Lipstick Pickups The lipstick-tube pickup was first introduced by Danelectro on their line of electric guitars. The original lipstick-tube pickups were in fact manufactured using surplus lipstick tubes that were bought from a cosmetics manufacturer and featured on many original Danelectro guitars. These surplus lipstick tubes had the electronics inserted within and therefore made it the lowest cost guitar pickup in the industry at the time. The current production pickups are not made using surplus lipstick tubes but rather using tubes machined especially to match their original design. It is crafted from a single-coil magnetic guitar pickup which has its electronics totally encased in a chrome-plated metal tube. These renowned pickups allow you to achieve a rich sound.
