JBE Pickups Releases the S-Deluxe Chunky Bridge Pickup

JBE Pickups announces a new Strat pickup aimed at more muscular sounds.

Manassas, VA (July 30, 2013) -- Today, JBE Pickups/Joe Barden Engineering today announces the S-Deluxe Chunky bridge pickup for Stratocaster players.“The S-Deluxe Chunky has just a bit more muscle in the bridge position that Strat players have been asking us for ever since the introduction of the Modern T-Style bridge pickup for the Tele”, said Frank T., President of JBE Pickups. 

The S-Deluxe Chunky is a perfect solution for those Strat players who do not wish to go all the way to the dark bridge tones of a Fat Strat.  For these players and for those wanting just a bit thicker tone in the Strat’s bridge position, the S-Deluxe Chunky is the perfect answer.  Best of all, the ‘chimey’ single coil and  “in-between” sounds of the Strat’s middle/bridge pickup combination is not lost as in a Fat Strat and full sized bridge humbucker.

Like other S-Deluxe pickups hum and noise are eliminated.  What’s left is pure Strat tone but with a little…more. The S-Deluxe Chunky bridge pickup is also available as part of a 3-pickup S-Deluxe Chunky Set.  

Chunky Bridge $159.95
Chunky SET $439.85

JBE continues to offer the S-Deluxe HSS and HSH Sets with HB two/tone for those Strat players who want optimum flexibility with on-the-fly switched single-coil and full-bodied humbucker tones and whose guitar body is already routed for a full sized humbuckers

 “You need to hear and play the S-Deluxe Chunky for yourself”, said Frank T. … “the extra weight may just sound good on you”.

Albert Einstein, Charles Dickens, Georgia O’Keeffe, the Marx Brothers, Clint Eastwood, Jeff Bridges, Juliette Lewis, Jack Black, and Zooey Deschanel are or were musicians, albeit not full-time.
