Classic Strat® Pickup
Classic Wound for Strat® represent superb examples of a 50's clear and glassy tone with better balance from string to string, and from pickup to pickup. These are built like vintage 50's pickups with fiberboard bobbins, cloth leads, staggered alnico 5 magnets, and vintage spec heavy formvar wire.
The neck and middle pickups are clear and chimey, while the bridge pickup has excellent output and full body compared to most vintage bridge position pickups. These come stock with hybrid staggered magnets with a raised D specifically for unwound 3rd string sets. RWRP middle position for hum-cancelling in positions 2 and 4. Vacuum potted coils.
Middle (RWRP): 6.2k
Magnet: Alnico 5

You can certainly hear the 60-cycle hum so I wont say its non existent... but its got less noise than the average single coil. What the description says is exactly what you get. Warmth is amazing on thicker gauged strings and the Treble is killer with D'Addario super brights. Even guitarists who have their favorite pickups established love the tone of these bad boys.
