There is no mistaking the scooped mid-range tone from a low output set. The near absence of mid range provides a unique Strat® tone. Not only is it still warm but very clean, bright and punchy. A couple of players over time have epitomized this tone – players like Rory Gallagher and John Mayer come to mind – this is our offering to capture that spirit of tone.

Low output means ultra clarity at high gain settings. Low output players have discovered that sparkling crystal clear tone at super high volumes. No muddying up here!

The middle pickup is reverse wound/reverse polarity (rw/rp) to offer hum canceling in positions 2 and 4 and that incredible “quack” tone.

    These are amazing pickups. I was trying to find a good, inexpensive pickup that sounds very scooped like John Mayer’s BLK1 strat. THIS IS IT. Very clean and have a nice vintage vibe.

    These sound amazing. Replaced my Texas Specials. Nails that SRV tone. Shipped quickly also. I’ll definitely be purchasing more in the future. I’m sold!

    Had these 62 mid scooped for a couple of months the project fell apart. So I finally got the guitar to put them in yesterday. Crystal clear clean and with overdrive incredible. funky bluesy jazzy all of thee above.I’ve got the Elite Pro set, 62 Mid Scooped set. These Planet Tone pickups great at a great price. One more set, 1 more strat haven’t decided shouldn’t be hard though 👍
