Dirtier, Grittier, Alternative Mustang / Duo-Sonic Sounds
Initially designed for Jaguars guitars, they're now available for Mustang & Duo-Sonic too - Designed for players who wanted something darker, grittier, something more savage & physical from their guitars, but keeping a tight, razor focus to really cut through the band mix - Not a traditional rock, indie or blues sound, something much more sleazier, aggressive & visceral. Essentially the idea was to design a raw, more primal sounding pickup to work with the existing Mustang / Duo-Sonic wiring for pure alternative sounds and styles of playing. Much tighter, much more focussed sounds than my Sonic '60s, these were designed specifically to play loud an dplay dirty.
A single plated steel blade sits at the heart of the design inside a much more tightly scatterwound coil of thinner 43awg coil wire, and I experimented with a variety of magnet grades and sizes until finally working on a duo of custom square bar Alnico 5s.
Available in a stark black or white open face design, the new Mustang / Duo-Sonic Dark Line pickups are direct drop-in replacements, designed to turn that Fender or Squier Mustang / Duo-Sonic into a much more powerful guitar - I spent a long time getting the design of these just right, putting them aside, coming back to them - a real labour of love.
