‘The Black Strat’
From our ‘Inspired by’ Stratocaster Pickups Series
Single Pickup or Set of 3 Pickups
Our tribute to a legendary Strat set! The Black Strat set is the most requested custom order from our customers and has been a huge pleasure for us to put together. The result of countless hours of research into the engine room behind a classic Strat, we’ve matched the outputs and wire choices to this original ‘Frankenstein set’ exactly and with our hand winding recipe, those of you seeking to nail this classic tone will be delighted with the resulting sound. We had some scepticism at first about that huge bridge output: “Will it be too much for the neck and middle?!” Our first play confirmed we had nothing to worry about – the neck has that classic Formvar warmth, the middle gives biting twang for rhythm work and the transition to the bridge for those towering solos is a smooth one. A lot of fun to play!
