Kent Armstrong Classic Vintage

Classic – Vintage – New … 

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 its unsurprising to learn that their pickups are some of the best in the world and have been used by great 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 work alongside the world famous pickup designer Bill Lawrence before moving to the UK. 

A vintage-style pickup . Offers a vintage tone that ISN’T modified to sound like a 60 year old pickup (unlike the Icon Series). Middle pickup is reverse wound.
