- Magnets, Klein's Epic Series 1956 Pickups use Original Fender Alloy Alnico 5 Magnets From 1956. Klein sent Original magnets from a 1956 pickup to an Independent Laboratory for Metallurgical Chemical Analysis Testing. They then contracted direct with our magnet manufacturer to get the Alnico 5 magnets Specially Poured to the exact composition of the Originals. Klein are the only manufacturer who offers this. Pure, Sweet, and Authentic Tone.
- Wire, Klein get thier 42ga Heavy Formvar built to the exact specs of the samples we have had analyzed. Exact Resistance, Exact ID & OD, & Color matching. Their 42ga Heavy Formvar Wire is the most authentic and accurate Magnet Wire Available.
- Compression, the current Alnico 5 alloy is very strong, very bright, & has quite a brittle edginess. One of the first things that is noticeable is that original magnets aren't as strong. This is not due to demagnetizing (like every other manufacturers does), but it's due to the chemical composition. 1956 ash body guitars are know for their sweet clean tones but with their uncanny ability to drive the signal with out a heavy mid range. The pickups are just that, clean & driven, a perfect combination for any strat players who's wanting a REAL STRAT Sound.
All pickups are "Flash Potted" to avoid microphonic squeal but still retains the natural characteristics just like original pickups.
Output: Neck 5.8k, Middle 5.9k, Bridge 5.7k
