Alnico III / D.C. Output = 6.15k
Slightly hotter than the 57 models while retaining some of the sweetness found on the 54's, these recreations of the 1962 Strat single coil pickups deliver a tone that is throaty and full yet still retains a lot clarity. Load them into a Strat with a rosewood fingerboard, plug into a valve combo that is set to be on the verge of breaking into overdrive and you'll be in blues heaven. The middle position pickup is reverse wound/reverse polarity to achieve noise cancellation when utilizing a 5 way switch. 42 gauge Formvar wire and Alnico III magnets. Wax-potted and ships complete with height screws, rubber tube mounting, cloth-covered wire and a fitted antique white cover.
52mm string spacing (from E to E polepiece centres)
5mm polepiece diameter
83mm total cover length (including tabs for the mounting screws)
18mm cover width
13mm cover depth
76mm mounting screw distance (between centres)

PICKGUARDS: Do not remove the protective cover or place any components on this pickguard until you have made a "dry run" on the instrument. Make sure all mounting holes and pickup cuts are positioned correctly. Pickguard replacement warranty will be void if the protective cover has been removed. Removing the protective film means that the item is not in a re-saleable condition and therefore we cannot accept it back for a refund.
We offer two payment gateways on our website - SagePay and Paypal.
SagePay accepts all major credit and debit cards. All transaction information passed between the WD Music and Sage Pay system is encrypted using 128-bit SSL certificates. No cardholder information is ever passed unencrypted and any messages sent to our servers from Sage Pay are signed using MD5 hashing to prevent tampering. You can be completely assured that nothing you pass to Sage Pay’s servers can be examined, used or modified by any third parties attempting to gain access to sensitive information.
When you pay with Paypal, all information is protected by SSL with an encryption key length of 168 bits (the highest level commercially available). Your personal information is stored on Paypal's servers and heavily guarded, both physically and electronically. To further shield your credit card and bank numbers, Paypal do not directly connect their firewall-protected servers to the internet.
