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".

Vintage Hofner pickup Club 40 / 50, Commitee, London125, Model 457 / S / E2, President

MACHYNLLETH, SY208LS, UNITED KINGDOM

£200

Lovely vintage Hofner pickup made around 1960. I acquired this pickup in around 1968 with my first guitar which was a Beatlesque single cutaway Hofner club 40 which if I had now I would be a very happy man! Anyway I do have a "Toaster" pickup which could be the final bit you need to finish your project. Was fitted to many Hofners of that era. As you can see from the pictures it has a tale to tell and I think looks fantastic but you could always re-chrome and rewind it if you wanted to ruin it! ... more
