This 3-pickup set delivers all of the Stratocaster chime and bell tone with a sweeter sounding treble attack, and flat alnico 2 rod poles.
This is a full set of our Alnico 2 Pro Flat single coils for Stratocaster. They use flat (non-staggered) hand ground alnico 2 rod magnets and heavy Formvar mag wire with a special wind pattern to produce that classic bouncy tone youd expect from the best 50s Strat pickups. The flat pole pattern is designed to improve string balance and response on guitars that use lighter strings, or have flatter fretboards. The treble attack is soft and sweet, the mids feel just slightly scooped, while the low end has a vintage sponginess. Chords have a nice, smooth feel, and single notes have a singing, musical character. Includes a reverse woundreverse polarity middle pickup for noiseless operation in positions 2 & 4. Aside from the flat pole pieces, we use the same materials to build these as we do for all of our vintage Fender style single coil pickups. We start by assembling the bobbins with the proper color and thickness of hand filed Forbon flatwork and alnico 2 magnets. We then lacquer our bobbins just as it was done during Fenders Golden Age. This pickup comes complete with waxed and tinned cloth pushback hook-up wires and traditional keyed bottom plate. Like all of our pickups, its then potted in our wax formulation for squeal free performance.
