First up is a new 5 string pickup in development. The Wide Five includes new magnet and bobbins for full 72mm string spread coverage at the bridge position for a typical Fiver. Because of more wire and magnet, prices will increase to $190. All the same winds that are available for a regular Thunderbucker are also available for the Wide Five.

At the same time. prices for 3D printing have come down, and so I can reduce the price of a regular Thunderbucker 4 string pickup to $165, same as it was a number of years ago.

Hurray!

However, the USPS keeps raising prices. When I began this business, Priority Mail Small Box was $5.25.  Now it is $7.90.  But the economists assure us there is no inflation, oh no. So shipping costs some more.

Anti-Hurray!

And international. There is no reasonably priced  way to do it, and insurance is required. I had a postal employee enter a "zero" instead of an "oh" in a postal code and a a shipment to the UK went to Vancouver BC instead.

Oh dear. It all did get sorted in the end.

Also new are an EBO style hand rest, and a no-holes trim ring made from .062" Nickle Silver. This is typically mounted with 3M double sticky tape for a very clean and stlyish look.
