The Vampette has a construction that is half way between a Firebird pickup and a deluxe mini humbucker. A Firebird AL 5 magnet as a blade in one bobbin, polepieces in the other and a plated steel baseplate as a magnetic conductor. This results in a pickup with good articulation and clarity, combined with the low profile for fitting to an unrouted hollowbody guitar.
The Vampette is wound using a fine (AWG 44) wire, more in the style of the IBZ GB Specials than the traditional Johnny Smith pickups. The Vampette offers an exceptional combination of clarity, detail and warmth.
It is available with either a neck bracket or a LH / RH pickguard mount. The pickup has an overall height of 13.5mm, allowing it to be fitted to most hollow bodied jazz guitars without routing.
