New from GFS- The "JH. EXP" Set!" The latest creation from the GFS Labs-
The Jimi set features reverse stagger- makes those Strat power chords hotter and thicker!! Jimi didn't flip a righty guitar around to play lefty 'cause it looked cool- the reverse stagger creates a slightly stronger "A" string and a slightly smoother "B" string- subtle but powerful.
Besides the cool features, these are based on our finest Strat pickups! We've taken our popular vintage Alnico pickups and added real fiber bobbins, authentic 42 gauge plain enamel wire, cloth leads, even premium German alnico rod magnets
We have spared no expense in designing these pickups-with all the vintage accouterments:
For that round, sweet, fat vintage Strat tone with plenty of bite. Custom designed to provide all the great vintage tone with an amazingly complex mid-high balance and THUNDEROUS low end. Going back and forth between these and a "VERY EXPENSIVE" set of "Boutique" pickups it was easy to notice the added sparkle, low end Womp and Stevie Ray "swamp" tone with the GFS pickups!

I've installed about a bazillion pickups in Strats in the last 25 years, and I assure you that these pickups can hang with the best of the "Overwound Boutique" handmade pickups out there- really?.
Wound just hot enough- Bridge 6.0K, Mid 5.5K, Neck 5.2K. Chose each single pickup individually, or go for all three for the calibrated set. To create a "Humbucking" effect, the middle pickup is reverse wound- now positions 2 and 4 on your 5-way are NOISELESS.
