Stratocaster pickup set Rob's 59 specials

€159.00

This set is modeled after the pickups present in the famous fiesta red Fender Stratocaster, the first Strat in Britain and probably Europe. The pickups were certainly not stock for the era. They had a specific staggering of the magnet poles and of course the typical sound we al know so well. Some specifications:

- authentic vintage heavy Formvar wire

- irregular wound in the pattern correct for the fifties

- number of winds and tension of wire as common these years

- hand bevelled magnet poles

- potted lightly with 20% beeswax

- all hand made with the same materials as used in the late fifties
