ST 60


Adreas Kloppmann began working on guitars in the mid โ€˜80โ€™s, during that time Andreas collected data from every pickup which passed his workbench. In the โ€˜90โ€™s Andreas improved the analysis methods to further understand pickups and with the assistance of artists such as Thomas Blug, Jรผrgen Attig and Peter Weihe he discovered which frequencies found in specific pickup tones corresponded with which famous guitar tones he loved such as Hendrix, Hank Marvin and Pastorius.

Based on this ever developing knowledge, Kloppmann can now analyse the sound of a pickup from its data and decide what its ideal purpose is as well as replicate our favourite tones from musical history.

The ST 60 set is a true bestseller product. Its the perfect all round set and a homage to the famous Rosewood Strats of the early sixties. The ST 60 covers all the bases allowing you to rock to the tones of Ricky King, Hank Marvin, Rory Gallagher, Mark Knopfler and even SRV. They stay well defined and offer excellent string separation even in high gain, compressed passages.
