Want to get the most from your Strat™ style guitar kit? This pack includes the three most commonly upgraded parts to make your kit shine and sound like a pro. Wilkinson parts are famous for providing the ultimate balance between looks, performance and price.
If you’re looking for that classic “Strat quack” sound, these “vintage voiced” pickups are the way to go. They use staggered polepieces that provide a consistent volume level on all strings. The middle pickup is reverse wound so you get a hum-cancelling effect when selected with the neck or bridge pickup. As you get closer to the bridge, there is less movement in the string, so the bridge pickup is overwound to compensate, ensuring you have plenty of volume for that big solo.
Includes 3 genuine Wilkinson single coil pickups, springs and screws.
Design and performance shine in this awesome vibrato upgrade. The bridge uses 6-screw pivot system, but provides the smooth fulcrum action of a 2 pivot system. This is thanks to the unique Wilkinson “5+1” knife edge system. This is achieved with a single hole to locate the vibrato laterally with the remaining holes being elongated which eliminates the chance of screws binding in the holes. The result is a “return to original position” second to none. Add to this a push-in vibrato arm, vintage bent steel saddles and stagger drilled block for unrivalled tuning stability. We have chosen the solid steel sustain block version providing the ultimate in sustain.
Includes bridge, tremolo arm, 3 tremolo springs, spring claw, Allen key. Bridge and claw screws NOT SUPPLIED.
Guitarists can have a love/hate relationship with their vibrato. Slamming that whammy bar comes at the cost of tuning, but we’ve got a solution. The Wilkinson E-Z-Lok™ machine heads have two holes greatly improving tuning stability. You can still tune conventionally if you like, but when you use both holes, you essentially get a locking tuning key that keeps the strings in tune. Just thread the string through either the top or bottom hole, pull the string tight, make a wrap around the post, then thread the remaining string through the second hole.
Includes 6 in-line machine heads, sleeves, screws and washers.
