The Angel Hair Strat pickups are a unique addition to Strat pickups. They are built with one special, reproduction, Alnico V magnet, not poles like a traditional Strat pickup. The magnet has a much lower guass than expected which means less string pull and is similar in tonal quality to the ferrite magnets used in gold foil pickups. Thus the gold foil covers. These are handwound with a high scatter using 44awg wire. The tone is bright, sweet and delicate and the quack is pronounced. These are also ideal pickups for fuzz and overdrive.
The Mojo's are a unique and versatile combination of vintage Strat and P-90 pickups. They are, very literally (and usually surprisingly), truly P90’ish in character. I say they're 50/50 but the tone is in the ear of the beholder. The tone is also in the amp and the style of the player. The Mojo's are made to cover a wider variety of tone-scapes. They can be sweet and chimey, they can quack in the 2 & 4, or they can be raunchy and grinding like a P-90. Set them low for a little of both or raise them up to warm them up and make them really growl. The screws are fully adjustable for the best of all worlds in string balance. A single Mojo is an excellent choice for a bridge pickup to cure the problem of an icy bridge tone. Likewise a single Mojo can be used in the middle position to give you several additional tonal options on a five-way switch or use one in the neck if you need something rowdy for lead or rhythm.
Like P-90's these pickups have a mid accentuation.
