'59 Clone Strat® Pickup
** Winner of the PREMIER GUITAR 5-Way Frenzy: Vintage-Style Strat Pickup Review Roundup**HERE
From the Premier Guitar Roundup Review:
"...If Strat pickups were cats, the other sets would snarl. This one purrs. This ’59 Clone set may be too restrained for some, but for those who appreciate the deep, baked-in character of old guitars, this set is the one to beat."
Mojotone has cloned the original 1959 Strat® pickups that recreate the unmistakable 1959 tone. These pickups are an important part of the evolution of guitar electronics and we knew we needed to recreate them in the most ideal way possible. We copied a specific set of original 1959 Strat® pickups that really caught our attention and stood out as something very special.
Each coil is handwound to the exact same specifications. We painstakingly went out of our way to use the exact same materials and manufacturing methods. Sand cast Alnico 5 beveled magnets, vintage-spec heavy Formvar coil wire and lightly wax potted just like the originals.
These have amazing warmth and clarity that absolutely nail that 1959 Strat® sound.
Middle (RWRP): 6.2K

Like many folks, I own a lot of guitars. These '59 Clone pickups turned my least favorite CS Strat into my favorite.

I order the set of 3 in a pre-wired pick guard and I am VERY happy with both the pickups and the professional wiring job with high quality components throughout. The PUs are exactly as advertised and described by others, I previously had a bridge pickup that was so hot it was unusable. That problem was immediately fixed and all three have a classic lower output / warmer tone, which gives me more dynamics since you can attack when desired and they aren't overwhelmed - just agree to bite a bit more with you. and love the wiring on the vol knob, rolls back and tone is unchanged (no loss of high-end). The folks at Mojotone really know what they are doing - thanks!
