Apache single coils are based on the rounder, fatter tones of the original '54 to '57 coils. Deep bottom end with a bell-like chime in the highs and rich, wide mid-range produce a crystal-clear clean tone without ever sounding harsh or thin. Overdriven tones sound full and crunchy with plenty of body for single note work. Scatter-wound by hand with vintage correct Heavy Formvar wire, the bridge coil is wound a little hotter to give better balance across the set. The calibrated Alnico III magnets are hand-beveled and set in fiber board flat work in either the original '54 stagger with low G magnet or the more common '56 stagger. The low magnetic pull of the Apache allows for excellent dynamics and perfect intonation.

- Magnet: Vintage Stagger - Polarity: RW/RP - Colour: Parchment White - Aged Coils/Cover(s): No - Zinc Plated Steel base: None

Fantastically Vintage Sounding


These are some of the best sounding single coil pickups I have ever played. I am a huge fan of the strat pickups from Bare Knuckle, and these are perfect for getting that super woody and round sound like the good ol' 50's strats. If you want that straight up 50's sound, no extra bells and whistles, pick up a set of Apaches. Sam Ash Employee Review
