The Duckbucker is a single coil sized humbucker designed to be wired in parallel to give you a vintage, sparkly single coil tone without any hum. Its unique, split-pole pattern with 3 poles on each coil, helps to give you that familiar single coil bounciness and snappy low end. In the bridge position, the Duckbucker is bright and spanky. Chords will sound bright and crisp, and really shimmer with chimey high end. The 4-conductor lead wire gives you access to series wiring (using a pushpull or mini-toggle) for a hotter, humbucker tone. This pickup is a drop-in for any Fender American Standard sized Stratocaster pickup route.Pair with our Duckbuckers Strat neck.Hand built in Santa Barbara, CA, the Duckbucker for Strat uses a ceramic bar magnet, comes with a 4-conductor lead wire, and is wax potted for squeal free operation.
