Vintage Strat Pickups Silver Alnico V

Strat Pickups: Silver

“The Silver Pickups have transformed my Highway One Stratocaster into the Strat I wanted! If you have a Highway One Stratocaster, the Silver pickups will be a revelation, excellent advice, service and product, a tick and a gold star for Ironstone”

This Alnico V configuration is particularly suited to playing that emphasizes warm, vintage Blues or ‘rock’ styles but with the added grunt of the higher Bridge output when you want it. A great entry level pickup in terms of both performance and price.

 

Stratocaster Wiring Colour Code:

Like all of the Ironstone Stratocaster pickup range, the Strat pickups Silver grade share the ‘family’ warm vintage tone set. The resistance configuration of Ironstone’s Strat pickups Silver set means makes them a great general purpose pickup. They have a great clean tone, but with a hotter bridge, so you can dig in with the pick and get a grittier output. Excellent for Classic Rock and cleaner Blues styles.

They are available with either White, Cream (Aged White), or Black covers.

    Just bought the ironstone silver for strat. The guitar I have is a Fender Squire Standard strat. I was not happy with the pu having tried adjusting, adding an orange drop capacitor. So I decided to try the Ironstone Silver pu. I replaced the fenders today, and wow what a fantastic difference in sound and quality. I am as pleased as punch and I will definitely be buying some other produts from Ironstone in the near future. TRY them you will be amazed.M

    • Thanks Michael! That’s answers a question I often get asked; ‘will your Ironstones really make a difference compared to the original manufacturers pickups?’.

  3. Rated 5 out of 5

    I’m usually a fan of Kent Armstrong pickups – as I was on a tight budget I decided to try the Ironstone Silver and I’m really impressed with them – I was looking for a warm tone and I’m totally happy (Comparing them to an American Standard strat I actually prefer the Ironstones!)
    Excellent product I would recommend them without hesitation.
    Cheers.

  4. “Simply the best thing that happened to my strat in 20 years. Excellent.” (From German eBay customer cyycco)

  5. “Great pickups – best I’ve heard for pure vintage strat tones! A+++++”

  6. “Just installed these beauties into my main Strat. Absolutely superb!!!….. ;-)”

  7. “My pups arrived this morning, I fitted them this afternoon and all I can say is wow!
    I’m blown away by the warmth and clarity of these! Awesome product, excellent value, and great customer service. Thanks!”

  9. “Last night I installed these pickups in a 1979 USA hardtail Strat. It’s one I’ve rebuilt out of all genuine parts(but no pick-ups up to this point .I thought I’d try a set of your pickups (a few mates have them and had been really impressed) before spending £200 on a set of 1979 Fenders. These are truly awesome! A little bit hotter than standard so I just wound the pickups down into the body a bit further than usual. I’ve just done side by side comparisons between this guitar and an all original 1978 hardtail. In a pure listening test I can’t tell the difference (and I’ve been doing this a LONG time)! I’m well impressed.”

  10. “Fitted the Silvers to No 2 this morning and the sound is absolutely exceptional. In 50 years of playing and listening I can honestly say I’ve never heard a better sounding Strat, and this is a home assembled partscaster that cost about £160 in total. That probably sounds like an exaggeration but I’m absolutely serious. These pickups nail the sound I was looking for perfectly. Great string definition, extraordinarily expressive, clear as crystal. Nicely responsive to height adjustment to dial in the tone to exactly what you need. I’m gobsmacked.”

  11. “After using the pickups I bought from you over six months ago I got to admit they are as good as any branded name ones.
    They are the best, bell like tones crystal clear but will drive when needs be…..I have used about half a dozen other sets
    inc fender,rio grande,texas spc, and at the moment on one strat i have yours and on the other suhr pickups,
    and yours are as good as if not got the edge on others”
