Our most heralded set! Wound to provide a balance of highs and mid range to give a real big Strat® sound. While the sound may be big and fat, the tone is clear and warm allowing players to really push their amps.

The ’59 Overwound provide similar characteristics to the 1956-1957 set but with a seasoned touch of mid range giving it a hotter and bigger sound, much like our favorite from Austin!

The set, like our others, comes calibrated to offer a balance across your Strat®. The middle is reverse wound/reverse polarity to offer hum canceling in the notch positions 2 and 4 as well as that sweet “quack” tone.

    High quality pickups with an affordable price tag. Very well constructed. I love the neck and middle pickups on my Strat now! Excellent clarity and depth out of these. Great pickups from a great company.

    The is what I like best about Planet Tone — the expertise. Never built a Nashville tele so I needed advice on the middle pickup. PT took the time to understand the sound I wanted and put together a set that lights it up.
