Burgaw, NC (January 9, 2018) -- Mojotone's new Pre-wired HSS Quiet Coil Pickguard assembly was designed for Strat-style players who require tonal versatility out of their guitar without any hum.

Incorporating their '58 Quiet Coil set with a custom vintage output '58 Clone Humbucker, Mojotone gives players access to noise free vintage Strat-style tone with single-coil clarity in the neck and middle positions and creamy P.A.F. tones in the bridge that cut through the mix with authority and unparalleled articulation.
