Angle of Multiscale pickups? (SOLVED!)

Postby spudmunkey » Fri Feb 02, 2018 4:00 pm

Since this question comes up fairly often on FB, I thought it made sense to have an easily-searchable result here on the BBS that would be easy to link to and have continuing discussion on...something FB suuuuucks at. :laughhard:

6-string: 10.2304 degrees
7-string: 13.339 degrees
8-string: 11.0186 degrees


It also might be worth using this thread to note companies that can make custom-angled pickups to match Kiesel's angles.
- I've heard Instrumental Pickups can
- I've heard Seymour Duncan can, but it can take a long while
- I've heard Bare Knuckle pickups has angled pickups and their angles are "close enough".
- Per below, Elysian Pickups
- Per below, The Guitarmory
- Per below, "I think Oil City Pickups"

From Facebook:
- Wolftone does re-winds
- Guitarmory does re-winds and also new pickups, including wood bobbins.

Since this hasn't been updated in a while, just giving it a bump. Feel free to post any other manufacturers you know of that have made multiscale pickups, re-wind existing, etc.

Elysian Pickups, The Guitarmory, and I think Oil City Pickups can all do multiscale pickups, and between them, Bare Knuckle, and SD, there's a multiscale pickup for everyone.
