Ok, so my mom bought this guitar when she was young so it was probably made in the 60's and even then it is really cheaply made. I know it sucks but I was just curious as to what kind of pickup this is:



Here are some more pics of this thing:





Look at that L33t bridge . Tonepros tuneowhat?


Headstock says it's made by a company called "Winston"

I don't know.. But I like it. If I were you I'd fix it up, get it back to working, it prolly has a great tone. Or maybe it sucks? I don't know.. Fix it anyways.

Even if it has shitty tone, refinish it and put in a new pickup and bridge and play it. It's unique and not that bad looking.

The finish is sexy, just leave it. I'd replace the tuners and add a bigsby though

Yeah I agree that it looks pretty cool...I don't think it would sound very good at all. The electronics are shot so unfortunately I have no idea.

it really does look like a guitar hero guitar haha

too bad it doesnt have a tremolo bar

but if you can fix the tuners and make it work, it could be fun to play with

i dont recommend sellin it, cmon its been owned for so long
#22
To actually answer your question... It looks like some kind of single-coil. Probably a Strat-style pickup in a strange casing.
It would be pretty sweet if you fixed it up though....

I Have a guitar kinda like that. It's a lot bigger, but one pickup and similar elecs & bridge. I'm gonna fix it up and shred that bad mother. It's a great rhythm guitar, with killer tone, and amazing sustain. Best of all, IT FITS IN MY LOCKER and it is plywood, so it weighs like f---king nothing!

IMO, you should fix that bad sucker up and play it. It may seem like a gimmick, but it's killer tone will likely kill your audience.

P.S., the above is true, and not a joke.

I'm definitely not selling it. It's been in the house for as long as I can remember. My mom said she'd give me some money to fix it up for her. I'm gonna replace the tuners and open it up to fix any wires that need soldering. Then I'll see how it plays (with new strings obviously :P) and if it needs a new bridge...which it probably does.

Yeah man, the thing weighs like 5 lbs. It does seem like it would be fun and you say it has good tone? Thats good to know. Now Im actually enthusiastic about this .
