PLEK……….THE ULTIMATE SETUP!
WOLFE GUITARS have an incredible high tech PLEK machine, and we are offering a SPECIAL PRICE for customers buying a new or pre-owned Guitar or Bass from our shop. Our PLEK robotic fret dressing process is way more accurate and gentler on the frets & fingerboard fret slots than a typical manual filing fret dress. Since the instrument is already here, and going to be setup by us anyway, we’ll do the PLEK service for a deeply discounted price of just $139.00. Included is hand polishing the frets and a full setup. This amazing service is normally $219.00 Our PLEK customers tell us they’re VERY pleased with the results and you will be also.
from the Klein website:
Our Epic Series 1962 Pickups use Original Alloy Alnico 5 magnets. We've done it again, sent Original magnets to an Independent Laboratory for Metallurgical Chemical Analysis Testing. We then contracted direct with our magnet manufacturer to get the Alnico 5 magnets Specially Poured to the exact composition of the Original 1962's. We are the only manufacturer who offers this. Pure, Sweet, and Authentic Tone.
Our 42ga Heavy Formvar wire is not just stock wire. We have sent dozens of samples of wire from early Stratocasters for analysis. We get our 42ga Heavy Formvar built to the exact specs of the samples we have had analyzed. Exact Resistance, Exact ID & OD, & Color matching.
-Tone, the low end on these pickups are unprecedented, full of low end chunkiness, paired with a very nice medium output, brings out a perfect balance to the mid range drive in these pickups. They have just the right amount of bark in the mids, clean when strummed politely while driving when played more aggressively . The top end clarity present and very well balanced. Overall, these are a medium output set that can drive and bark when needed.
-Compression, these pickups are medium in output so they will have a solid mid range presence. They will drive when needed or run warm and full when left clean.
Once the pickup is wound we lightly wax pot (FLASH POT) them to avoid unwanted microphonic feedback but still retains that natural vintage tone.
These are the most authentic 1962 stratocaster vintage replacement pickups on the market.
