Description

The Z-Core 5 Vintage Set is the lowest output Strat set we make, targeted at that classic low wind 50’s/late 60’s response in the neck and middle. The slight hotter bridge, like an early/mid 60’s output, provides a more balanced response than you would find in a true vintage set of pickups. It is compatible with conventional 250 kΩ controls. We recommend control kit 6 with this set(or 10 if you want to add a blend pot). Use kit 9 (or 11) for a 275 kΩ load if you want to open up the high end just a wee bit more. Select the kit with an "A" on the end if you want a no load tone pot for the neck and middle pickups (or a master no load for kits 10 & 11).
