The VS Set:
 
The VS set incorporates a calibrated vintage magnet stagger utilizing Alnico 3 grade magnets to give them that aged, weakened property that is reminiscent of the 1950's Strat pickups.   The VS set drips with a vintage tone that only Amalfitano Pickups can produce.    They're wound with period correct Formvar Magnetic wire to 5.4K ohms for the Neck Pickup, 5.6K ohms for the Middle Pickup, and 5.7K ohms for the Bridge Pickup.   The VS set will deliver a smooth and sparkling combination of tonal selections from your guitar.   The middle pickup comes standard in non reverse windings, if you require RWRP please specify when ordering.

The '62 Set:
 
The '62 set utilizes slightly larger diameter Alnico 3 grade magnets than the VS set. They have a calibrated vintage magnet stagger that is reminiscent of the 60's Strat pickups They're wound with correct gauge Formvar Magnetic wire to approximately 6.2K ohms for all three pickups. The '62 set is also non RWRP in order to retain it's vintage vibe. Once installed, balancing this set requires a height adjustment stagger for all three having the bridge pickup closer to the strings than the neck pickup, and the middle pickup somewhere in-between the other two.

The TP or Broadcaster Set:
 
Now Telecaster players can obtain a more tonally balanced usable neck pickup, replacing their darker sounding OEM pickup. The TP set uses slightly taller Alnico 5 grade magnets and wound to 9.0K ohms, gives this pickup it's fuller, brighter musical tone. When coupled with the matching Bridge pickup, it's capable of canceling 60-cycle hum in the middle (both) switch position due to the Reverse Wound Reverse Polarity construction.
The Bridge pickup uses taller, raised flush, Alnico 5 grade magnets along with Vintage Formvar Magnetic Wire wound to a 9.0K ohm resistance value. This still retains the Tele properties but have more power. Coupled with a copper-clad steel base plate, it produces a more fatter, punchier tone. It also eliminates the excessive ear-piercing trebles inherent with most Tele Bridge Pickups.
 
The Broadcaster set utillizes slightly larger diameter, Alnico 3 flush magnets wound with vintage enameled wire along with a copper-clad steel base plate. It's complimented with the extrordinary Glendale Deluxe neck pickup which works equally well with this set. 
All Amalfitano Pickups sets come assembled using vintage color-coded cloth covered wire leads and are lightly wax potted to eliminate microphonics.

The Glendale Deluxe Set:
 
Hand wound pickups made exclusively for Glendale Guitars. This is Glendale's formula for neck and bridge pickups, and Amalfitano Pickups has handcrafted them to perfection. The neck pickup is warm, rich and full sounding. It has the right amount of highs, mids and lows. The bridge pickup is constructed using raised-flush Alnico magnets. The sound is very full, rich and even-toned. Tone is what it's all about. Some call it "Twang" but Dale likes to call it "TONE".
When you experience my neck and bridge pickups you'll say...GREAT TONE! 
This set is sold exclusively through Glendale Guitars at www.glendaleguitars.com .

The Fullbucker or PAF Set:
 
The Fullbucker set are full bodied, rich sounding, humbucker pickups incorporating hand-assembled, over wound bobbins that are specifically designed for the Bridge (approx. 8.50K ohms) and Neck (approx. 8K ohms) positions.
Using quality construction materials, these humbuckers are assembled with vintage enameled #42 gauge magnetic wire, hardwood maple spacer blocks, nickel/steel base plates and single conductor shielded lead wires.   (Four conductor wire leads are also available so you can customize coil selections on each pickup).   These can be assembled with double black, zebra or creme coils as well as nickel or chrome covers, (please specify when ordering).  Also utilized are stronger grade Alnico 5 bar magnets which promotes their harmonic tonal attributes during all volume settings. I also construct a low output, vintage sounding, PAF style humbucker which uses old school rough sand cast Alnico 2 magnets for that true vintage tone, along with genuine hardwood maple spacer blocks. These are not wax potted as were the original PAF's. For those requiring more distortion from their pickups, ceramic magnets and high output windings are the way to go. Bear in mind that Fullbuckers can virtually be constructed having an infinite combination between magnet strength and output levels in order to achieve your tone. Let me know what Amalfitano Pickups can build for you.
 
NEW to Amalfitano Pickups are Aged Humbuckers for that vintage look.
 
All Amalfitano Pickups sets are lightly wax potted to eliminate microphonics unless specified otherwise.

The P90 Soapbar Set:
 
These soapbars are designed to give the P90 user more bang for the buck.   They're constructed having more output than stock OEM P90's, while still retaining their single coil properties and growl when pushed to the limit.   Each pickup is designed to compliment each other when used together as a set.   The Bridge pickup is constructed using vintage enameled magnetic wire and either utilizes Alnico grade 2 bar magnets for a slightly warmer tone or Alnico 5 magnets for that "in your face" louder punch (please specify when ordering) which are sandwiched between a plated baseplate and the bobbin.   Having around a 9.6K ohm output value makes these pickups a strong contender in the P90 class.   The Neck pickup, approx 8.6K ohms, is similar to the Bridge with the exception of having a Reverse Wound Reverse Polarity construction that offers hum-canceling properties when selected to the (both on) middle position.   These come equipped with either black or cream colored plastic covers (please specify when ordering).
All Amalfitano Pickups sets are lightly wax potted to eliminate microphonics.
