An amazing hand crafted set designed for Strat® players who love metal tone. A power pickup with the tone and balance of a Strat®. Beefy mids at all positions and features a high gain bridge and screaming neck and middle. Perfect for any shred session or intense powerful crunch or grinding riffs.

The neck and middle, closer in output but well calibrated. The mids are stronger and are balanced with a nice top end blend for thicker leads and bigger bottom end. The sound will be hot, powerful with a nice thick beefy tone.

The bridge is a beast and wound close to 14k. It features ample power for screaming bridge work, leads or chunky riffs. Pumped with mids, this is not your dainty vintage 50s bridge.

The set offers a perfect amount of power for those who like to go direct into high gain amps without using pedals for increased juice and power.

Great for most heavier styles including metal, shred, punk, and hot blues!

A single coil Strat pickup for Hard Rock players.

After watching the videos on youtube I was intrigued and ordered an American Metal bridge pickup for my SSS Mexi Strat. I love my strat but never played it much since I love to play hard rock and while the Seymour Duncan SSL5 that was in there has a high output it just couldn't cut it for hard rock. After installation, I plugged into a Marshall and was really impressed at the tones coming out of my guitar! Now it can hang with hard rock yet it still sounds like a strat when it needs to. I highly recommend wiring one of the tone pots to the bridge, as dialing back the top end helps you nail that tone with lots of distortion.
