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. These pickups produce a bright clean vintage ’60s – ’70s tone clean and break up nice with a bit of drive.
