The SVL Daytona Set
The SVL Daytona pickup set was developed exclusively by Simon Law, Guitar Tech and Guitar Builder in the UK for recording artist Matt Schofield.
Very similar to my ’62 set, the SVL Daytona pickup set utilizes Alnico 3 grade magnets, a magnet stagger that is reminiscent of the 60’s Strat® pickups, and Formvar magnetic wire wound to approximately 6K ohms for both the Neck and RWRP Middle pickups. The Bridge pickup is wound slightly hotter to about 6.4K and incorporates a steel grounded base plate affixed to the bottom of the pickup.
Gaining similar effects of a Telecaster® Bridge baseplate, it channels the midrange more while also reducing the shrilly highs. What you’ll experience is a very useable, warmer, vintage sounding bridge pickup that’ll sizzle when dimed.
All Amalfitano Pickup Strat® replacement sets are assembled using vintage color-coded cloth covered wire leads and are lightly wax potted to reduce the chance of microphonics.
