Custom pre-wired 11 hole Strat pickguard in Dark Black Pearloid, fitted with a calibrated set of Irish Tour Singlecoil pickups in a white finish with flat profile magnets and a zinc plated steel baseplate on the bridge pickup.
As with all of our pre-wired guards, this one and is handwired at our UK workshop, loaded with our custom spec BKP / CTS volume and tone pots and Duelund paper in oil tone capacitor. We've done a small tweak on the pot tapers on this one, with 30% tapers on the tones and a 10% on the volume
Irish Tour Singlecoil pickups:
Bridge - 7.4k Alnico v, Middle - 6.3k Alnico v, neck - 6.3k Alnico v
The Irish Tour single coils take the 42 AWG plain enamel wind to the max with a clarity and depth that can only be achieved through hand-winding. Although big strings and strong hands result in a huge tone, the powerful output of the Irish Tour coils allows mere mortals an equally big and gutsy sound.
Low notes have a fuller, richer tone with more weight in the mids, while the high strings respond with a rounder chime and warmer harmonics. The hotter wound bridge can push a tube amp into natural overdrive while the calibrated mid and neck coils retain the hollow, woodiness of the Bare Knuckle Pickups Mother's Milk coils but with extra output.
