HSS guitars can only be useful if the tone of humbuckers and single coils pair up nicely. Not only that, but the magnet polarities and winding directions must be configured or there will be phase problems. These are challenges that can take some planning or even trial and error to figure out.
The Supremacy HSS calibrated pickups are designed to work perfectly with each other and eliminate all the fuss of having to match the pickups. Calibrated to sound excellent together, suitable for both right or left-handed guitars, and the pickups are compatible with many popular HSS wiring kits/harnesses.
All 3 pickups are scatter wound and equipped with alnico 5 sand cast magnets. The single coils have beveled flat poles and provide a warm tone with good output so that they balance well with the humbucker, but tonally they still retain their classic Strat character with plenty of spank/attack when you dig in, and round bell tones when played softer.
The humbucker is built like an uncovered PAF with a pure nickel silver baseplate and vintage correct slugs and screws- it’s punchy with plenty of character, rich harmonics and overtones. The Supremacy HSS pickups are excellent choice for rock and blues, but could serve anyone who loves a Strat but needs something beefier and noiseless for their bridge pickup.

I'm Chris and I love guitars. I was lucky enough to get my first guitar 27 years ago when I was 13 and I've been hooked ever since. As a youngster I immediately began tinkering with them and foolishly got myself in trouble one time for completely disassembling my Uncle's Strat. Oops!
Over the years I've had the opportunity to work a number of different jobs ranging from guitar teacher, to electronics manufacturing, to chef, to pickups. One thing that never changed during those years is my love for guitars and the ongoing pursuit of amazing guitar tone.
Today building pickups is my full time profession with myself as the Fatpups sole operator. Since 2015 I've been fortunate enough to have made thousands of pickups for people worldwide. I would be happy to hear from you so please let me know if there is anything I can do!
