Neck sized set. The Creamery Telecaster sized P90 pickups house two custom sized unpolished Alnico 5 magnets, steel screws and fat Handwound 43AWG coils. Fat single-coil tones still with clarity, presence & a defined voice. Get the grit of a P90 in a standard Telecaster Bridge & Neck size. Great fat, rounded clean tones.

The geometry of the standard Tele Bridge & Neck Pickup size as opposed to a standard P90 means there will always be a slight difference in tone between the two pickups as the coils will be slightly narower - Its for this reason I don't call these "true" P90s although I've voiced these pickups to have more of that grittier P90 edge. A higher output, fat single-coil tone in a standard Tele Bridge & Neck sized pickup set.

Creamery Custom Handwound Replacement Tele Telecaster Sized Tele-90 P90 Bridge Pickup

Tele-90 Bridge & Neck available in Alnico 5 and Double-Thickness Alnico 5 Options

I've had two designs of magnet custom made for these pickups, a standard option Alnico 5 (described above) and a double-thickness Alnico 5 for a stronger, more attacking, slightly brighter but a little less resonant tone - for a more modern take on my Tele-90 bridge.

Please Note: The Tele-90 bridge is about 2-3mm taller with the standard Alnico 5 Magnets and about 7mm taller than a standard Tele Bridge pickup with the Double-Thickness Alnico 5 magnets and whilst it will fit many cavities, if you have a shallow bridge cavity, please check. The total height of the pickup with pole screws is 19mm or 24mm whereas a standard Tele bridge is around 17-18mm. You'll need a minimum cavity space of at least about 13mm to 17mm to fit the pickup.

The Tele-90 neck with either magnet options will fit into a standard Tele neck cavity as a direct drop-in replacement.

Creamery Custom Handwound Replacement Tele Telecaster Sized Tele-90 P90 Neck Pickup

You can select the Tele-90 Neck to be RW/RP for hum-cancelling in the middle position. Due to the design, the pickup has no cover and as its a fat coil, I use black tape wrapped around the coil to protect it.

Pole Magnets: Alnico 2 or 5 Bar Blade Magnets
Coil Wire: 43AWG Plain Enamel
Lead Wire: Vintage Cloth Pushback or Braided
Bridge 12.8k
Neck 10.7k

Brighter, Crunchier P90 Soapbar Sized Humbucker Pickup

A dual blade magnet humbucker pickup inside a P90 that requires no modifications to your guitar at all. My P90 sized Humbuckers even look like a P90 - Once installed, no-one will spot the difference until you plug in and play.

Great string definition & clarity due to the dual blade magnets. More of a crunchy "Doubled up" hum-cancelling tone than the fat single coil voice of my classic P90, these new P90 sized dual blade Humbucker Pickups give a rich, crunchy, bright & biting attack.

All the depth of a humbucker with the sparkle of a single coil. The two, thin 43awg coils help give a clear, yet slightly warmer mid-range which balances the brighter frequencies of this versatile design.

Creamery Custom Handwound Replacement P90 Sized Humbucker Pickups

Creamery Custom Handwound Replacement P90 Sized Dual Blade Humbucker Pickup Set

I use the thinner 43AWG coil wire on this design which means the actual perceived volume will be lower than the high output reading would suggest, namely around 9.5k Bridge & 8.3k Neck respectively. There are a few misconceptions about using thinner gauge wire to achieve a higher output and I'm currently writing a blog post about it.

P90 Sized 'Fat' Humbucker

P90 Sized Fat Humbucker

Pole Magnets: Alnico 5
Coil Wire: 43AWG Plain Enamel
Lead Wire: Braided
Bridge 11.0k
Neck 9.8k

More of a warmer, PAF style P90 sized Humbucker

A bar magnet style humbucker pickup inside a P90 that requires no modifications to your guitar at all. Its essentially the standard humbucker design of two coils with bar magnet and steel pole screws. The slight difference, other than the size & look, is that I use a series of 5 magnets designed to fit around the 2 central fixing screws. I do this to make the pickup a completely direct drop-in replacement.

Unlike other P90-sized PAF style humbuckers, there's no need to drill new mounting holes into the body of your guitar with mine. No modifications necessary to your guitar.

More of a warmer, classic humbucker tone than my 12-pole design, slightly brighter and more focused as I allow both rows of pole screws through the custom made covers.

Creamery Custom Handwound Replacement P90 Sized Fat Humbucker Pickups

Creamery Custom Handwound Replacement P90 Sized Fat Humbucker Pickups

I use the thinner 43AWG coil wire on this design which means the actual perceived volume will be lower than the high output would suggest, namely around 8.8k Bridge & 7.8k Neck respectively - The slightly higher output compensates for the slightly taller, thinner coils.

Creamery Custom Handwound Replacement P90 Dogear Sized Humbucker Pickups

P90 Sized Fat Bridge Humbucker - Custom Designed for P90 Dogear

Pole Magnets: Alnico 2, 3, 4 or 5
Coil Wire: 42AWG Plain Enamel
Lead Wire: Vintage Braided or Modern 4-Way
Bridge 8.4k

More of a warmer, PAF style P90 Dogear sized Bridge Humbucker

A bar magnet PAF style bridge humbucker pickup inside a P90 Dogear that requires no modifications to your guitar at all. Its essentially the standard humbucker design of two coils with bar magnet and steel pole and/or screws. A completely direct drop-in replacement with your choice of Alnico 2, 3, 4 or 5 magnets.

Warmer, classic humbucker tones with the option of more traditional 6 visible pole screws and hidden steel slugs under the cover or 12 visible pole screws. P90 Dogear covers, although made of plastic, are quite thick meaning the hidden steel slugs are just that little bit further away from the strings whereas the full set adjustable pole screw option means all 12 pole screws can be adjusted to suit your neck radius or to dial in individual strings for emphasis. I offer both these options as some customers prefer the more vintage humbucker 'look' whereas others want more clarity & definition.

A great replacement humbucker for standard P90 Dogear Bridge Pickups and if you'd like a PAF style replacement humbucker for your Les Paul Jnr Guitar.

Hofner President 'Air Coil' Pickup Repair & Rewind

Repairing & Rewinding an old Hofner President Pickup

Hofner President Air Coil Pickup rewind

Rewinding an Old, Vintage Hofner President Air Coil Pickup

Fixed & Re-Wound this old vintage Hofner President Pickup for the guys at Mansons. Inside is an air coil which are pretty difficult to fix or rewind as they have no bobbin or inner core and need to be 'laced up' when wound to keep all the strands of coil wire together. Similar in internal design to the old Burns Tri-Sonics, they're tricky things indeed. Glad I could fix it for them.

Custom Handwound Pickup Set for Alex, Franz Ferdinand

For His Specimen Emerald Deluxe Guitar

Creamery Custom Handwound Calibrated Pickup Set for Alex Kapranos Franz Ferdinand Specimen Emerald Guitar

Creamery Custom Handwound Calibrated Pickup Set for Alex Kapranos of Franz Ferdinand, for his Specimen Emerald Deluxe Guitar

Alex wanted a custom designed set for his new guitar made by Ian at Specimen Products in Chicago. We talked about the best versatile combination for both recording and live gigs and came up with this. I'd made a number of custom designs to fit into a number of his guitars but these were purely for recording, this set had to be versatile enough for the studio and stage.

Bridge - Creamery Custom Classic '71 Wide Range Humbucker

True to the original '70s design with individual threaded magnets and internal ferrous reflector plate. Alex wanted to recreate the bridge tone of his '72 Deluxe guitar so I made a custom version with slightly weaker magnets (the original CuNiFe magnets do lose charge over time. I also overowund it a little to again, add a little more warmth so the tone is classic Wide Range, the "Doubled Up" single coil tone with great clarity & definition.

Middle - Creamery Custom Sonic-Six (Standard Humbucker Size)

Although resembling one of my Hum-90, P90 design in a standard humbucker size, ther Sonic-Six is actually something quite different inside. More akin to a cross between a Jazzmaster pickups and P90, the pickup has a wide, fat, single coil but with individual threaded magnets to again, give more clarity and definition whilst keeping much of the grittier P90 tone.

Neck - Custom Vintage 2 (Broadcaster) Tele Neck

A slightly overwound version of my standard Broadcaster style Tele neck pickup with custom size Alnico 2 magnets for a warm yet clear neck tone.

Custom Calibrated Set

I made the three custom pickups as a calibrated set, designed for good volume balance with no sudden jumps or drops as Alex flicks through the positions. This means tweaking the specifications and outputs to give a good balanced volume level when moving from bridge to neck position.

 

"The pickups sound AMAZING. Totally loving the sounds I'm getting. Thanks Jaime"

- Alex Kapranos, Franz Ferdinand

Great string definition & clarity due to the 12 pole magnets that offer true single coil tones when split.

The coils & Alnico 5 magnets give this humbucker a rich, biting attack, the 43awg wire warms the sound ever so slightly while giving a higher output, enabling a great split single coil tone.

NOTE: I can stagger the magnets to follow your neck radius. Just let me know whether you have a 7.25", 9.5", 12" etc etc neck radius and I'll stagger the magnets accordingly. This way you can keep a good action on your setup.

Creamery 'Extra Width' Strat Sound Tele Neck

Warmer, Fatter Strat Tones from a Telecaster Neck Pickup

A Strat tone Pickup for the Tele Neck Position

This is my own handwound take on the Fender® Twisted Tele Neck Pickup - A true direct drop-in replacement for the Telecaster neck position where a fatter, strat tone is required.

Like the Twisted Tele I make my handwound 'Extra Width' Tele neck pickup with taller magnets that help me wind thicker 42AWG coil wire to around 6k giving a fatter, more Stratocaster sounding pickup for the Tele Neck position. (I can make them a little higher outout if required)

A warmer, fatter, strat tone for your Tele Neck position - a custom, handwound alternative to the hard-to-get Fender® Twisted Tele Pickup.

Creamery Custom Handwound Srat Neck Pickup for Telecaster - Strat Sound

Strat Sound in a Telecaster

If you love the neck position Strat sound but know that a regular Strat neck pickup won't fit into a standard Tele, then my new 'Extra Width' Tele Neck pickup could be the one for you. Designed to have the fatter, rounder, warmer Strat neck tone - I've made this pickup to fit a standard Tele neck position. Get Strat sounds from your Tele neck.
