BlueBird J1 – Electric Guitar Pickups (Set of 3)

There has been a trend in recent years to overwind pickups. Overwinding produces a louder pickup with a more pronounced mid hump in the tone, you also loose some low end. Many vintage pickups were often wound with many less turns, this produces a bright and more open sounding pickup. Too few winds and the pickup can sound thin and clinical, too many windings and the pickup will be harsh on the top end and muddy on lows. Getting the balance right is part of what makes a pickup sound amazing. We believe that we have found the perfect balance of scatter windings, magnet strength and coil shape to create the best pickup tone from a Strat.

The BlueBird J1 Electric Guitar Pickups produce a Pure, Vintage, Fat and Playable Strat tone. The Bluebird J1’s have been meticulously designed and refined over a 15 year period by renowned guitarist Jesse Davey to get as close to the Stevie Ray Vaughan tone as possible. The pickups let the pure ‘Bell like’ quality of your guitar shine through. If you feel its time to fix the weak link in your tone, these pickups could be right for you. Monster Tone.

    After changing the stock pickups in my Fender Stratocaster from 2004 with the Bluebird J1 I really feel a great improvement in the my guitat tone. Fat punchy sound perfect for blues. I’m not really good in describing the sound of these pickups just by words. I think the satetement in the description is just perfect: Monster tone.
    Thanks Jesse
