Any experienced guitarist will tell you that stock pickups are usually lacking warmth, dynamics & sustain. Most mass produced or boutique pickups share this shortcoming, some of them might sound different but most of those cheaply made pickups come up short in important areas of warmth, dynamics and sustain. This is an issue that plagues many guitarists, its the main reason why so many players spend a fortune buying multiple amps and dozens of pedals. Does this sound like someone you know?
Listen to the Sustain Solution.
You'll need to take a few moments watch and listen to the videos on this page. Sure you could spend hours reading the great reviews online but why do that when you can let your ears be the judge?
MAXIMUM SUSTAIN - EXPRESS YOURSELF
The amount of sustain you'll hear in the video below far exceeds anything you'd expect to hear from an ordinary Stratocaster type guitar. Tone Specific employed many proprietary techniques on the the 1965 Deluxe Strat Pickups and the results of their labor has been a real game changer for pro guitarists around the globe. You have to hear it to believe it.
CLEAN SUSTAIN - NEXT LEVEL TONE
Watch what happens at the 43 second mark in the video. The guitarist turns the guitar volume down to clean up the tone. Most Strat Pickups get too thin or too weak and are unusable when you turn the volume down. The 1965 Deluxe Strat Pickups from Tone Specific sound better with the volume on 2 than most pickups sound wide open. Watch the video below to hear this phenomenon for yourself.
