Teisco Kimberly Gold Foil Pickups from the 60's

I picked up the guitar these came from in late 2008 and the pickup pair has a market value of $100. These are 1960's vintage Goldfoil guitar pickups similar to those used by Ry Cooder on his guitar. This was Teisco's version of the famous DeArmond Gold Foil pickups used on many Harmony guitars of the 1960's. These were pulled as a working matched set from a Kimberly branded Teisco guitar with other issues. The neck pickup measured 4.70K ohms and bridge pickup measured 4.80K ohms. The lead wires are about 4-5 inches long on both of the pickups.

Here's a earlier entry with a bit more information and pictures.
