1969 Historic-Hot Woodstock Era Stratocaster® Set


While not pre-CBS, 1969 year heralded the "new" sound of the Strat, the sound of Jimi Hendrix.
Very similar to the 1964-65, but mine are wound just a bit hotter and meatier, and with single-build poly enamel magnet wire. I'm not a CBS fan, but I LOVE these pickups.
