We can also do any custom color of pickguard loaded with any pickups with any custom wiring needs. For example, you can combine Fralin pickups with any Fender or Duncan pickups; or add a Duncan liberator system or 1-3 mini toggle switches (like 7 function Gilmour switch, or the phase inverting switch, or a coil split push pull pot, or a Fender S1 system, adding a bassplate or vintage shielding etc) for more versatile wiring (extra charges may apply).

They clean up well by rolling off volume without losing clarity or fatness. Vintage Tone for Modern Times. The 1959 Blues Strat set was inspired by a couple of amazing sets from the late 1950s. This is the period of time in which they switched from the more twangy grade III Alnico magnets to grade V Alnico’s. This change delivered a fatter and tighter bottom-end while also increasing the overall dynamic range. We used these late-50’s Strat’s as a tonal starting point. Using special materials along with our proprietary techniques, we’ve added enhanced dynamics and increased sustain. These attributes will allow you to hear previously hidden harmonics from your guitar. These are tonal differences that you’ll immediately notice. These are the Best Strat Pickups for Bluesy tone. Many Blues players own this set but many other guitarists have added warmth and dynamics to their Strat with these incredible pickups.
