Krivo Nuevo Black Single Coil Gypsy Jazz Guitar Pickup
The Nuevo single-coil pickup is the Krivo pickup which is closest in sound to the traditional Stimer pickup popularized by Django Reinhardt during his late electric period. However, I have optimized magnet position and strength to eliminate the dreaded “hot-b string” problems evinced by the original Stimer-type pickups. On the classic Nuevo, an inlaid pearl dot allows for perfect placement to achieve proper alignment and string-to-string balance. Furthermore, the Nuevo is extra thin  (approximately 6mm thick!) and thus easily fits modern guitars with low action for which a Stimer-type pickup is untenable.

Nuevo Single-Coil Specifications:

  • Hand wound with vintage Formvar wire (not the cheap polynylon used by many modern makers).
  • Wired with audiophile grade Mogami™cable inside and out.
  •  Genuine Switchcraft™ connectors.
  • Real hardwood finish.
  • Excellent alternative to traditional “Stimer” type pickups, no “hot ‘b’ string” issues like older brands.
  • Inlaid mother of pearl dot marks position of ‘B’ string for perfect string balance (This pickup has great string balance, specialized for use with  Argentine type strings).
