High-output single-coil sound with none of the noise.

No humbucking pickup sounds exactly like a vintage single-coil, but the Cruiser is about as close as it gets. The special dual-resonance design allows one coil to act as a woofer and the other as a tweeter. This extends the range of the noise-canceling design and allows the best qualities of each coil to be enhanced while fine tuning the output. There is less magnetic pull, and it still sounds clean, clear, and bright. Output: 140mV.

Recommended for neck position with DP187, or neck & middle with hotter bridge like Fast Track 1, Chopper, Pro Track, or full-size humbuckers (See recommended accessories box on this page).

  • well rounde masterpiece

    As reviewed by craig appelquist on 9/15/2010

    i have used this pickup in both the neck and bridge positions of my mim strat and have never had another pickup that work as well for so many different styles of music. in the neck it gives off beautiful clean and overdriven tones and in the bridge it gives just enough bite for both heavy blues and even metal. suprisingly i prefer this pickup to my duncan jb for metal tones it exibits incredible balance while accentuating high mids and lows incredibly well. i highly recommend it for players who have expanded musical tastes.

  • Quietest pickups I've EVER heard

    As reviewed by Joe on 10/14/2009

    These pickups are just mind-boggling. Their sound really is remarkably true to a single coil, but I can sit down next to my Carvin V3 with the Drive knob dimed and not hear a thing unless I play. My Tone Zone in the same guitar, however, does have hum (just not 60-cycle). I have one of these in the neck and another in the middle position. My guitar (mostly Carvin parts) is wired for 3 positions: B, M+N, N. The neck and middle position gives a great tone, both smooth, chimey, and warm. The neck position is very wooden, just like a real single coil. The rails give NO discrepancy between strings; everything comes across evenly. These pickups aren't your 'jack-of-all-trades,' (unless you like Yngwie's tone) but they sound fantastic in a very wide range of applications.

  • Sweet pick-up

    As reviewed by Francis Voignier on 7/26/2010

    The Cruiser is one of the greatest replacement for single coils p/us in the neck position of the "Strat". It exhibits the characteristics of the alnico magnets used in vintage pick-ups, without the noise and the string pull. Though its output is somewhat lower than the other p/us one may use in their guitars, such as the Air Norton or the Chopper, it is by no means a fault. The Cruiser sounds fabulous through an over-driven front end, with solid lows and crisp highs all the way up the neck. One of my faves!
