Inspired by the alternative music scene of the mid-to-late '80s this is my overwound take on the Strat pickup. The flat Alnico 2 polepieces are slightly warmer sounding than Alnico 5 but with the taller, stronger magnets, I've managed to keep much of the traditional bright tone and mix it with more of an aggressive, biting output, great for really driving an amp or running effects.

The Alt '88 range has been a real labour of love and these pickups and have gone through numerous changes to get them right. A great Strat rhythm or lead pickup if you want more bite and a modern aggressive attack.

The Alt '88 Strat Middle can also be RW/RP if required for hum cancelling in positions 2 & 4.
