This is THE sound you've been searching for - The famous John Mayer Strat tone.
No, not the sound of the bland 'Big Dipper' pickups from the Fender production-line signature models, we're talking about the AMAZING Fender Custom Shop Stratocasters the John's records have been recorded with and that he's toured with extensively.
The pickups that were handwound for Mr Mayer's John Cruz Masterbuilt Strat are the stuff of legend, and our good pal Chris Klein is the first (and only) pickup winding guru on earth who has managed to nail the sound and the feel.
We love the Klein Jazzy Cat pickups and as soon as we started distributing Klein product, this became our best-selling set straight away.
Jazzy Cat Stratocaster Pickup Set - "We use these in our Black One Strat" Same Outputs, Same Inductance, Same Stagger. Scooped Mid Range Tone.
The closest that one can get to Euphoria in tone.
We have spent countless hours researching, to obtain all the information necessary to build a set of pickups that gets this Tone. We went through several dozen test sets in the development, fine tuning each to get as close as possible. We also had to order special magnets to stock for this set. The neck has a very unique stagger while the middle & bridge have the same stagger, but it is as well is different from traditional vintage stagger.
These pickups are lower in output (not low output) providing that scooped mid range tone, very clean, while still full in the low end, provides that extreme crystal clean quack which is a signature characteristic to this set. The set has Hand Beveled Magnets, wax potted, & RWRP.
Extensive testing was done on a Two Rock amp we have here at the shop and with just a touch of reverb from the amp it achieves tonal euphoria.
These pickups also put your guitar in the tonal range so you can get some killer Hendrix and SRV tones. This set also is great for playing some smokehouse blues, so don't think you will be limited in your tone for playing this set.
