The Lipstick Tube for Strat uses the same materials and construction as our Danelectro replacement, but is modified to be a drop-in for any standard sized Strat slot. What you get is a unique combination of Strat bounciness and Dano crispness. The tone is sharp and jangly, and is great for all types of clean tone rhythm playing. Leads have a snarly breakup when overdriven, and are full of bright grittiness. Hand built in Santa Barbara, CA, the Lipstick Tube uses an alnico 6 bar magnet, and a classic looking Danelectro style Lipstick Tube cover that has been slightly reduced in size to fit a Strat slot. We have also modified the mounting bracket so that it mounts like any iother Stratocaster pickup. Comes with 2-conductor shielded lead wire, and is vacuum wax potted for squeal free operation.
