Lollar Pickups Unveils the Raw Power Humbucker

Based on the classic sounds from the Raw Power album.

Tacoma, WA (September 22, 2015) -- Lollar pickups announce the release of the new “Raw Power” humbucker.

The Stooges Raw Power album, released in 1973 with guitarist James Williamson, eventually gained a cult following in the years following its release. Like its predecessor (1970's Fun House), is generally considered an influential forerunner of punk rock.

James left the guitar used on Raw Power at the Lollar shop for a number of weeks, and asked for the pickups to be re-produced. Lollar was able to take the pickups apart and get more than just resistance measurements. James has granted permission to offer these duplications of this original pickup set, which are versions of late 60’s Gibson T Tops. No covers, double black bobbins are standard. Alnico 5 magnets. Neck 8.1K, Bridge 7.9K - $175.00 each

Diatonic sequences are powerful tools. Here’s how to use them wisely.



• Understand how to map out the neck in seven positions.
• Learn to combine legato and picking to create long phrases.
• Develop a smooth attack—even at high speeds.

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
