THE IRONSTONE JAZZ BASS PICKUPSIronstone Jazz Bass Pickups Alnico V

"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. 

THE IRONSTONE 'GILMOUR' SCRATCHPLATEStratocaster Scratchplate Pickguard Troubleshooting

“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!
