Fast Track 1™


The Fast Track 1™ is hotter and more muscular than The Cruiser®, but it’s still very bright and clean sounding — not at all like a full-size humbucker. The dual-blade continuous magnetic field creates an even string balance with very little magnet-pull, eliminating the “out-of-tuneness” common to rod-magnet designs. The Fast Track 1™ pickup’s power (double the output of a standard single-coil) makes it highly recommended in combination with medium - to - hot full-size humbuckers. You can also put a whole set of Fast Track 1™ pickups in a Strat® style guitar, or create custom sets with any of our other dual-blade models.

Tech Talk

The Fast Track 1 has more headroom than a vintage single-coil, and performs well with both clean and overdriven amps. For any situation where single-coil sound with higher power and hum-cancellation is required. Can be used in any position in a standard Strat® setup. Although it isn't as loud as high-output pickups, it combines very well with all of our full-size humbuckers because it has the dynamic range to keep up, especially with overdrive.
