Langcaster Ultimate-Lo Three-Pickup Strat Kitset Available

- Press Release

Langcaster in 2004 introduced the Ultimate-Lo® pickups with overdrive. Since then all Langcaster guitars are equipped with these high-end pickups. However there was one disadvantage: Langcaster guitars are relatively expensive because of the materials used. 35.000 year-old beautiful Swamp Kauri takes weeks to machine and finish the body only. So they decided to make the unique Ultimate-Lo® sound available for everyone and in 2005 introduced our Langcaster Ultimate-Lo® three-pickup Strat kitset assembly for a price that every guitarist can afford.

Due to the instant success of this Langcaster kitset Lancaster had to extend their pickup production capacity and hence they now can now also offer this assembly from stock at an attractive price.

Langcaster Ultimate-Lo® three-pickup Strat kitset assembly has the following unique specifications:

Ø Unsurpassed clear and even output over the total frequency spectrum.
Ø Output signal levels that outclass every other single pickup, even the ‘big name’ ones.
Ø A really low output impedance of only 100 Ohms so you can use cables up to 100 metres without any treble loss.
Ø Noise and hum free signal. Better than any other pickup on the market today.
Ø Eight pole magnets in the neck pickup for an even response with heavy string bending
Ø Rigid construction with full electrostatic screening.
Ø Chrome plated pickup housings, sealed pickup coils and brass bushes for the screws.
Ø Glass epoxy SMD PC board incorporating a superior tube-like warm overdrive available at the flick of a switch on par with the best stomp boxes available.
Ø Long battery life. One 9 Volt alkaline battery gives you 1,000 hours of continuous playing.

Apart from the pickups the Langcaster Ultimate-Lo® three-pickup Strat assembly consists of:

· A pick guard with three knobs to hold the pre-wired parts in place.
( It is possible that this pick guard might not fit on your Strat type guitar so then we advise you to relocate all parts into the guard that is on your existing guitar)
· Printed Circuit Board with a pre-amp, overdrive circuit and optional LED connection.
· Toggle switch to activate the overdrive.
· Stereo output jack. The battery disconnects when you withdraw the jack plug.
· 2 x 25K pots for Volume and Tone.
· 1 x 10K pot for drive control of the overdrive
· 1 x 5 Position pickup selector switch.
· 3 x Langcaster Ultimate Lo-impedance pickups with screws and springs.

The assembly comes complete with three Strat style knobs. The battery connection and battery can be installed in the vibrato spring cavity at the back of the guitar. The kit comes prewired. The only thing else you need to obtain is a 9 Volt battery and two hours of your time. Upgrade your own Strat or Strat style guitar in an easy and inexpensive way to a custom built boutique instrument!
