The City Limits set is designed to offer guitarists a hotter Stratocaster sound with unrivalled versatility. The neck and mid pickups are wound to emulate the sought-after “overwound” late 50’s-style pickups that vintage collectors have found to have a rich piano-like bass and thick trebles – a tone that has become known as the “Texas” sound. The bridge pickup, however, is a departure from the standard winds and is overwound with lighter gauge AWG43 gauge wire to approximately 9.0kOhms for a more modern soloing sound when used with gain or distortion, without a harsh top end.
Due to advances in string technology and the wider range of modern guitar necks, the City Limits set uses our unique “Modified Vintage Stagger” polepiece magnet array allowing for near perfect string-to-string balance on the greatest range of instruments possible. Get them in any Strat and find that hotter, fatter Texas tone you’ve been waiting for.
