.strandberg* Metal Neck Humbucker BN

.strandberg* Metal Neck Humbucker BN


Designed and voiced for pulverizing power with crystal clear articulation, the Metal humbuckers not only provide that extra kick to the input stage but with touch-sensitive responsiveness and organic tone. What does “organic tone” mean in modern high gain setting? It means that the pickups still retain that vintage-like feel, warmth and sweetness that most high output pickups lack. It means that you still have the dynamics and the overtones when playing in clean or lower-gain settings on your amp. It also means that you can play a whole lot of other styles and musical genres than Metal.

This product is designed for direct mount only. .strandberg* MF Humbuckers are supplied with 3mm mounting holes without threads.

Get the most out of your .strandberg* Guitar

A new defining sound


Inspired by passion for the best guitar tones possible and informed by many decades of combined experience between .strandberg* staff and legendary pickup designer Michael Frank, the .strandberg* pickups offer the best of all worlds: audiophile-like clarity and definition with warm organic character that faithfully reproduces the natural acoustic sonic characteristics of the woods of the guitar resonating in harmony. Every little detail has been carefully thought out to produce the purest and unaltered sound as possible from the guitar.


You have your own vision of what your style and sound should be like. They define your unique musical voice and artistry that you strive to get across to your audience. At the same time, you seek flexibility and versatility because you seek to convey a wide range of timbres, dynamics and phrasing that you’ve worked for many years to develop and hone. The wide range of .strandberg* pickups means you can choose the one set or a mix of different pickup models that works best for your particular style and sound.


You get your best sound when you have razor-sharp focus on your music and your playing, not fiddling with gear or wondering if it’s delivering what you envision. We’ve done the work to provide the pickups that bring out the very best in a .strandberg* guitar so you can focus on your playing. Together with Michael Frank, we spent three years testing various prototypes and having our world class artists take them out on the road or to recording sessions to get their “real world” feedback. After countless tweaks, fine-tuning and revisions of each pickup model, the .strandberg* pickups are now ready to take your .strandberg* guitar and your playing to the highest level.

Today’s high-gain amplifiers, modelers and plug-ins all provide more gain than most players will ever need. With this in mind, we designed the Metal pickups so that they can work in conjunction and complement the modern amplification devices so that you can dial in the exact amount of drive, sustain, punch, articulation and texture to match the sound you envision. With tight yet responsive lows, a full rich midrange that never gets lost in themix and cutting yet expressive highs, the Metal set will convey your every pick attack and touch with authority and that elusive feel.
