    Creamery Custom Ric® Style Replacement High '68 Pickup

    The Fatter, Higher Output, Late '60s Ric® Style Single Coil Sound

    I wanted to make a version of the famous Rickenbacker® Hi-Gain Pickups but with more clarity & definition. The original & Modern reissue Hi-Gain pickup designs utilise a strong Ceramic bar magnet underneath and ferrous pole screws through the overwound coil and as well as making a great sounding modern reproduction, I also wanted to make a replacement that was more true to the original individual Alnico rod magnet design. With the much thinner 44AWG coil wire comes more mid-range, especially in such an overwound coil and after many, many prototypes, I signed off these final designs & specifications.

    Available in either Toaster® style covers with Alnico Rods or traditional open style with Ceramic Bar

    I've had both sets of covers custom manufactured, the classic Toaster® style which is my personal favourite and the open face style cover or you can select a version truer to the original Hi-Gain pickup Specifications with Hex/Allen Bolts & Ceramic Bar Magnet in a chrome open-frame cover The Alnico Rod version is a little crunchier, a little brighter, a little punchier whereas the Ceramic Bar version a little dirtier, a little grittier.

    Fatter, warmer that pushes the amp more, I've designed my own version of the famous Hi-Gain pickups again with a custom neck specification & pickup output for good volume balance through the positions.
