Rene Martinez was originally Stevie Ray Vaughan's guitar tech. He also worked with Eddie Brickell, Mick Jones of Foreigner, Clint Black, Prince, The Moody Blues, Jimmie Vaughan, Carlos Santana, and currently John Mayer. Mojotone is excited to work with such a renowned luthier to develop the new Rene Martinez "Texas" Strat® Pickups.
The magnets are customized Alnico III in the neck and middle and Alnico V in the bridge to give a full and balanced tone. You get that clean, ultra clear neck and middle tone that lets your amp shape your tone, while the bridge pickup is hotter with more girth and punch, and a sonic clarity that cuts through with attitude. The coils are calibrated from neck to bridge for an even volume throughout the switching.
Be the first in your town to own a set designed by such a renowned luthier. These come stock with staggered magnets with a raised D specifically for unwound 3rd string sets. RWRP middle position to be hum-cancelling in positions 2 and 4. Vacuum potted coils.

Best Strat Pickups These are as good as you are going to get! Articulate, sweet top end, tight low end... a single strum and can clearly hear each note ring out. I am amazed at how good they sound. The neck is so smooth and the bridge has a bite to it, but they are perfectly balanced. Perfect! Buy them! Now!

Glorious! The best strat pickups period! Like the other guy said, I'm surprised there aren't tons of reviews about these. Get them! You WILL be surprised how good they are!

Home Run Crisp bottom end response, tight bass strong response, with a clean high string attack that responds faster than stock or even the custom shop pair. I am surprised you don't have more reviews - These are GREAT.
