DeArmond/Rowe style Argyle gold foil

Argile Grille Goldfoil used on Airline, Silvertone and Harmony guitars and basses from the late 50's early to late 60's This was labor of love for me recreating this amazing pickup, and it has been many years in the making to get it right and to vintage specs. I could not be more pleased with the final results. In my opinion this era of Goldfoil pickups are the best. This version was made by DeArmond / Rowe Industries in Toledo, Ohio. I can wind it from 5k to 13k.
