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
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.
Up-and-coming Filipino shredder Adrian Bono swears by this pickup. He says, "This is my favorite neck pickup of all time. I install a mini-switch to get a wide variety of sounds: full-bore series mode, thick but bright parallel mode, and glassy single-coil mode. This is a killer pickup."
