Custom Hand Wound Pickups Crafted with Pride in the USA
Pickups available at Eastgrove Pickups
Eastgrove Legacy (custom shop) series pickups:
All Legacy series pickups come with gray bottom bobbins and the choice of the
Petros pickups--these have alnico 5 magnets on the wound strings with alnico 2
magnets on the bare strings. This helps to bring out the low frequencies to make it
more of a solid (rock) pickup. This reduces the “twang” and is good for rock, solid
blues, ska and any music that you want to feel substance instead of sounding like a
tele. Great combination with a Humbucker or alnico 5 bridge. Available stagger or
Staggered pickups available in alnico 2, 5 or combination (Petros).
Level pickups available in alnico 2,3,5 or 2,5 Petros or 3,5 combinations.
All pickups available for neck/bridge or middle position.
Recommended sets (my personal choices)
For SSS guitars. Petros neck, alnico two middle and alnico 5 bridge.
For HSS recommended Petros neck and middle with nice quality high output Humbucker
These high quality pickups are made with the same quality parts as the Legacy
series, but the choices are more limited. The bobbins are standard black. Built
with Alnico 5 magnets with a choice of traditional staggered or level. These are
available in light (6 kohm) to strong (8+kohm) resistance.
All pickups, custom and non-custom are personally hand wound with a hand powered
winder by me, Pete. All pickups are potted with 20% beeswax/paraffin mix.
