ALNICO / D.C. =8K Kent Armstrong, has long been the best Jazz pick-up designer in the industry. This time he has really outdone himself! This pick-up is only 3/8", thick but sacrifises nothing in terms of sound quality of the full rich sound that players have come to expect of such a pick-up. Don't worry about getting a pick-up to fit under the strings again!

The Slimbucker Pickup from Kent Armstrong is intended for mounting to the end of a guitar's fingerboard. The two mounting tabs wrap around the outside of the fingerboard and the pickup is attached with the four screws. Once you have the tabs properly profiled to fit the neck, mark the four mounting tab holes on the edges of the neck and drill 1/16" pilot holes for the screws. The tabs can be bent with pliers to match your fingerboard's width and profile. Wrap the jaws of the pliers with electrical tape to protect the pickup. You may also find it necessary to "tweak" the angle of the mounting tabs relative to the face of the pickup. This will insure that the pickup is parallel to the stings. When bending the tabs, grasp them near the pickup housing and gently bend them the desired amount. Try to avoid re-bending.

There are two solder lugs on the bottom of the pickup ready for your wiring. We recommend purchasing our Gibson braided wire. The lug closest to the mounting tabs is the ground or shield lug, and it should be wired to the Gibson wire's outer braid. The inner conductor of the wire will connect to the inner or hot lug. You can run the pickup straight into output endpin jack, or you may choose to use onboard volume and tone controls. These controls can be mounted to the instrument's pickguard, or into holes drilled into the face of the guitar. 500k for brighter tone, 250k for warmer tone.
