Porter Modern Strat®

Versatile tones with just the right amount of bite

Modern Strat® Pickup

Porter Modern’s are wound slightly hotter than our other sets, giving you just a bit more when soloing and playing rock. They are wound with 42 AWG poly coated wire, resulting in tones that are brighter and more edgy. The Modern’s are good for a variety of styles, and are especially recommended for tonally balancing a guitar with a rosewood fretboard, or one that has a darker body wood (like Mahogany). These pickups are bright with a maple fretboard, but provide a nice snappy tone.

We chose the term “Modern” because of their ability to cover a wide range of styles and tones, not just modern music.
