Porter Vintage Custom Strat®

Vintage tones with power

Vintage Custom Strat® Pickup

The Porter Vintage Customs get their name because of the blend of vintage style coil wire with modern coil design. We added some new touches and features with this set to provide a more focused tone. The VC’s feature even height and bevelled AlNiCo 5 magnets resulting in a good string to string balance and a focused tone, with a little more output and aggression,but a smothered less aggressive response. The Vintage Custom set comes complete with vintage style grey bottom bobbins, and the bridge position features a steel baseplate to tame some of the highs normally found in that position. We feel the added bridge baseplate is a perfect complement to the even height magnets.

This set is for those who like the vintage tones, but need more power from the their pickups
