'58 Quiet Coil w/ Hot Bridge Strat® Pickup Prewired Pickguard
Mojotone ‘58 “Quiet Coil™” prewired solderless pickguards are completely prewired to perfection with no soldering required. Just drop in and play. Our exclusive 7% tolerance CTS pots, Switchcraft jack, Mojotone Vitamin T capacitor, and CRL 5-way switch compliment what we believe to be the best sounding hum-canceling strat pickups ever made. With the Hot "Quiet Coil" in the bridge position, you get a more balanced output between positions and better sustain, for those who do not like the weaker vintage strat pickups in the bridge position. Carefully balanced in output from the neck, middle, to bridge positions, and completely hum-canceling in ALL positions!

Our approach was very simple, to make a hum-cancelling strat pickup that looks and sounds like a real single coil with minimal parts and adhering to actual vintage single coil attributes. We've matched the resonant peak frequency, and inductance of a vintage single coil, so they sit right in the frequency response and feel of a traditional single coil, without having to compensate for it. The HOT “Quiet Coil™” is still very much like a single coil with more midrange and bass for a heavier blues tone with sustain.
No batteries, stacked coils, or anything else associated with other hum-canceling pickups were used in our design. The result is simply the most pure and authentic strat tone possible, with absolutely no loss of true single coil tone.
NOTE: With all Mojotone “Quiet Coil™” pickups, you never have to worry about string spacing and radius issues, or the magnets pulling the strings out of tune, and you can bend the strings heavily without ever losing focus or sustain. All of this while achieving perfect single coil strat tone and absolutely no hum!
Quiet Coil Design Features...
- Consistent scatterwound coils for that handwound tone, sensitivity, and clarity.
- Vintage formulated Alnico magnet cores with lower Gauss levels like an aged vintage strat pickup.
- Vintage cloth covered leads for easy push-back soldering.
- Matched resonant peak frequency, inductance, and resistance of a vintage single coil.
- Vintage staggered polepieces for a traditional strat pickup look.
- No routing modifications are required to fit shallow vintage routs like the taller stacked hum-cancelling designs.
- Less than 10 parts are used to build the Quiet Coils. Like a vintage strat pickup, they are SIMPLE!

Great pickups, beautifully wired, horrible volume taper
by Travis Dahl -
I put the tele quiet coils in another guitar and they were the first noiseless pickups I ever thought sounded great so tried these on a new build and again very impressed. They are just great sounding strat pickups, noiseless aside. I'm knocking off a star because I HATE the taper on the volume knob. As soon as you roll it back to about 7-8 it just drops off. Just ordered some vintage taper pots to try to remedy it but with how beautiful it was wired I was just disappointed they would add a lot that is so unuseable
10/10 for tone and quiet operation
by Andy -
I put one of these very easy to install, pre wired pickguards into a 1986 Japanese made fender strat. The tone difference was phenomenal. I didn’t know what I was missing. The quiet coil is very quiet indeed. Feel like your strat is a bit enemic with the factory pups? Throw one of these bad boys on there. Instant boutique tone and dramatically reduced hum is your reward. I will use mojotone again and again after this first purchase. 10/10
