Our Special S Series offers a higher output Strat® pickup
design with a deep thick tone, round highs, and smooth
bottom that approaches a "Gibsonish" attack and sustain.
Less quack than other, lower output strat pickups when
in positions 2 and 4. Output is noticeably higher and
will break up most amps a little faster and harder than
typical Strat pickups. Vintage style cloth covered lead
wire. Middle is RWRP for humbucking operation in
positions 2 and 4. Neck 6.7K, Middle 7.1K, Bridge 7.6K
Choose from Flat- and Staggered-pole styles

L-R: White, Parchment, Creme, Black
