Here's our best, most authentic take on the classic late 50's Strat sound- The 63 Professional Series.
Made with all the good stuff- authentic black fiber bobbins, sand-cast Alnico V rod magnets, hand magnetized and set in the correct vintage stagger, beveled for the classic look and feel, plain enamel coil wire and even waxed cloth push-back wires.
We've wound these to match a ridiculously special 63 Strat we've had the pleasure to own...but we've substituted a HOT bridge pickup to give you maximum rock power in the lead position, and authentic Strat tone in the mid and neck- bridge is 8.6K, mid is 6.5K and neck is 6.1K. This yields the big, strong PIANO like 60's Strat sound with plenty of sparkle and clarity. Chose either a normal wound mid pickup or an RW/RP mid for hum canceling in positions 2 and 4. If you're a true vintage tone freak you'll go for standard wound to maintain maximum "quack"...but for the gigging musician that hum canceling is awfully handy and you don't lose too much.
These come stock with white covers- and you may add vintage white, cream or black covers for a small fee..
The complete set of 3 comes packed in a GFS Professional box with nickel plated Stainless Steel screws, Silicone Rubber springs and a wiring diagram.
Here's What Our Customers Are Saying about the 63' Texas Set
I just want to sincerely thank you for a fantastic product. I was looking for a gritty tone for my Dean Strat and took the plunge in ordering a set of 63 Texas Pro's. Well i can only say the pickups are inspirational!!!!! I put them in and within 20 minutes I wrote our bands debut single. I'm not looking for exposure or advertisement. I honestly just want to thank you for defining the band's tone! I'm a converted GFS man now!
