Kent Armstrong® Rory Gallagher® Signature Pickups
Rory Gallagher influenced many great guitarists around the world to such extent that someone like Jimi Hendrix when asked in interview “What’s it like to be the best guitarist in the world?” responded with “I dunno, ask Rory Gallagher.” Kent Armstrong’s® Rory Gallagher series was created directly from the pickups currently residing in 7 of Rory’s most loved stage instruments including his world-renowned 1961 Fender® Stratocaster®. Kent in partnership with the Gallagher family hand measured each of these pickups and rebuilt them to spec in both alnicos 3 and alnico 5 magnet versions. The alnico 3 versions are how these pickups respond today, with aged warmth as if you opened the case and plugged it in right now. The Alnico 5 versions are a bit punchier and brighter with a sharper attack and response as if the pickups were new. Everyone knows that there were variances in vintage pickups. Some were better than others. These are the pickups that Rory used on his recordings and on stage where his epic performances still resonate in the hearts of fans and guitarists alike. All these sets are hand-built in Kent Armstrong’s® shop in Vermont. You can’t get any closer to the mojo without owning the originals!
