Mother's Milk Singlecoil pickups:
Bridge - 6.5k Alnico v, Middle - 5.7k Alnico v, neck - 5.7k Alnico v
The Mother's Milk single coils are a combination of the larger diameter Alnico V magnetic rod of the late '50s and the introduction of 42AWG plain enamel wound coils with the CBS takeover at Fender. The hand-bevelled magnets and scatter-wound coils produce a tighter, deeper bottom end with clear, full highs that really sing when overdriven and never sound thin or brittle. Mid-range is hollow and woody, with a little more grit and edge compared to Heavy Formvar wound coils, for a crisp clean tone and more distinctive blues rock voice.
