PAT Pend '59 Slab Board Single Neck (Bare Knuckle)

PAT Pend '59 Slab Board Single Neck (Bare Knuckle)


This is the Neck Pick Up only selection.

After the success of the Blackguard Tele Series it seemed logical to extend the concept and produce a collection of vintage correct Strat sets based on customer demand for coils from specific eras. The PAT Pend Series centres in on the two most requested periods between '59-'62 and '63-'65.

The introduction of a rosewood 'slab' fingerboard in 1959 was a milestone in Strat tone, arguably producing a warmer tone than the earlier one-piece maple necks. The '59 Slab Board coils are made with vintage correct black fibreboard flatwork, hand-bevelled Alnico V magnets and scatter-wound by hand with 42AWG Heavy Formvar wire. The tone is hollow and woody with tight, punchy, bottom-end snap and crisp, clear highs. Both chording and single note playing is wonderfully percussive and the moderate vintage output is perfect for extra cut with a slab board neck.
