* Nep-Tone pickups by Coral ™, a tremendous value for a true replica pickup.

*Made by hand, one at a time in the U.S.A..

*Exact replacement for original Danelectro, Coral ™, Silvertone/Danelectro, Jerry Jones, Reissue Danelectro, Reissue Silvertone/Danelectro, etc. instruments.

*The heart of the pickup is the magnet. I use correct FULL SIZE Alnico 6 magnets manufactured in the U.S.A. to my specs. based on an original 1959 era magnet. Each magnet is friction taped prior to winding exactly as the originals were. Only the best available vintage correct 42 AWG "Plain Enamel" coil wire is used, and most importantly, its wound directly onto the taped Alnico 6 magnet. This is a step others avoid due to its difficulty. They may use smaller magnets {of the wrong type}, thinner incorrect gauge coil wire, a bobbin to mount the magnet in and wind on {originals NEVER used a bobbin, or a combination of all three. These methods and materials are all incorrect. If you prefer a Lipstick pickup look-a-like you will be fine with any of those type, but if you want a LEGIT hand made in the U.S.A. Lipstick replica, buy Nep-Tone.
