Van Zandt Pickups was started by W.L. Van Zandt in the late 1980's, but he had been repairing pickups around the Dallas/Ft.Worth area since the early 1960's. Mr. Van Zandt worked for years as a machinist and played guitar in country bands since the 1950's. He started rewinding the magnets on pickups for friends and other players, and pretty soon he had a small business going as his reputation grew by word of mouth.
You'll stomp your feet from border to border with sounds from the True Vintage Model. These were designed to capture the sound of vintage Strats so expect to hear clear, chimey tones with great articulation and string-to-string definition. Especially good for country, Americana and roots rock, classic blues and rock-a-billy.

- Built to capture the sound of 50's to early 60's Strat
- A little bright with mid-tones
- W.L.'s favorite Strat pickup
- Good for Country, Blues, Jazz, Rock-a-billy.

BRIDGE : Vintage Plus Pickup for Strat:
Meant to capture the more aggressive sounds of 60's Strat Pickups, the Van Zandt Vintage Plus set is pure all around, balanced tone. The Vintage Plus set has slightly more output and midrange than the Vintage set. Blues, country or rock, it doesnÃ¯Â¾â€™t matter what you play, if you want the quintessential Strat sound, this is the set to get.
Once you hear a Van Zandt pickup, you'll understand why the reviews have been nothing short of phenomenal. All pickups are hand wound, wired and crafted to exacting standards in Dallas, Texas, one pickup at a time.
If theyÃ¯Â¾â€™re not perfect, then theyÃ¯Â¾â€™re not Van Zandts.
