Krivo Nuevo Chrome Single Coil Gypsy Jazz Guitar Pickup

Krivo Nuevo Chrome Single Coil Gypsy Jazz Guitar Pickup
Now with a sleek, classic chrome finish, the Nuevo single-coil pickup is the Krivo pickup which is closest in sound and appearance to the traditional Stimer™ pickup popularized by Django Reinhardt during his late electric period. However, this is not merely a "gypsy-jazz" pickup: the Nuevo excels on archtop jazz guitar and resonator guitars (According to Just Jazz Guitar Magazine: "Sonically, the 'Nuevo' has a 'P-90' sound" ).  I have optimized magnet position and strength to eliminate the dreaded “hot-b string” problems evinced by the original Stimer-type pickups. Furthermore, the Nuevo ​has a much higher output and lower noise than competing single-coil pickups. Available in a petit bouche model (with black woodgrain finish) which fits perfectly into the fretboard cutaway of oval-hole gypsy jazz guitars for a "seamless" look.

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).
  • Very responsive to EQ so a wide range of tonal colors are at your disposal, from bright and transparent to thick and colored. 
  • Works equally well with a tube amp or dedicated acoustic amps.
  • Slimmer in profile than traditional models.
  • Uses neodymium magnets for clarity and brilliance with strong lows.
  • Innovative “Optimized Microphonics” design senses acoustic vibrations from the soundboard in addition to string vibrations.
  • Mounts with included non-invasive, easily removable, finish friendly putty.
  • No modification to instrument requires , mounts in seconds.
  • Fully shielded for noise minimization.
  • Excellent transparent acoustic tone.
