B&G's Private Build Kikbucker pickups, handwound by B&G '50s style, unpotted by default. Kikbuckers are noiseless P90s, which give a more traditional single-coil tone. Think Strat neck pickup with a Tele bridge pickup, with a bit more warmth and you're close!
The Kikbucker pickups are a new design by B&G co-founder Yotam (Kiki) Goldshtein. They deliver the same sound character as singles, but with hum cancellation.
Each pickup we make is wound by hand. The real secret to this art lies in the winding pattern, which entails how the wires are spread across the bobbin and how much pressure is used to tighten the coils. Preserving the traditional techniques of pickup winding enables us to weave together the qualities that embodied the essence of the Golden Age.
The machines and materials we use work symbiotically to create a unique sound - that richness that has become an identifying marker of B&G Guitars.
Our approach is quality and accuracy: using the right materials for the job and making sure that they are the best around.
Since we make only a small number of pickups, we have no need to compromise on using premium quality materials and techniques, or in other words - no compromise on sound.
