The Vintage Hot Stack Plus is a noiseless strat pickup designed for the player who wants a little beefier tone but does not want a high output pickup. The tone is bright and bouncy, but with just a little more of everything. Chords will feel more powerful, and single notes will ring through with just a bit more authority than they would with a vintage output single coil. This pickup is designed to look like a traditional Strat single coil, and works great in neck, middle, or bridge position, and its dead quiet.
Back in the 80s, we patented a special bottom coil that actually injects negative hum into the pickup circuit and at the end of the production process, we fine tune each pickup for maximum noise cancellation. Pair with our Custom Stack Plus Strat in the bridge and Classic Stack Plus Strat in middle position for a punchy, versatile, hum-free Strat set.
Hand made in Santa Barbara, CA, the Vintage Hot Stack Plus uses alnico 5 rod magnets, a tappable 3-conductor lead wire, and is wax potted for squeal free operation.
