Of course, hum and noise are completely eliminated. These pickups are incredibly sensitive, giving you a wide range of tones and output levels simply by adjusting the distance of the pickup from the strings. With S-Deluxe pickups, the “in-between” positions are wonderfully hollow, and the bridge pickup has the strength, snap, and twang typically experienced only in Telecasters.™ The unique staggered double blade design of the bridge pickup, common to all JBE single-coil sized bridge pickups, eliminates drop-outs on the outer strings.. All S-Deluxe pickups are designed to fit standard Strat body routs with no modifications to the instrument. The pickups utilize 4 conductor shielded cable to allow for any possible wiring combination and are supplied with wiring diagrams and mounting hardware to facilitate installation. The S-Deluxe Chunky™ bridge pickup is a more muscular version of the S-Deluxe bridge pickup that offers a fatter tone in the bridge without going all the way to the “Fat Strat” tones of a full humbucker, preserving the SSS vibe and in-between tones (albeit with a bit extra beef from the bridge pickup.)For a full fat-Strat experience, consider the S-Deluxe HSS Set equipped with an HB Two/Tone bridge pickup. The HB TT is a dual mode/coil tapped bridge pickup that can be switched (on the fly) between full-bodied humbucker or single coil tones, preserving the vibe of an SSS or need for a full humbucker tone in an HSS configuration. Both HB TT modes are free of noise and hum. Check out the video sound sample.
