About This Listing


The Impersonator 54 has all the shimmering highs, highly transparent (noticeably scooped) midrange, twang and deep bass of the best examples of new Stratocaster pickups. The strings can be pounded but the sound won’t crunch at loud room volume. It has lightening fast response to pick attack and easily tracks jaw dropping picking gymnanastics which is great for shredders. Low magnetic string pull for longer sustain and less string crash and fret buzz ... but remarkably high output. So high it will balance perfectly with a bridge humbucker. The Impersonator 54 is the only vintage Strat pickup that balances with a bridge humbucker .... and if that's not enough it will also have less hum. This could not be achieved with conventional technology, it took several revolutionary technologies that were pioneered and developed over many years and Patented by Kinman. The name was chosen for the obvious sonic similarity to Fender’s CS 54 and was developed at the request of Hank Marvin of The Shadows to achieve his 60’s twangy instrumental lead guitar sound, without hum. Position 2 and 4 are totally authentic Knopfler-esque. Number of parts in this pickup: 169 Number of parts in normal pickup: 9 Number of parts in other brand noiseless: 23
