Tele snap for your Strat without the noise and hum.
This S-Deluxe neck/middle model are the Strat-equivalent to the Joe Barden dual-blade Danny Gatton Tele pickup.
The tone of the S-Deluxe is absolutely Strat in character, but with greatly expanded fidelity and a balanced frequency response. Of course, hum and noise are completely eliminated. These pickups are incredibly sensitive, giving you a wide range of tones and output levels simply by adjusting the distance of the pickup from the strings.
With S-Deluxe pickups, the "in-between" positions are wonderfully hollow, and the bridge pickup has the strength, snap, and twang typically experienced only in Telecasters.
All S-Deluxe pickups are designed to fit standard Strat body routs with no modifications to the instrument. The pickups utilize 4 conductor shielded cable to allow for any possible wiring combination and are supplied with wiring diagrams download and mounting hardware to facilitate installation.
And finally available after many requests are White S-Deluxe pickups. Computer screen colors are often misleading so the color you see on your screen may not accurately reflect the true color of the pickup which can be best described as a something akin to "White Chocolate" with a white finish that is not stark or bright. The white color looks great against a white perloid, black and even pure white pickguard. The materials for these pickups cost more, but the price is the same as our standard black.
A few words from Joe:
"Tthe T-Style, S-Style, HB and HBTwo/Tone models that you have known over the years are here, unchanged, and available once again.

Comments about Joe Barden Pickups (Barden) S-Deluxe Neck/Middle Strat Pickup:
Guys & Gals, don't let the price tag scare you. Barden makes the best strat replacement pickup on earth. I first heard them while in Munich Germany. I was checking out guitars and the store manager put a Barden loaded strat in my hands and I could not believe it. The tone, sustain, clarity and character were exactly what I was looking for. When I got back to Detroit I load my strat with bardens and it's been my best guitar ever since. The quality is unsurpassed. Whenever I'm playing sessions my friends demand that I record with the barden loaded strat. It's really out of this world. the balance between pickups is also perfect. No dropouts or unwanted noise. Yet, it still sounds like a strat. You have to give these a shot. You will be very happy that you did. Lock and LOAD with Bardens.
