National Slimline Pickup - The Twelfth Fret

National Slimline Pickup

The National Slimline pickup was designed by National Reso-Phonic Guitars, Inc. and Villex Electronics

This dual-coil humbucking thinline pickup, measuring .215” thick,  is designed to be affixed to the top of a guitar at the end of the fretboard.  You can route the lead wire inside or outside of the guitar body.  The first mounting style is to affix the pickup using the provided 3M double-stick tape and route the wire outside of the guitar to the endpin.  This mounting technique requires no modification to your instrument.   The second mounting technique offers two options–run the lead wire through the soundhole inside the body, or drill a 1/8” hole underneath the pickup and run the wire internally.  In either case,  the lead wire is then hardwired to the provided ¼” jack that must be permanently mounted in the desired location.
