After the success of the Blackguard Tele Series it seemed logical to extend the concept and produce a collection of vintage correct Strat sets based on customer demand for coils from specific eras. The PAT Pend Series centres in on the two most requested periods between '59-'62 and '63-'65.

The introduction of a rosewood 'slab' fingerboard in 1959 was a milestone in Strat tone, arguably producing a warmer tone than the earlier one-piece maple necks. The '59 Slab Board coils are made with vintage correct black fibreboard flatwork, hand-bevelled Alnico V magnets and scatter-wound by hand with 42AWG Heavy Formvar wire. The tone is hollow and woody with tight, punchy, bottom-end snap and crisp, clear highs. Both chording and single note playing is wonderfully percussive and the moderate vintage output is perfect for extra cut with a slab board neck.
