THE STRONGEST HUMBUCKER WE MAKE.

The High Output Humbucker has the thickest, fattest tone of all out humbuckers. Perfect for high-gain playing, especially with single notes. Our High Output Humbucker is a thick-sounding humbucker that sounds great when split. It’s perfect for anyone looking for the beefiest tone possible. Wound with 43-gauge wire and AlNiCo V magnets, you’ll get a smooth grind, with a ton of output.

SoundSOUND:

Our High Output Humbucker is the thickest and loudest Humbucker we make. It has a very aggressive and dark tone. It’s beefier and more aggressive than our Modern P.A.F. . Expect a thick-sounding single-string note that’s quick to break up. Chords will sound full and crunchy with a good amount of soft-clip compression. The High Output Humbucker is best with distortion, especially with single-notes. The grind is thick and smooth, and single notes will sustain and sing. Because this humbucker is so strong, it’s ideal for coil-tapping. This will leave the single coil pickup strong enough to play well with others. Best used in a bridge position, the High Output Humbucker will sound great and have a warm, round pick attack.
 
Our manufacturing process allows us to achieve unparalleled quality control. High Output Humbuckers consist of USA-Made bobbins, baseplates, magnets, and wire. We wind each pickup by hand, one at a time. Each pickup is wound using our proprietary “Sectioning” technique. This gives the pickup a sweet, clear tone.
 
We assemble each pickup one at a time, by hand. This allows us to achieve unbeatable attention to detail. Finally, we wax-pot the pickup to preserve the pickup, and prevent microphonics.


FAQFAQ’S:

  1. What’s the difference between this model and the Modern P.A.F.? The Modern P.A.F. has less turns per coil and uses a weaker magnet, giving this pickup a warmer and thicker tone than the Modern P.A.F.. In a nutshell, this pickup is the highest output pickup we make, with lots of volume and thickness.
  2. Can you Coil Tap this model? Yep! Choose 3-Conductor Lead and use our diagrams here. This model is strong enough to split as-is (no resistor needed).
  3. What Lead should I choose? If you have a Gibson style instrument with separate volume pots for each pickup, go with the Gibson Shielded Braided lead. Fender style instruments or players with coil tapping or phase reversing needs, go with 3-Conductor. If you want the maximum options, go with 4-Conductor.
  4. What Output should I choose? Our Stock Set of High Outputs reads 11.7K in the Neck and 13.7K in the Bridge. If you want a stronger and darker tone, go with a higher output. If you want a clearer and more open tone, go with a lower output.
  5. What Spacing should I choose? Gibson style instruments use 49.2mm on the neck and bridge. Fender style instruments use a 52mm Bridge and a 50mm neck.
  6. Wiring Diagrams? Here!

CHOOSING THE LEAD:

  1. Gibson® Braided Shielded: Most popular. Use this if you have no special requirements (Coil tapping, Phase Reverse or Series / Parallel).
  2. 3-Conductor With Shield: Use this if you have Coil Tapping or Phase Reverse needs.
  3. 4-Conductor With Shield:  Use this if you have Coil Tapping, Phase Reverse, Series or Parallel needs.

CHOOSING THE SPACING:

  1. 49.2mm: Choose this for Gibson Standard Spacing
  2. 50mm: Fender Neck Spacing
  3. 52mm: Fender Bridge Spacing

    After a discussion with Lindy, I put these pickups in a vintage Gibson KZII guitar. The KZII was not a high-end Gibson when it came out but I love the way it is balanced (unlike my ’66 ES335 and my ’72 Les Paul Custom) and is light as a feather (unlike my Les Paul that requires a visit to the chiropractor after playing it for more than 30 min.). I wanted the KZ to sound better than it did with the stock pickups so I had Lindy make some High Output humbuckers for me. After installing them I plugged the guitar in and was completely blown away by the quality of the sound. I’ve a great Black Face amp and the combination of the two is astounding. Warm, creamy, expressive, clean if desired, breakup easy and distinct, and very sensitive to knob positions which is a delight. The variation of sounds by changing these positions allows it to be played on a large variety of musical styles. I have a decent amount of great guitars and for now, this little marginalized KZII has easily become my favorite electric guitar.

    Lindy and his crew are as good as it gets, not only in product but also in customer service and attitude. I have Lindy’s pickups in a bass and three guitars including this KZ and they all sound fantastic but distinctly different, which is the point. After over 60 years playing and writing music it took me this long to discover Lindy and his crew. Advice: Don’t wait as long as I did!
