Seymour Duncan Calibrated Alnico II Pro Staggered APS-1-SET Summary
This 3-pickup set delivers all of the chime and bell tone enjoyed by Stratocaster players in the 50s, but with a sweeter sounding treble attack.
This is a full set of the Alnico 2 Pro Staggered single coils for Stratocaster. They use hand ground alnico 2 rod magnets with a traditional staggered pattern, and heavy Formvar mag wire with a special wind pattern to produce that classic bouncy tone youd expect from the best 50s Strat pickups. The treble attack is soft and sweet, the mids feel just slightly scooped, while the low end has a vintage sponginess. Chords have a nice smoothness and single notes have a singing, musical character. This calibrated set includes a reverse woundreverse polarity middle pickup for noiseless operation in positions 2 & 4. Like all of our vintage Fender style single coil pickups, we start with the right color and thickness of Forbon flatwork. Along with the period correct magnet stagger, these pickups come complete with waxed and tinned cloth pushback hook-up wires and traditional keyed bottom plates. We hand file the flatwork, assemble, and lacquer the bobbins just as it was done during Fenders Golden Age and wax pot for squeal free use.
