  • LIPSTICK PICKUPS?

    Can someone explain what a lipstick pick-up is? How is it different?

    What is your opinion of them?

            How do they sound in comparison to other types of p/u's?

                  dimmypage, JoeBoy,

                  How do you guys like the lipstick HB's? Are they the GFS pups?

                  How do they sound and what sort of music do you play with them? Versatile or a one-trick pony?

                  Do they have the same dimensions as the uncovered HB's (bobbin width same as the lipstick cover)?

                  Sorry for all the questions but I have a Jagmaster that I'm considering for a pup change and I think it would pop right in. As you can see below, a covered HB wouldn't fit without some pickguard modification (which I want to avoid).

                    Great for that jangley Birds or surf sound. The ones in my Dan tend to be microphonic- beware the monitors!

                      I had a set of GFS lipstick buckers in my Jagmaster before I sold it. They sounded great. I tried 4-5 sets of pups in that guitar before sticking the lipstick buckers in.

                      I puked last night after eating a volcano taco and drinking vodka. I felt like a ****************ing dragon.

                        Traditional lipsticks are low output, they have both a bright, jangle-twang side to them but are also "lo-fi" enough for a really good blues or slide tone.

                        I would say they are most comparable to things like Grestch single coils, old Teisco pickups, etc. They are not the round, bell-like, full-bodies tone of a Fender SC.

                          Wyatt: Thanks for the response. How do you think they would compare to the twin humbuckers on my hollow body Ibanez? Thanks.

                            Mine:


                            If you're going to get them, I would suggest GFS. These'll fit without having to get a new pickguard:

                              I really, really, really beg to differ with this part of your comment. I find them to possess much more chime and bell-like qualities than Fender single coils, at least in the neck.
