Yves Guen Original Pickup ST51 Original
At long last, the original Stimer pickup is now available! This pickup is a reissue of the original design by Yves Guen. Yves' son, Christian, is now producing these wonderful pickups which adhere completely to the original design. They yield the same classic sound that Django and so many other great Gypsy players made famous. This is the "monkey on a stick" version which is installed via a mounting rod that is suspended by a supporting base that is clipped onto the strings behind the bridge. Also fits perfectly on archtop guitars and sounds great!

Yves Guen ST51

Pros: a great pickup for an acoustic archtop

Cons: none

I bought this to put on an archtop and it works perfectly. I put a felt dot under the treble side of the pickup and a piece of putty under the bass side of the pickup to keep it from sliding up and down on the mounting rod. The sound is very warm and full, like the ST48 model. With Argentine strings the B string is slightly louder, but not enough to interfere with playing, In fact, it produces that old 40's - 50's electric sound very well. With electric strings it has a classic, rich archtop sound. It is made to be used without a pickguard.
