Rene Martinez was originally Stevie Ray Vaughan's guitar tech. He also worked with Eddie Brickell, Mick Jones of Foreigner, Clint Black, Prince, The Moody Blues, Jimmie Vaughan, Carlos Santana, and currently John Mayer. Mojotone is excited to work with such a renowned luthier to develop the new Rene Martinez "Texas" Strat® Pickups.
The magnets are customized Alnico III in the neck and middle and Alnico V in the bridge to give a full and balanced tone. You get that clean, ultra clear neck and middle tone that lets your amp shape your tone, while the bridge pickup is hotter with more girth and punch, and a sonic clarity that cuts through with attitude. The coils are calibrated from neck to bridge for an even volume throughout the switching.
Be the first in your town to own a set designed by such a renowned luthier. These come stock with staggered magnets with a raised D specifically for unwound 3rd string sets. RWRP middle position to be hum-cancelling in positions 2 and 4. Vacuum potted coils.
