Our Vintage Blonde Strat style pickups are bright but
smooth. Scooped midrange, full bass with smooth attack,
medium low output sounds glassy, chimey, spanky. Play
soft and get round, smooth tone; hit it hard and the
attack and treble will come forward in the mix. Works
well with overdrives. Alnico 2 flat poles, scattered
wound, wax potted coils. Vintage style cloth covered
lead wire. Middle is RWRP for humbucking operation in
positions 2 and 4.
Dirty Blonde Sets feature the same great neck and middle pickups, but with our Special S bridge substituted for a thicker bridge tone with a bit more output.
Neck 5.6K, Middle 5.8K, Bridge 6K
Choose from Flat- and Staggered-pole styles
