VINTAGE HOTS: THE ULTIMATE SET OF PICKUPS FOR VINTAGE TONE.

Vintage Hot Pickups: our best selling single coil set. Musicians looking for a sparkling, bright, and open sound will love the sound of Vintage Hot pickups. These pickups offer a 50’s era-authentic sound, for direct replacement in a Fender® Stratocaster or other single-coil equipped guitar. Vintage Hots are fatter sounding that our Real 54’s, but not as dark as our Blues Specials. Wound with 42-gauge Formvar wire and AlNiCo V magnets, Vintage Hots sound smooth, balanced, and beautiful.

SOUND:

When playing clean, Vintage Hots sparkle and sound very open and clear without sounding “tinny” or glassy. Vintage Hots sound big and wide, with an even balance of Bass, Middle, and Treble. With distortion, the tone cuts through and while still remaining very dynamic and thick with a clear low-end and a sharp attack. Single notes cut through with ease while chords have excellent string-to-string definition. Players can expect wonderful clarity, and string definition with Vintage Hot Pickups: a truly versatile pickup.

FEATURES:

  • 42 Gauge Heavy Formvar Wire, With Beveled Magnets
  • Clear bass strings with nice airy treble strings.
  • Full sound without sounding overly harsh or bright
  • Our Stock set features a 5% overwound Bridge to match the output of the Neck and Middle
  • Made by hand, one at a time with USA-made parts

TECHNICAL INFORMATION:

Hand wound with 42 gauge Heavy Formvar wire, beveled AlNiCo V magnets and cloth leads. We recommend using 250K Pots with these pickups. The neck and middle pickups are average 50’s specs, and the bridge pickup is just hot enough to have the same output as the neck and middle pickups. The pickups come with your choice of White, Black, Yellow (Aged White), or Green covers.

    Vintage Hot’s w/Bass Plate are among the best Strat pickups in marketplace and best $260.00 tonal investment you can make. They chime, sparkle and growl….great pickups!!

    After two years of searching for the right set of strat pickups I finally broke for a set of these. I have wanted these for a while but went down the road every time the idea came to mind. Not this past weekend. I have not yet installed the base plate, will being doing that soon. My tele has a set of pickups that will stay in it forever, AND NOW my stratocaster has a set of pickups that will stay in it for ever. Thank you Lindy this guitar sounds the way a stratocaster should sound in my head. Also I went with the blender option which is a must in my book. I had the Gilmore switch in and its like that with a whole lot more options. Couldn’t be happier, had the chance to speak with Lindy on the phone as well some time ago amazingly good advice and tremendously friendly. You will not find customer service like that anywhere. His work is worth every penny. Thanks a million.
