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

The ‘Triple Blues’ set was inspired by a certain Austin Texas Legend. Smooth and adequately powerful with out being over the top is the order of the day. An average of 6.2 neck 6.5 middle and 7.2 bridge. Scatter wound with fibre flatwork, vintage staggered alnico 5 magnets, and cloth hook-up wire.  RWRP middle pickup as standard.

Woody and organic sounding with loads of string definition and cut when used clean ... When you turn the ‘wick’ up they hold together beautifully. and really sing.

Strat® vintage output

Strat pickups of the mid to late fifties are legendary for their chiming clarity and crisp note articulation.

The ‘Rocket Fiftyfive’ set follows in the footsteps of those early days, being 5.5k neck and middle (average) … but having a few extra turns on the bridge pickup to balance the whole set better (6.1k average). A wide scatter pattern and lower tension wind allows super detailed highs, and the stagger pattern follows the practise of the time and helps bring out the ‘mids’. Hand bevelled, staggered alnico 5 magnets sit in traditional fibre flatwork, and multi strand, cloth covered hookup wire finish the job off.

Sets are RWRP middle as standard, non RWRP middle available in singles.

ROCKET 55

TRIPLE BLUES

Baseplate fitted to bridge pickup +£9.50

The 33 Special is a slightly different flavour of Strat pickup to the normal alnico 5 types.

The alnico magnets give lower string pull for more sustain, coupled with a sweet, bell like tone and a slight ‘compression’ that sounds very vintage.


Staggered alnico 3 magnets, Scatter wound with cloth covered hookup wire.

 Sets are RWRP middle as standard, non RWRP middle available in singles.
