The Elite Pro pickup set is the ideal set for the musician who wants something that has the warmth and dynamics of a vintage pickup but with an edge and flavor that is distinctive and noteworthy. A pickup set that turns heads when played clean and opens jaws when pushed with gain.

The set offers tone that is dynamic and yet uncanny in flavor. The Elite Pro set offers warmth, vibrancy and dynamics mixed with a tone voicing that is hard to, not only describe, but hard to beat. One can say its the perfect hybrid set between '50s and '60s, yet its more. A set that must be experienced!

The neck is wound perfectly to 5.8k much like a traditional '50s pickup by with just a few extra winds to give the pickup flavor with a thick robust tone, great for fat creamy leads or bigger rhythm but does not lack that high end clarity or chime. The middle pickup is also calibrated, wound RW/RP for hum canceling and balanced to give a good compliment to both the bridge and neck pickups. The bridge is slightly overwound to 6.65k, mild by today's standards, yet bold and powerful for great lead tone or creamy blues solos!

Choose from Alnico V magnets (for more drive) or Alnico II magnets (for more sustain) or go for Alnico II at neck and middle with Alnico V at bridge for a total versatile and modified custom shop experience. These are wound with our special Heavy Enamel Natural Copper wire to give this pickup that perfect 50s/60s warm hybrid tone!

Features:


  • Neck @ 5.85k
  • Middle @ 6.15k
  • Bridge @ 6.65k
  • Vintage Cloth Leads
  • Black Fiber Bobbins
  • Choose from Alnico II or V Beveled Magnets

great blues tone

I must say that I've been looking for new pickups for my '86 MIJ Tele HSS for a while. I have never replaced any pickups in any of my guitars and was ready to invest in new ones. I watched a lot of you tube videos from most all of the custom manufacturers I could find and spoke with quite a few as well. After seeing the video on these by Lucas Fowler I thought I would give them a try. I installed them in the neck and middle and immediately I noticed a huge change. With the original pickups I was using a compressor pedal to smooth out the volume and with the Elite Pro's I get a much clearer sound and no longer need the compressor to balance the volume. I have a '93 Strat Plus with the original Lace Sensors and these blow it away for a warm, rich, blues tone. Add a little overdrive and they are the best blues PUs I have heard. I was skeptical at first because of the price compared to some of the more recognized pickup manufacturers but after hearing them in my Tele I couldn't be happier. In fact I just ordered a set for my Strat Plus!

Clarity with thickness

These pickups do exactly what they claim they do and you can’t beat the price point. I put these into my American Std Strat and kept everything I loved about the tone (same clarity) and corrected the things I wasn’t crazy about (weak, thin, ice-picky bridge pickup). It’s a weird feeling being able to switch to the bridge pickup and not worrying about hurting anyone’s ears. Great pickups, can’t recommend them enough.
