The Chopper™ is the louder, punchier brother of the Fast Track 1™. More power is concentrated in the mids and low end for a bigger sound with more crunch. It shares the same side-by-side coils and twin-blade construction as the Fast Track 1™, so there are no misaligned poles or string-pull problems. We originally designed it as a bridge pickup to combine with The Cruiser® and Fast Track 1™, but it’s also a good neck pickup when you’ve got a hot humbucker in the bridge position.
The sound of The Chopper™ is a cross between a single-coil and a full-size humbucker, with more body than the single and more clarity than the HB. Excellent choice to fatten tone and increase power of Strat® bridge position, where it can be part of a matched set with 2 Fast Track 1™ pickups or Fast Track 1™ neck and The Cruiser® (DP187) (middle).
Recommended for all positions especially neck and middle.
