1960 True Vintage Stratocaster LTD
Stratocaster pickups wound with vintage 1960 Formvar wire. Very Limited Edition.
The Sigil True Vintage Stratocaster pickup set is a limited edition set wound with a rare stash of 1960 Formvar wire. The bobbins are assembled with 1959 staggered magnets and the wire is hand wound just like the originals were done by Leo Fender back in the 1950’s and early 1960’s.

“All I can say is WOW! What a huge improvement in tone they make They sound so much more full and dynamic. I compared them to 3 other guitars I have with single coils in them that I like and I can say that except for one of my other ones that might have a little more output than your, yours were the best sounding of the bunch!
I think you have a winner with these pickups. What I like about them is that every position and pickup combination sound different but still very good. The quack is there and so is the punch. Besides maybe trying a combo magnet set in the bridge I wouldn’t change a thing.”
