Good Tone Pickups / Classic S / Blues / Hot Special / 2018 / Guitar For Sale
This is a wonderful replica of the legendary Stratocaster Tone.The Classic S offers that nice glassy definition and twang with that slightly compressed bass and treble what we all adore. We don't make a difference between 50ies and 60ies Sound.Most important is that it sounds harmonic and sensitiv with nice overtones without being hard or harsh. But this guy really sounds authentic !
CLASSIC S BLUES
More Midrange and Bass but with a lively treble and twang for a loud and fat tone. Ideal for rounder harmonic crunch sounds like SRV or Hendrix style playing. Strongly recommended for neck, middle or bridge position
HOT S SPECIAL
Hot sound with more bottom, low midrange alike a PAFbut still twangy and clear enough to cope clean setting. Listen to Brian Adams song "It's only Love", this is exactly the sound of the Hot Special. Recommended for Bridge Position but also suitable on Neck position for that heavy Strat sounds à Malmsteen or SRV on anabolica.

Generally GOOD TONE Pickups don't need extra wax potting because our special winding technique creates high feedback suppression.
However, we offer wax potting on request and at no extra charge.
We strongly recommend wax potting to customers who play loud settings with lots of gain and compression.
Players who operate with low gain settings will be amazed how open, dynamic and lively our unwaxed GOOD TONE pickups respond through their amps.
