Nordstrand NVS Vintage Stratocaster offer a slightly hotter bridge and a r.w.r.p. middle pickup for hum-canceling in the combo switch positions, these pickups achieve a dynamic balance of higher output, beefier midrange, and slightly more aggressive treble. These Stratocaster pickups have the ability to slice through any mix and skyrocket straight to the top of those piercing yet succulent lead frequencies; driving your amp and pedalboard with more intense output and revealing to you new dimensions of vintage Strat tone. But do not fear these aggressive adjectives! Though our wind technology and fabrication process provides these pickups with a unique high end and bold, complex character, they are still chock-full of classic Stratocaster bounce, punch, and quack. Great for rock, blues, and country styles!

The NVS was the very first six string model available from Nordstrand Pickups. The coil shape and wind count was designed in Redlands, CA, by a team of discriminating craftsmen and players. From the time of our very first vintage Stratocaster replacement prototype, the Hot, standard, and Cool winds have been carefully and precisely refined with wind count and coil geometry in mind. To this day, the Nordstrand team continues to keep a watchful eye out for any place that the NVS design can be improved.
