About the pickups
New for 2015! Perfect for Blues and Jazz, this new set offers players touch-sensitive and sweet clean tones, without boomy bass notes or harsh trebles. Adding some overdrive reveals the smooth musicality and sustain that Alnico II offers. Scatterwound with single gauge AWG 42 wire.
The mid pickup is reverse wound for hum-cancelling operation in positions 2 and 4, and the set features a calibrated wind for better volume balance across all 5 positions.
Neck - 6.3k
Middle - 6.2k
Bridge - 6.8k

Good sound but 5 way switch wired backwards , had to rewire it myself
Fast service, great product, excellent price. 100% recommended. Will use Northwest again.
After 30 years of outstanding service I thought it was time to upgrade the electronics on my beloved ‘86 Squire Strat.
This fully loaded scratch plate meant that I did it all in one go, with minimal soldering on my part. What a brilliant way to upgrade.
The pots and switch seem excellent quality and the tone of the pickups is fantastic. Guitar now has a new lease of life.
The only snag was one of the holes in scratchplate was in wrong place.
