With the S-Style pickups I really want to avoid having multitudes of models and confusion, most customers just want “a really cool vintage strat®” and they don’t want to wade thru a whole bunch of rubbish to find the right pickups.
If you are tired of all the hype and just want a vintage correct S-Style pickup, exactly like the best examples from the late 1950's and early 1960's then this is it … chime, shimmer, clean note decay with warmth and power and not a hint of thin, icy or brassy tones.
Here’s the basic blurb…
All my pickups use vintage correct materials, twineball scatter winding, real Formvar or PE wire, Forban, compressed fiber bobbins, cloth covered 22g “pushback” output wires and hand charged AlNiCo, produced via a special “sort and grind” process just for me.
CLASSIC '57 PICKUPS
The Classic '57's are a re-creation of the classic mid 50’s spec, giving vintage chime, shimmer, bell tones and airy chord voicings. They are all built to the averaged 1957 spec with resistances of aprox 5.75kOhms (a little warmer in the bridge) with a north polarity and clockwise winding.
At the end of the day all my pickups are totally vintage correct and as such, everything I make could have come from “back in the day”.
Comes complete with mounting parts and expert aged white pickup covers.
