Tony Partridge - Ironstone Electric Guitar Pickups
“All I can say is Brilliant, I installed the plate into my 1996 squire Strat and wow what a difference. I was considering buying a Fender Strat ,not now. A friend who is a blues man tried it out . It took me 4 hours to get the guitar back, and as for the price I don’t think it can be beaten. Thank you for the beautiful tone.”
A fully loaded Gilmour 'Black Strat' Stratocaster scratchplate assembly with unique custom pickup switching. Assembled with your choice of any Ironstone Stratocaster pickups. Leaving just a simple 3 wire connection to your guitar, the scratchplate showcases both the original tone of your Ironstone pickups and adds 'Bridge in Series' and 'Neck in Parallel' switching to the normal 5 way selector, a total of 10 different tones. Colour options available for plate, pickup covers and controls.
Scratchplate now available with 'Bridge Blend' option as an alternative to the standard Neck in parallel functionality (at no extra cost). Both options get you the classic Gilmour 'bridge and neck in parallel' tones, just by different switching! For more details, check out the Gilmour Scratchplate Wiring page, or contact us via the contact page for more details.
Please note; We will not be building plates over the period from Friday June 21st to July 7th inclusive. Any new scratchplate build orders received over that period will be actioned w/c July 8th.

Bass Guitar Pickups
"Plenty of punch and good note clarity even with the flat wound strings that I use for blues/country rock"
These Jazz Bass pickups are 'old school' construction, with fibre bobbins, Alnico V magnets and vintage push-back wiring. The result is a warm vintage sound, but with the 7.3K bridge and 7.1K neck delivering a clarity of tone that balances rich full bass with crisp treble detail. Also separately available is the Jazz Bass Dummy coil system, a simple solution to the normal Jazz Bass hum issue.
