Creamery Classic Handwound Replacement "Staple" Mini-Humbucker Pickup

Based on the 1965 Hofner™ 511 Nova-Sonic "Staple" Twin Coil Humbucker but in a standard Mini-Humbucker size as a direct drop-in replacement

A classic mini-humbucker sound that's warm, rich and clear with great harmonics, somewhere between a humbucker & single coil - a fat single-coil, hum-cancelling sound. A little clearer and crunchier than a standard Mini-Humbucker due to the exposed "Staple" Poles, but warmer than a traditional Firebird pickup - Making a really unique sound.

With my replacement mini humbuckers, the coils are asymmetrically handwound giving more dynamics, with a richer clarity & string definition. A rich, vintage sound.

The coil wire used in the original 511 Staple Pickups were somewhere between 43AWG & 44AWG (Wire Gauge) so there was a choice of which to use for my own versions. After a number of prototypes using both wire gauges, I finally decided on the ever-so-slightly thicker 43AWG.

Handwound here in my workshop, Manchester.

PLEASE NOTE: You can now select the 510 style Single Coil in the neck position for a sweeter, warmer, jazzier neck sound.
PLEASE NOTE: My Handwound Classic '65 "Staple" Pickup is a standard Mini-Humbucker size, the original Hofner™ 511 Pickups are slightly wider. I designed these pickups to be a direct drop-in replacement for standard Mini-Humbucker pickups. I do often repair & rewind original, vintage Hofner™ ones, just get in touch.
