Vintage ’63 Specials
Single Pickup or Set of 3 Pickups
We were fortunate enough to be able to borrow an original ’63 Strat to help us design our Vintage Set and we’re extremely satisfied with how close the aesthetics and tone match the originals. The ’63 Specials are perfect if you want to match a multitude of classic tones with accurate authenticity – everything from Dick Dale Surf to Jimi’s beautiful Red House tone is possible with these pickups depending on your choice of amp and settings. Twang and sweetness are present in spades while also delivering a stunning breakup through crunchier valve amps.
