Strat® hybrid magnet designs

Oil City pickups have no connection with Fender Musical Instruments Gibson or Gretsch.

Alnico 5 magnets give the best bass end response of any magnet grade when used in Strat® pickups … yet sometimes they can be a little ‘spiky’ in the top end.

It’s not a new idea but here we have the Oil City version of the hybrid magnet Strat®  pickup: the bottom strings on each pickup are served by alnico 5 magnets … and the top three are powered by smooth and softer alnico 3 magnets.

This really does give ‘the best of both worlds’, and gives yet more choice to the Strat® player.

Vintage DC resistance for middle and neck of 5.9k, slightly hotter 6.2k bridge pickup for balance.
