The Post-Punk / New Wave Inspired Mustang / Duo-Sonic Pickup

Inspired by the New Wave/Post Punk era of the late '70s & early '80s, the Red '79 Mustang / Duo-Sonic 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 (Dependent on Neck Radius of course).

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

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