42.5S3 Strat Pick Ups

Kent Armstrong is the second generation of guitar wizards the Armstrong family has produced, indeed Kent’s own son Aaron now famously creates pickups too and Kent’s father Dan ran a great guitar repair shop in New York City. With such a lineage it’s unsurprising to learn that their pickups are some of the best in the world and have been used by greats such as Jimmy Page, Rory Gallagher, Matt Bellamy and even members of the TonePedia team have them in some of their own favourite guitars. Kent himself worked alongside the world famous pickup designer Bill Lawrence before moving to the UK.

This spectacular set of strat pick ups is an example of what Aaron himself can hand build for you by order.
