Mustang / Duo-Sonic Pickups

Mustang & Duo-Sonic Pickups - Made in Manchester

Pickups from my Strat range are now available for Mustang & Duo-Sonic guitars. Have a look below. Due to the shorter scale length, the pickups will sound a little warmer in your Mustang / Duo-Sonic than their Strat versions but still with great clarity & string definition.

They're all available open or with Black or White closed covers. You can also order them in standard strat covers if you like.

Custom Handwound Replacement Vintage & Modern Mustang / Duo-Sonic Pickups

With custom more Strat-like designs & modern flat pole, hotter & custom variants, I currently make a number of handwound Replacement ustang / Duo-Sonic single coil pickups.

I also make custom designs such as my Strat-90 (Strat sized P90) and my Sonic '60 Pickups to fit the Mustang / Duo-Sonic as well.

I don't have pickups all boxed up ready to send out; each order is custom-made so I can tailor a set of handwound replacement Mustang / Duo-Sonic pickups to suit your own guitar, tone or style of playing.

NOTE: You can order my custom, handwound replacement Mustang / Duo-Sonic pickups with staggered magnets specifically for Left Handed players. Just select this option at the checkout.

Handwound at my workshop here in Manchester.

A warmer Mustang / Duo-Sonic Sound

A great pickup if you want to balance the early '60s tone with a more blusier feel.

The Bridge pickup has a steel baseplates under the pole magnets to shift the resonances toward the lows which combined with the hotter wind, helps to create a warmer bridge tone.

A Warmer, More Blusier Mustang / Duo-Sonic Sound

A higher output vintage pickup set with a combination of Alnico 3 & 5 magnets. Still with great clarity & definition, the classic pickup tones are boosted by the higher output and rounded with the flat magnets. A warmer bridge pickup due to the overwind & custom Alnico 3 magnets really takes you into crunchy blues territory, great for breaking up an amp. Match this with the slightly hotter-than-normal middle & neck pickups gives you a sweet set great for that '70s blues rock voice.

Scatter wound with wax potted coils and custom staggered Alnico 3 & 5 magnets. Medium output. Vintage grey bottom flatwork. Vintage style cloth covered lead wire. A great Mustang / Duo-Sonic pickup.

The Neck Pickup can be RW/RP for hum cancelling in the middle position.

A brighter, attacking late '70s Pickup Set

Inspired by the New Wave/Post Punk era of the late '70s & early '80s, the Red '79 Stratocaster Pickup has that brittle, bright attack associated with much of the music of that era. The lower in output, 42AWG coil wrapped around Custom Alnico 5 magnets gives you that cutting tone great with effects (a little phase, a little chorus ;-). As with the Telecaster Red '79s, I settled on the final designs (after many versions) to create a pickup that has that bright, brittle tone without the ice-pick shrillness of thin, lower wound pickups. To achieve this the coil is wound slightly shorter with a looser scatterwound pattern to achieve the balance I was looking for.

With the staggered magnet the tone is concentrated more around the D & G strings for a spikier attack whereas with the flat pole version the tone is rounded a little more as the tone is spread evenly through all strings.

NOTE: If Red really isn't your thing you can always order it in White or Black vintage String as well (or standard Strat covers) ;-)

The Neck Pickup can be RW/RP for hum cancelling in the middle position.

A Warmer, P90 Design for Mustang / Duo-Sonic Guitars

With its six adjustable pole pieces and dual magnet design, the new Mustang / Duo-Sonic Sized P90 pickup is great if you're after that fat single coil P90 tone. Due to its design of dual bar magnets and pole screws, the tone is warmer & fatter than a standard Mustang / Duo-Sonic pickup. In the middle position you'll stil get the trademark tone, just a fatter, more rounded version. Great for a more blusier style of playing.

As the geometry of the Mustang / Duo-Sonic P90 pickup differs from a standard P90 in terms of width of coil, the tone will be a little brighter but still with the warmth and fatter single coil voice you'd expect from a P90 design. I've designed the P90 Mustang / Duo-Sonic pickup with custom magnets to let the strings vibrate a little more adding to the warmth in the tone.

I've custom designed the bobbins so the pickups will fit standard Mustang / Duo-Sonic pickup covers and the Neck Mustang / Duo-Sonic P90 Pickup can be RW/RP for hum cancelling in the middle position.

NOTE: I can also custom wind you a pickup or set with higher or lower outputs, just get in touch.

Richer Sunds

With handwound coils pressed around the custom magnets and wax potted in a combination of paraffin & beeswax, my new Creamery Sonic '60 Mustang replacement pickups give that richer, musical sound synonimous with the old classic Burns Tri-Sonic® design.

Geometry dictates they won't sound identical to the old 60s classics as the pickups are smaller (standard Strat/Mustang size) and I use my custom made thinner magnets inside the pressed coil, but they do have the richer sound you'd expect.

Strat Sized - Designed to fit a standard Mustang guitar with no modifications needed

Unlike the larger originals, my Sonic '60 pickups have been designed to fit a standard scratchplate & body cavity but with outputs of 7k & 6.3k respectively - created to balance the old vintage sounds with a modern spin they have a richer, warmer, more rounded, musical tone than a standard Mustang pickup set.

With a choice of magnets, you can choose to have a warmer or brighter version. Alnico 2 'holds' the strings a little less, allowing them to vibrate a little more freely giving a perceived slightly warmer, more resonant tone.

Ceramic, being stronger, holds the strings a little more giving a slightly more attacking, slightly brighter, brittle Sound.

Alnico 5 offers a slightly brighter tone than Alnico 2 but a little more rounded than the ceramic option.

Reviews

Reviews of Handwound Stratocaster/Mustang & Duo-Sonic Pickups

Oh my god, your pickups are so clear and powerful. The bass notes are deep and the sustain is incredible. The strat pickups on my 94 are good (Seymour Duncan bridge) but nowhere near yours. Thank you for such a full and clear sounding guitar. Beautiful sound. Really, I am thrilled with them. They are fantastic
Simon Moules
The single coils from the Creamery sound so much more alive and really spur on my playing; from amazing clear bell-like whispering passing notes to tones that could bite the head off an angry Pitbull, the pickups handle it all! My 60’s Classic player Strat sounds so dull in comparison.
Mark Williams
The Strat pickups are exactly what I need ... they show Fender how theirs should sound
Anthony, Moose Guitars
EPIC MATE! they ring out for days - I can't say enough good things. They are so so good. I've never heard a guitar with so much tone. It's the perfect guitar now, the difference between pickups is staggering now!
Allan Hutchison
Nice job. I thought they sounded awesome too - good work. Its good to hear some replacement pickups which aren't just louder. I'll keep sending people your way!
Jack Ellis, Jack's Instrument Services
"Got the new pickup fitted.....it sounds amazing !! Loads off oooomph but still retaining that great "tele" sound...........i love it! Thanks for everything. I'm spreading the word …. First outside gig with new pup yesterday - it sang! Thanks again Jaime!"
Murray McDowell
The Extra-Width Bridge pickup sounds fantastic; crystal clear yet without the 'ice-pick' treble of the pick-up I was replacing. I really like the fact it responds to my playing and it comes to life with a bit of overdrive. I wish I'd gone for the full set, perhaps I'll be back for the missing 2 when I can justify it. Thanks very much for making my guitar warmer and clearer.
James Deane, professional Session Guitarist, Producer & Engineer
I've had a good week to check out how the Classic '64 pickups sound now, and I really like them! I'm fussy too. But these are very detailed and I can hear each note when I play a chord, and complex chords are working very well. The overwinding on the neck pickup has worked out well too, all three pickups sound very even in the guitar. It is ridiculous that USA Strats come with deficient pickups, considering what they cost, but anyway, my guitar is fixed now.
Neil Newton
Awesome mate !!! The reversed middle has a superb sound ... and when i roll the tone back .... WOW !!! Just what i wanted! Cheers again
Murray McDowell
Just had the Classic 64s fitted. Very nice indeed..had some high praise from folk who have heard them
Stuart Russell
Hi Jaime, Just to let you know I have had the pups fitted on my start and that they are absolutely great.
David Parsons
The pickups are fantastic, I am really happy with them! They are so clean and yet powerful, warm and yet with bite, just perfect - thank you.They're SOOOOOOO GOOD!
Lutz E-P
Hi Jaime. Got them installed and they sound sweet - sounded fantastic last night at the gig. Cheers mate.
