Apache single coils are based on the rounder, fatter tones of the original '54 to '57 coils. Deep bottom end with a bell-like chime in the highs and rich, wide mid-range produce a crystal-clear clean tone without ever sounding harsh or thin. Overdriven tones sound full and crunchy with plenty of body for single note work. Scatter-wound by hand with vintage correct Heavy Formvar wire, the bridge coil is wound a little hotter to give better balance across the set. The calibrated Alnico III magnets are hand-beveled and set in fiber board flat work in either the original '54 stagger with low G magnet or the more common '56 stagger. The low magnetic pull of the Apache allows for excellent dynamics and perfect intonation.
