DownUnder™ 3 String Pickup for Cigar Box Guitar or Custom

Unique 'Drop-in' Design

From acclaimed luthier and pioneer of the cigar box guitar movement, Ted Crocker is proud to introduce the DownUnder to his line of pickups. The DownUnder has the same soul and tone as his Stonehenge pickup made for the Honey Dripper guitar he built for the Danny Glover film Honeydripper.

The DownUnder features a unique drop-in design and mounts to the top of your box. The Rosewood bobbin is oversize and it hides the hole needed for mounting. No longer will you have to have a clean hole, and you don't have to worry about creating a mount inside the box. Installation couldn't be easier!

And of course it has that famous Ted Crocker tone.

3/4" from bottom of upper bobbin to bottom of pickup.  

I still haven't finalized the design of the complete top-mount pickup Scarab.  

The DownUnder 3 is $39.95.  Order it here at my store.

Hi Ted,

I'm thinking about adding a magnetic pup to this guitar,

and was wondering about the downunder. How much room is required below decks? this shallow Padron box with a thru-neck may not have enough headroom. Do you make a version of this in a rail-type? And, finally, what are you asking for one of these?
