We’ve heard a lot of people say that you can’t get vintage tone from new pickups. Everyday our pickups prove the nay-sayers wrong.  Don’t take our word for it, just listen to what the Pro’s say….

Ford Thurston, the Nashville based session and touring guitarist who most recently has been touring with Bonnie Bishop is no stranger vintage tone.  He owns many vintage guitars.  He was growing unhappy with the tone of his all original 1966 Fender Strat.  After ripping out the original pickups and installing our 1959 Blues Strat set, he was amazed.  He said, “My Strat never sounded so vintage”, then added “These pickups are really old sounding and really agree with my 1959 Princeton”.

Dynamic, Warm & Clear - Blues Tone.

Are your Stratocaster® Pickups just not Blue enough for you? Continuing to use the wrong pickups for your style can be extremely frustrating.

We’ve created the best vintage voiced Strat pickups for terrific Blues tone.  Just because your guitar is equipped with the best pickups for Bluesy tone doesn't mean you can venture into the realm of other styles.  The Tone Specific Blues Strat set will sound great for just about any type of music. 

Aaron Lebos, the immensely talented Jazz-Fusion Guitarist out of the Miami Florida area uses our 1959 Blues Strat in his Jeff Beck Strat.  He's tried other pickups in that Strat, but the 1959 Blues Strat set gives him that warm and dynamic tone that works great for any style he chooses to play.

Vintage Tone for Modern Times.

This set was inspired by a really terrific 1959 set.  Our painstaking design and testing process has yielded pickups that that sound great with tube amps, pedals, solid state amps, digital devices and even software. 

Tonal Details:

* Pickups are made to sound a little fatter than early vintage pickups, without losing clarity
* Bridge pickup is stronger to cut the mix and drive the amp without losing the “Straty-ness”
* Middle is RWRP to eliminate hum in positions 2 & 4
* Neck Pickup “stays together” & won't not get muddy when overdriven.
* They clean up well by rolling off volume without losing clarity or fatness.

 

Huge Tone. Huge Sweet Spot.

Our pickups are designed to sound great in the guitar in which they are installed. Whether you like to put them closer to the strings our further away, your tone will remain dynamic, warm and touch-sensitive.  These pickups let the sounds in your head shine through the speaker with sweet tone and singing sustain. 

They make a good guitar sound great and a great guitar sound amazing. More than a few top pro's have reported a huge improvement by dropping these into their vintage guitars.

They are directly between you and your amp and interact in a very musical way.  You can produce an endless amount of tone by changing your pick-attack and picking location. Adjusting your volume and tone knobs opens up all kinds of doors in exploring the tonal pallet of these pickups. There is no need for tricky wiring gimmicks when you have a set of pickups of this caliber.

We welcome you to join us on this path. If you are thinking about Great Blues Tones………….Think Tone Specific!
