Klein 1965 EPIC SERIES Stratocaster Pickup Set Authentic in Every Way, A Classic Year Made Popular by SRV's Lenny Strat.  We Have Recreated The Tone!
Magnets, Our Epic Series 1965 Pickups use Original Fender Alloy Alnico 5 Magnets From 1965.  We sent Original magnets from a 1965 pickup to an Independent Laboratory for Metallurgical Chemical Analysis Testing.  We then contracted direct with our magnet manufacturer to get the Alnico 5 magnets Specially Poured to the exact composition of the Originals.  We are the only manufacturer who offers this.  Pure, Sweet, and Authentic Tone. 

Wire, our 42ga Plain Enamel wire is not just stock wire.  We have sent dozens of samples of wire from CBS ERA stratocasters for analysis.  We get our 42ga Plain Enamel built to the exact specs of the samples we have had analyzed.  Exact Resistance, Exact ID & OD, & Color matching.  Our 42ga Plain Enamel Wire is the most authentic and accurate Magnet Wire Available for CBS Era Stratocasters. 
Tone, the tone of our Authentic 1965 pickups is just amazing.  The main reason why is that materials used in the 50s & 60's are not the same as today's off the shelf parts.   Replicating every alloy, every element, every aspect of a pickup is why our Epic Series Pickups sound identical to a real pickup of that year.  We get every part of the Epic 1965 pickups specially manufactured, only for us, from an actual 1965 pickup. 
Compression, the current Alnico 5 alloy is very strong, very bright, & has quite a brittle edginess.  One of the first things that is noticeable is that original magnets aren't as strong.   This is not due to demagnetizing, but it's due to the chemical composition.  The composition in 1965 yields for a sweeter and brighter tone.   Tremble frequencies are very articulate and the bass is tight.  The mid range of the pickup is strong and solid, not overbearing but akes a very well known presence.   The quack in the #2 and #4 positions is also very characteristic in the cluckiness seen from strats of this year.   
Lots of famous stratocaster players play 1965 strats.  One of the most famous is "Lenny" from SRV.   His strat has a unique and very distinctive sound that is very noticeable.   Now you can have and afford the opportunity to play pickups with the exact same tonal possibilities as he did. 
All pickups are "Flash Potted" to avoid microphonic squeal but still retains the natural characteristics just like original pickups.
