Fender Strat™* type pickup with alnico 5 magnets and vintage sound. Particularly suited for guitarists who wish for sustained sounds with clear chord definition. Very responsive with an open, bell-like tone which allows a transparent and detailed reproduction of sounds that might become muddy in connection with effects devices.
The S6 Vintage Custom has six staggered magnets to achieve a perfect string balance. The sound character is very similar to that of the old original pickups. Medium output, typical funky strat sound with a pleasant emphasis on the bright side. Great for pop, funk and country.
