Bare Knuckle Pickups Pre-Wired Pickguard for Strat, Mother's Milk Pickups, Parchment


Manufacturer's Description

The Mother's Milk Single Coil

Mother’s Milk is a bright and punchy mid '60s voiced Strat coil set; solid bass response, a dynamic, woody character and with a fantastic snap in the high-end.

The Mother's Milk single coils are a combination of the larger diameter Alnico V magnetic rod of the late '50s and the introduction of 42AWG plain enamel wound coils with the CBS takeover at Fender. The hand-bevelled magnets and scatter-wound coils produce a tighter, deeper bottom end with clear, full highs that really sing when overdriven and never sound thin or brittle. Mid-range is hollow and woody, with a little more grit and edge compared to Heavy Formvar wound coils, for a crisp clean tone and more distinctive blues rock voice. As with all the Strat sets the bridge coil is wound slightly hotter for improved balance; vintage cloth 'push back' hookup is standard and there is a choice of stock or RWRP mid-coil.


Country, Blues, Funk, Indie, Reggae, Pop & Classic Rock


Well suited to rosewood board and warmer Alder and Ash body Strats.
