The Monterey Pop Festival of 1967 was a watershed event in American music. When it was over, the world had heard and felt the sound of a Strat® in the hands of a master. Single-coils in 1967 were bright and very clean. And, of course, they hummed. DiMarzio captured the classic bright and clean sound but totally eliminated the hum with their patented Area™ technology. They have also reduced magnet pull by 40% for improved sustain and clarity! The Area 67™ has the chime of 60s pickups, and the 2 and 4 positions are light, bright and quack-happy.
