HOUN'PUPS ARE NOW $10 LESS THAN BEFORE.   CBG version now only $40, with free shipping within the U.S. 48.

MOST FOLKS PREFER PICKUPS PRE-BUILT

It is possible for some to make their own pickups-- even standard guitar pickups with thousands of hair-thin wire coil wraps.  Many of you here can build your own standard and induction pickups.  Full instructions for induction pickups are here on two forum threads-- a lengthy one to show you the step-by-step brain-tank process, and a shorter one that shows you the good stuff right off the bat.

However some can't build a pickup for various reasons:

* Lack of time, lack of desire, or missing skillz (such as soldering)

* Scarcity of parts in your area (this can be a problem)

* Perhaps physical problems prevent handling a soldering iron or delicate construction. We can all sympathize with such issues.

Truth is, most guitar players-- even CBG builders-- prefer to install a pre-built pickup.  We do it all the time.  For such folks I market the Houn'Pup Induction Pickup

An advantage to the Houn'Pup is that it's been researched and experimented to the gills to produce the best possible sound results.  In addition it's encased in solid poly-resin-- which makes it one tough pickup.  It's solid, sounds great and is easy to install.

FINALLY MANAGED TO LOWER THE PRICE

I once said on these forums that if I could produce a pickup faster and at less expense I'd pass the savings on to the customer.  That's been my long-term goal with the Houn'Pup due to its relatively simple design (simple compared to a wire-coil magpup).

Up to this time I've sold Houn'Pups at $50 to $55 and customers have been very pleased with the results.  I had to ask that much to cover the expense of parts and time put into building them with excellent quality.  But after much experimenting trying different construction methods, I've achieved the same rich, clear Houn'Pup sound-- but I can now build them faster and at less construction expense. Identical quality minus time and expense = ability to offer at lower price.

So I'm reducing the price as promised:   an original, hand-made CBG Houn'Pup now starts at only $40. Full size 6-string only $45.  : )

May you build many guitars!
