Perfect replicas of the early 1969 grey bottom Strat® pickups. These have the snap and growl that were made famous by artists such as Jimi Hendrix, Eric Clapton, and David Gilmour. Each pickup is wound using vintage spec plain enamel wire, staggered non-beveled Alnico 5 magnets, lacquered bobbins, and wax potted. Every detail and manufacturing method was recreated to make these as close to the originals as possible. Sonic clarity, bell tone, and balance with every pickup.
