Just saw a post by Jason Lollar over at TGP with this picture of his new chrome horseshoe. Man this is a REALLY nice looking pickup. I'm betting it would look damn nice on some type of Coodercaster.................

I'd like to try that on a lap steel. Very Happy

I've heard rumors of him making those.
So it's an official product now?

Sure looks like it. He's saying he has 11 of them available. Price is astronomical though. He's asking $400 for them! Shocked Shocked Shocked

Horseshoes!? What's next Lollar ... hand grenades? Twisted Evil

P.S. Sorry, I'm nearing 50 and my jokes are beginning to sound like the two old farts from the Muppet Show.

Looks great, he also does a Supro / Oahu lap steel re issue. $250.00

string through

The enclosed field definitely does something special sonically for slide. This one is an original 40's pup with the base & bridge unit machined off.

what he NEEDS to make is a copy of the old DeArmond "Rhythm Chief."

I actually asked him about it in the past. He said the metal tooling is prohibitively expensive. But I mean... those things are fetching over a grand on eBay now. Surely he could make a great one, sell it for 500 bucks and eventually turn a profit?

These new Horseshoes of Jasons look great, better than the ones he did some years back. And this this revision has better magnets and with adjustable pole pieces the string to string volume balance should be great, a weakness of the original Ricks.

How do you like your martinis, DRY? Rolling Eyes Laughing

Twangster,
"The enclosed field definitely does something special sonically for slide. This one is an original 40's pup with the base & bridge unit machined off."

Is the cap on that pickup ferrous?
Just wondering what the magnetic field must look like inside of these things.

I love the way these things effect the tone of an instrument and as you said, for slide... Ooooh yeah! Cool

Yes it it ferrous , and there is a magnet at each end secured by the four screws . At first it sounded horrible, phasey and the E & B strings were almost silent .

Turns out after some research ( thanks Mr Lollar ) that a magnet had been flipped, which causes very strange flux fields in these pups. Flipped it back , bang the thing came to life, loud, perfect balance & sustain.
