Lee Dickson was Eric Clapton's main guitar technician for over 30 years and worked with Eric to get the perfect sound and performance out of every guitar. No one knew the ins and outs of "Blackie" or "Brownie" better than Lee Dickson himself.
These strat pickups were designed by Lee Dickson with Mojotone to capture the original Blackie tone. They are his interpretation of an iconic sound and are based after the original 1974 strat pickups that were in Eric's Blackie guitar. Clarity and shimmer are the highlights of this set. Sonic definition and an emphasis on highs, with a broader resonant peak that keeps them form being harsh or shrill sounding. A strat pickup for the player who wants to cut through the mix with vivid tone.
