Description

The Z-Core 5 Modern Set is a step up in output from the Vintage Hot. The neck and middle pickups are targeted at an output just slightly hotter than true “vintage” output, but because of our unique design they still retain the vintage response. The bridge is a modern high output “boutique” flavor of Strat, with a powerful but still very Stratty attack like our Legacy Series SV5. This set can work with either 250, 275 or 500 k controls. Use 275 (kits 9 & 11) if you want to open up the high end just a bit (we think that's the best option for this intermediate output set). Use 500 (kits 1 & 2) if you want to open up the high end a lot. Select the kit with an "A" for a no load tone pot wired to neck and middle (or a no load master tone for the kits with a blend).
