Caliber 5/3

This is an unusual Strat® set in that it mixes both alnico V magnets for the bass strings and alnico III for the top strings, giving punch on those low, open ‘piano’ notes, and smoothness and low string pull on the upper strings for maximum sustain. This really gives the best of two options, an alnico III with its smooth flute like highs, and an alnico V set with its crisp bass response, with no down side!

RWRP as standard and modern balanced in output.


Reverse stagger option available for left handed guitars.
