A lipstick guitar pickup is a form of single-coil magnetic guitar pickuphaving its electronics totally encased in a chrome-plated metal tube. 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, and were featured on Danelectro, Danelectro's Coral series, and guitars that were later marketed through Sears, Roebuck and Company department stores under the name Silvertone.

Q: I went to an estate sale that had a great collection of vintage lipstick tubes. These were ornate lipstick tubes, even mini works of art in gold, silver, wood, bakelite, celluloid, and enamel. There were at least of them.
I've got a LOT of old lipstick tubes sitting around. They're mostly one brand -- I'm a creature of habit when it comes to makeup. Mine are Estee Lauder, and they're very prettily designed, and made of metal.
Think about how different makeup looked in the s. Yeah the styles were different, but the products themselves looked like they were from another universe. Looks Styling Gel?
Do you mind if I post a this as a link to the Fedora Lounge - I know the ladies there will find this most useful. I also read somewhere that you can use a lighter to warm up the bottom of the lipstick slightly to get it to stick to the base better. Inky- yes, feel free to share with others, and please add Tart Deco's tip about the lighter!
