Vintage Strat Pickups Hybrid Alnico V
The top end Ironstone vintage Strat pickups Hybrid Alnico V style features resistances of 9.0K Ohm ‘Super Hot’ Bridge and 7.7K Ohm Neck and Middle configuration. The tone is not so much an artist as an era! Think classic late 60’s, early 70’s Fender & artist like Hendrix, Gallagher & Trower.
Like all of the Ironstone Stratocaster pickup range, the Hybrids share the ‘family’ warm vintage tone set. The resistance configuration of Ironstone’s Strat pickups Hybrid set means makes them the hottest pickup in the range, with that whopping high output bridge. But like the Platinums they are also able to give very good clean tone if played with a little sensitivity. Because of their excellent responsiveness, they are superb all rounder. As a result of specifically tailored pole piece stagger, there is a wonderful volume balance across the strings .
The hybrids also benefit from Beeswax / Paraffin wax potting for 25 minutes like the best vintage pickups.
As all of the Ironstone Strat pickups, the Hybrids come complete with all required mounting hardware (and are also supplied with a length of latex mounting tubing for you to cut to your own requirements), and colour code wiring identification.
They are available with either White, Cream (Aged White), or Black covers.
Replacement cover sets are also available in White, Cream (Aged White), or Black. These enable easy updating of guitar colour schemes or when moving pickups to another guitar body. See Stratocaster pickup covers
