Purple Orchid - Stratocaster® Pickups

(Excl. tax)
* Cover Color:

* Position:


The graceful and symbolic flower that is synonymous with luxury and royalty.

In the same way the Purple Orchid evokes a sense of regal stature and refined clarity.

Purple Orchid is a medium output pickup. Wound to vintage ’62-‘65 specs
for a classic royal Strat® tone 
with lots of ”quack”.  The Alnico 5 magnets 
in relation to the winding technique make a very balanced pickup
especially in positions 2 and 4.

• Tight bass, smooth mids and brilliant highs.

Flat Pole Magnets.
Middle pickup is RWRP for hum-cancelling operation in positions  2 and 4.
Vintage cloth push-back lead wire.
Wax potted.

DC Resistance: Neck: *6.3kΩ,  Middle: *6.5kΩ,  Bridge: *6.8kΩ
