Angeltone Unveils Stannard and VS Series Pickups

A A

Oshkosh, WI (February 13, 2014) -- Angeltone has released a new version of one of the company’s most popular boutique pickup models.

The VS is an all new Angeltone pickup for Stratocasters and clones, offering guitar players all the sound, power and tonal detail of our other fine handmade, handwound pickup models... at a much lower price.

This model offers real nitrocellulose lacquer dipped vulcanized fiber bobbins made in house, 42 gauge Formvar coil wire, Alnico V magnets, wax potting, and real 22 gauge ‘vintage style’ cloth covered hookup wire for great vintage looks as well as sound. Each new Angeltone 'VS' pickup comes with a white pickup cover.

These pickups are available individually in rhythm, middle, and lead versions as well as in sets – when ordering sets, please specify ‘original style’ (all pickups same magnetic polarity and windings) or RW/RP (humcancelling) middle pickup.

Every Angeltone pickup offers the following appointments:

  • Individually handcrafted to customer specification, signed and dated by the winder
  • Left handed versions of our pickups are available at no extra cost
  • Made with many of the materials and methods used to make the original pickups
  • Lifetime Warranty to the original purchaser – see website for details

Price $49.95 USD each ($124.95 a set of 3)

Austin, Texas area Telecaster player John Stannard, in association with Angeltone Musical Instruments, has developed the 'Stannard Set' of pickups for Telecaster style guitars.

The 'Stannard Set' solves a perennial problem for Telecaster players – how to have both pickups on at the same time while staying tonally balanced, and still having a true vintage sound for lovers of early rockabilly, roots or country music.

This model offers vulcanized fiber bobbins made in house, nitrocellulose lacquer coil insulation dipping, Alnico magnets, black wax potting and 22 gauge ‘vintage style’ cloth covered hookup wire for great vintage looks as well as sound.

These pickups are available as a matched set of rhythm and lead pickups – please specify ‘original style’ (both pickups same magnetic polarity and windings) or with RW/RP (humcancelling) rhythm pickup.

Every Angeltone pickup offers the following appointments:

  • Individually handcrafted to customer specification, signed and dated by the winder
  • Left handed versions of our pickups are available at no extra cost
  • Made with many of the materials and methods used to make the original pickups
  • Lifetime Warranty to the original purchaser – see website for details
