.strandberg* Original Neck Humbucker BN

.strandberg* Original Neck Humbucker BN


Based on the popular and versatile setup of a hot-rodded bridge humbucker and a vintage-style neck humbucker, our Original humbuckers can cover a vast range of musical genres and sounds from classic rock and pop to fusion jazz and over-the-top modern metal. The Original bridge humbucker has a medium-hot output with a high-mids emphasis to provide the necessary kick to the early gain stage of your amplifier or overdrive pedal but not so as much as to drive into immediate saturation, which means it still retains all the dynamics of your picking techniques and touch.

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.

Combined with the neck humbucker with a vintage-style output and voicing, the Original humbucker set is the perfect set for players who require the utmost versatility and flexibility in a two-humbucker setup. The split-coil single-coil sounds in the second and fourth positions have bell-like clarity andchime to suit clean arpeggiated chords to funk-style rhythm and even bluesyleads, providing you with five exceptional sounds that you can use to cover virtually any playing style and musical genre – from traditional to the modern.
