51 is an ideal pickup for Selmer Maccaferri style guitars. It produces
an amplified electric sound, referring to the ‘modern’ period of Django
Reinhardt, from 1950 till his death in 1953. In that period, Django’s
solos became less chordal. His legendary live at St. Germains club in
1951 was the defining source of inspiration for us to design Kleio 51,
that is why we decided to dedicate the pickup’s number ID (51) to that
Kleio pickups were inspired by Adonis Goulielmos, a gypsy jazz guitar luthier www.goulielmos-guitars.gr.
The name of the pickup belongs to his nine-year-old daughter and it is
written exactly as she writes her name, using Latin characters.
7mm - 9/32'' thick
DC Resistance : 7.5K
Alnico 5 bar magnet
pickup is well balanced between the gypsy strings (especially on B
string) and this is because we tuned the pickup with the famous
argentine gypsy strings of Savarez, however it also works very well with
other gypsy strings. A line on top of the pickup indicates the position
of the B string.
51 has a nice vintage volume control with 500K log pot and can be
easily mounted either on the tailpiece or on top of the guitar.
idea of mounting the volume pot on the tailpiece belongs to the
guitarist Dmitry Kuptsov, so we named it the “Kuptsov variation”. To put
it simply, with the “Kuptsov variation”, you don’t have to stick
anything on the top of the guitar.The other solution is to stick a
bluetack plastic with velcro on the top of the guitar.The volume pot
bottom plate has a velcro that can be mounted on the velcro strip of the
“Kuptsov variation” or on a plastic piece that we provide you with.
