Aggressive. Beefy. Hum-Free.

Our brand-new Split Steel Poled Strat Bridge is a hum-cancelling Strat Bridge replacement. It features steel pole pieces, like our Steel Pole 42 and 43, but without the hum. This pickup has an aggressive and beefy midrange, and a nice attack, making it a nice bright pickup with a little more “grit”.

Our manufacturing process allows us to achieve unparalleled quality control. Steel Pole Pickups consist of a precision injection mold and USA-Made Steel Screws. We use aggressive USA-Made magnets to make this model scream. Each bobbin is carefully inspected and cleaned before winding.
 
We wind each pickup by hand, one at a time. Each pickup is wound using our proprietary “Sectioning” technique. This gives the pickup a sweet, clear tone. Finally, we wax-pot the pickup to preserve the pickup, and prevent microphonic.

FeaturesFEATURES:

  • Noiseless, Fat And Full Strat Bridge Tone
  • Fender Size, Original Lindy Fralin Design
  • Strong and bold – lots of midrange and snarl
  • USA-made Ceramic Magnets for aggressive tone and output
  • Adjustable Steel Pole pieces for fine-tuning string balance
  • Hand-wound with our “Sectioning” technique for unique, dynamic tone
  • Hand-built for unrivaled quality control
  • 10-Year Warranty on manufacturing defects

SoundSound:

The emphasized midrange makes this pickup a perfect companion in your bridge position. Full and rich-sounding, this pickup still has a lot of clarity and brightness, sounding perfect on 250K pots. This pickup has more attack than most Strat pickups, with a “harder” top-end. It does not have traditional Fender “Sparkle”, instead, is more in-line with a P-90. It’s a lot cleaner and more articulate than our Hum-Cancelling P-90s. This pickup will still push your amp hard and break up easy!

Finally, Split Steel Pole Pickups are for those who need the most output out of their Strat, without the hum. If you’re looking for something different, these may be right for you. Also, if your current pickups are too bright or thin, you will love these. These tend to be thicker sounding, and very aggressive.

FAQFAQ’S:

  1. Why is this pickup only offered in a Bridge Position? Bending on the G string will cause a drop in volume on the Neck and Middle, but not the Bridge. It makes it a perfect aggressive pickup for the bridge position.
  2. How will this pickup differ from a standard Strat pickup? Because of the Ceramic, the Steel Pole pickups have a harder and more aggressive treble than the softer, more sparkly treble of a normal Strat pickup with Alnico magnets. The Ceramic will cause this pickup to sound slightly more aggressive in the midrange, and will be darker.
  3. How far away from the strings does the pickup need to be? Push your Low E String down at the highest fret. Measure from the top of the pole piece to the bottom of the string. Ideal starting location should be 1/8? on the bass string, and 1/16? on the treble string, when the High E string is pushed down at highest fret. You can adjust the stagger from there with the pole pieces.

    This bridge pickup is fantastic – perfect for what I wanted. Had a set of Vintage Hots with the plate on the bridge pickup – all of which were great, albeit with the normal limitations of it being a Strat. But switching the V-Hot bridge for the split steel pole makes my Nash 57 Strat cover a LOT more ground (who needs an HSS Strat with one of these!), while retaining the clarity and tonal advantages of having high-end pickups like Fralins. I was concerned the split steel pole strat bridge might overpower the V-Hots in the neck and middle, but they balance perfectly. Lots more mid-range, but in exactly the way I wanted – sounds thick and natural, not over-compressed. Great clarity, articulation, and thickness – exactly what I needed. I can now get the Jimi-ish rhythm sounds out of the neck and middle pickups, and bluesier SRV and Ruffner sounds, plus the prettier in-between sounds – all the way through to screaming thick lead tones (who needs a humbucker!) and about as close to Malcolm and Angus rhythm sounds as I’ve ever heard out of a Strat. It sounds like a P90 without any of the downsides crossed with a great Strat bridge without the downsides of that – lots more mid-range
