Our Vintage voiced Stratocaster single coils are built to bring you that Late 50's and 60's sound. Hand wound with Heavy Formvar wire using Alnico 5 magnets to delivery that airy and spanky Stratocaster tone loved by many. The magnets have the early 60"s stagger. The output is calibrated providing perfect volume and tonal balance between all three. These are a definite favourite of mine and our top selling model.

Features:

42awg Heavy Formvar

Neck output: 6.2k

Middle output: 6.2k

Bridge output: 6.5k

Alnico 5 magnets recommended

RWRP middle pickup for hum cancelling

Wax potted for squeal free operation

Choose the No Cover option if you want to use your own covers. This is common as many players strat covers are aged with the instrument keeping the look the same.

VS-61 (Alnico 3 set)

Installed a VS-61 Custom set in a G&L Legacy (Strat-style). Was very much hoping to get back to a vintage sounding, but versatile, single coil instrument - mission accomplished! Kris/Pegcity recommended Alnico 3 magnets with 42 awg Heavy Formvar wire, wax potted, reverse wound middle pickup, bridge pickup base plate, cream covers. It's a very special combination of pickups, surprisingly quiet as single coils go (it's hum-cancelling in positions 2 & 4). Beautiful warm to bright clean tones, funky "quack" middle positions, to exceptional overdriven timbres from blues-rock to jazz fusion and beyond. Also works very well with the G&L's P.T.B. system (passive treble and bass controls). Exceptionally pleased, and there's been myriad replacement designs in this instrument.

Absolutely love the VS61. Super impressed with the tone of this pickup. Compared to the one I replaced it"s like night and day. Way to go Kris!

Vintage Strat Sound

Great pickups with classic strat tones. Kris dropped them off for me, which might make them sound even better.
Paired a neck and mid pair with a Pearly Gates (humbucker) that was already in the bridge position. Getting some great quack and chime sounds, even when mixing with the humbucker.
