ST Real 62

Andrea’s Own Strat 

Adreas Kloppmann began working on guitars in the mid ‘80’s, during that time Andreas collected data from every pickup which passed his workbench. In the ‘90’s Andreas improved the analysis methods to further understand pickups and with the assistance of artists such as Thomas Blug, Jürgen 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.

Andrea’s ´62 Stratocaster was his absolute favourite for many years so its no surprise that his first Strat set was named Real 62. These pickups are clean but fat and warm, they have much milder highs than the ST 60s but still retain the pre-CBS shine. George Harrison bought an early ´60s Strat towards the end of 1964. This guitar war played on both the Help and Rubber Soul albums. From 1969 Harrison used his “Rocky” Strat for his crystal-clear, sweetly slide licks as on My Sweet Lord. If you savour these sounds of the early ´60s, you can´t ignore the Real 62 Set.
