The Hot for Strat will deliver more output and midrange than your Stratocaster ever has. This pickup replaces the classic high end sparkle with a humbucker-like cut that makes your chords sound explosive, and your solos jump out like never before. The sound is warmer and hotter than a traditional Strat pickup, and is rich with punchy harmonics. The raised flat alnico 5 rod magnets are taller for a stronger and deeper magnetic field that increases the output, and this overwound coil delivers additional power and warmth. Great for getting heavy sounds from a Strat. Combine with an SSL-3 in the neck and an SSL-3 RWRP in the middle for a complete set, or try SSL-5s in the neck and middle for a more versatile setup.Starting with the modern oval bottom flatwork that fits in any guitar routed for single coils, the bobbin is built with hand ground alnico 5 magnets, lacquered for stability, then wound and wax potted for squeal free performance.
