The Wee Range is anything but small. Similar to the Vintage ’72 in appearance and tone the Wee Range humbucker is both lower output and slightly heavier than the Vintage ’72. Being smaller in stature it cannot use the large coils of the traditional WRHB. But it does use the threaded magnet and Alnico V combination we build the Vintage 72’s with. It is both clear and full with smooth high frequencies.

The Wee Range can be split to produce a very satisfying single coil tone (with lower output, of course) that is spanky, chimey and sparkling.

These are ideal replacements for the Fender Shawbucker and go in the opposite direction tonally.

P.A.F. sized these fit into a standard humbucker route.

Available in F-spacing (52mm bridge and 50mm neck) or Gibson (50mm bridge and neck).

Bridge: 8.5k, Neck: 7.5k

A NOTE ABOUT SOUND CLIPS:

Corporate marketing hype has made it mostly necessary to include sound clips and resistance specifications. Both have very limited meaning and are, in many ways, lies. The best player can make the lousiest guitar loaded with the cheapest pickups played through the lamest amp sound downright amazing. For that reason I feel that clips are misleading. Clips let you hear almost everything except the pickup and primarily the amp in a controlled environment that’s not readily reproducible. Please take these thoughts into consideration.

    I am loving these pups in my tele (the brown one was mine but now these are in a different body). They sound Wide Range territory to me–crunchy slightly compressed HB sound with more single coil “openness” clarity and chime. If I had a one-pickup guitar, I think I’d be satisfied with one of these on the bridge.
    They do sound very cool split, very fun with various effects (reverb, vibrato).
    And finally, Jesse is the man. So gracious and clearly committed to the customer’s goals and satisfaction. He even helped me sort out my wiring issues- due to my poor soldering skills and electrical knowledge. I hope to work with him again

    Put these in my SG that previously had stock gibson pickups, which were not bad, but pretty bland. I had Jesse build these based on numerous wandering conversations where I provided no tangible sense of what I was looking for. Somehow he was able to turn that into exactly what I was looking for. A pickup with a ton of character. Almost a humbucker with the heart of a single-coil in sound. I love dynamics and tones in all ranges. Really nailed it – very glad I hit him up to make some badass pickups. Thanks Jesse!

    I wanted something different in pickups to put in my first custom designed guitar I built and I made a great choice with these Wee Range pickups. I am getting so many different sounds all the way from AC/DC to great Strat sounds by splitting the coils on both pickups.
    I went sight unseen and sound unheard when I purchased these pickups and have no regrets at all. Keep up the good work Jesse!
