The Keef

(1 customer review)

“The Keef” is a pickup I was so often asked about and then asked to build that I added it to the lineup. This is the pickup to capture that tone and to complete your Micawber and/or Malcolm builds.

The “TK” is, like the Black Watch pickup, Broadcaster spec’d but wound a little extra hot. It retains the characteristics of the Black Watch but with a slightly darker tone and heavier bottom end (because of the added turns) that pushes an amp easier. Built with large diameter Alnico 3 magnets and hand-wound with 43AWG plain enamel wire.

    Hey J – just got my Telecaster Custom ‘72 put back together and played it for the first time last night! Wowza! The Partial WRHB mod and the suggested ‘Keef’ turned a somewhat disappointing Guitar into a ROCK N’ ROLL MACHINE! The Keef is a monster! Thanks! Rich!
