These pickups are modeled off the Fullerton era reissue Strat pickups found in USA reissues and also early JV Stratocasters. I wind these the same as the original ’82 USA versions with 42 AWG plain enamel wire on red and white bobbins. Fender pickup magnets were traditionally polarized north up pre 1960 and my Fullertons follow this tradition. These pickups produce a bright clean vintage ’60s – ’70s tone clean and break up nice with a bit of drive.
