How To Measure

Steeltronics pickups are available in multiple pole spacings to give the best fit to your particular installation.  The options are available in the drop down menus for each pickup, but how is this measured exactly?

The pic below below shows an example of how to measure and choose the best spacing for your steel.  The measurement is taken with the rule or tape measure sitting on top of the strings at the centerline of the pickup, and you simply get the spacing measurement from the highest to the lowest string.  In the pic I have the rule sitting with the 20 mm mark at the highest string and the lowest string is at the 95 mm mark, so the actual string spacing is 95 - 20 mm which equals 75 mm.


If your spacing does not closely match up with one of the pulldowm menu choices, contact us and we can discuss a custom spacing.  We have  built many customs including wider spacing, 11 string pickups, etc.
