Vintage Strat Pickups Platinum Alnico V
The Ironstone vintage Strat pickups Platinum Alnico V style, features resistances of an 8.5k Ohm ‘spanking hot’ Bridge and 7.4k Ohm hot middle and neck configuration, as well as 43 AWG windings (as the Texas Specials).
Like all of the Ironstone Stratocaster pickup range, the Platinums share the ‘family’ warm vintage tone set. The resistance configuration of Ironstone’s Strat pickups Platinum set means they are at the hotter end of the range. They have a wide dynamic range, which means they are extremely responsive to playing styles. Use some sensitivity and they will rewards you with very good clean tones. Dig in with the pick and you will get an increasingly grittier output.
As all of the Ironstone Strat pickups, the Platinums 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
