Single pickup or set
The classic sound of a 1962 Stratocaster shares many characteristics with the earlier 1954 model and delivers the same full-bodied sound. However, the 1962’s are wound slightly hotter with a bit more output and a slightly compressed and focused sound due to the hand beveled Alnico V magnets, carefully staggered to the correct measurements. Vintage correct 42 AWG wire make these the go to pickups for your need of this sound we all love.
The neck pickup on a 1962 Stratocaster is well-suited for playing blues and jazz, while the middle pickup is brighter and more focused, with a distinctive quack that is often used in funk and R&B music. The bridge pickup is perhaps the most distinctive of the three, with a biting, treble-heavy sound that is perfect for playing rock and roll or other high-energy styles.
Overall, the pickups on a 1962 Stratocaster are known for their clarity, articulation, and dynamic range, making them a popular choice for guitarists in a wide range of styles and genres.
Scatterwound to vintage specs and wax potted, but only to a degree to set the coil but still leave enough room for clarity and dynamics.
The middle pickup is RWRP to buck hum in positions 2 and 4. However we can, if you want, do it the Leo-way and leave all three pickups the same.
