With more than twice the power of a traditional Stratocaster single-coil, the Quarter Pound pickups will transform any Stratocaster into a mean growling beast, bring you a fat, punchy tone with plenty of top end sparkle. These high output Strat pickups will give you big, beefy chords, and single notes will jump out in a way that no other pickup can deliver. The individually hand-polished ¼” diameter alnico 5 magnets help to give it plenty of the high-end sparkle and upper midrange harmonics that make this pickup so special. These bobbins are hand built, dipped in lacquer, then wound and wax potted for squeal free performance. We use modern ‘oval’ Forbon flatwork (non-triangular) which enables the Quarter Pound high output Strat pickups to fit into any guitar that is routed for single coils.
