The Hot Stack Plus for Strat is our high output noiseless bridge pickup that gives you big output, and lots of midrange harmonics. Designed specifically for bridge position, the high output coils, and alnico 5 rods deliver a full, punchy sound that will add versatility to any Strat, while retaining traditional looks. Chords will sound full and rich, while single notes will cut through much more easily. 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 cancelation. You get all of the great qualities a classic Strat pickup, and none of the hum. Pair with our Custom Stack Plus Strat and Vintage Hot Stack Plus Strat.Hand built in Santa Barbara, CA, the Hot Stack Plus uses hand ground alnico 5 rod magnets, and comes with a splittable 3-conductor lead wire to give you access to true single coil operation. Each is wax potted for squeal free performance.
