Hofner guitar pickups

Details of pickups used on vintage Hofner guitars

Hofner 510 Diamond Logo Single Coil

The Hofner 510, or "diamond logo" (due to the engraved diamond on the cover) pickups were fitted to numerous Hofner electric guitars in the period 1961-63, solid bodies and electric acoustics alike. The nickel plated cover is usually held in place with a small amount of solder but is easy detachable. It has the Hofner logo in a diamond either above or below the polepieces (depending on the pickup position). These polepieces pass through the axis of the coil (perpendicular to the direction of the strings); on a two pickup guitar the bridge pickup coil is nearer to the bridge, the neck pickup coil nearer to the neck. These pickups mount directly onto the guitar top; no need for and routing whatsoever.

Pickup dimensions: 2 9/16" x 1 1/4" x 1/2", surrounds 3" x 1 1/2".
