    For sale is my Kinman Impersonator 54 loaded strat pickguard. These pickups are noiseless but will produce pure old school stratocaster sounds. The wiring system allows for a no soldering installation and replaces the second tone control with a blend pot for the neck (or bridge) pickup.

    If you search for "kinman impersonator 54" on google, one of the first results this review from soundonsound.com.

    I'd like $300 + shipping. These are some of the best strat pickups that you can buy.

    The shielding covers nearly the entire back of the pickguard. I'm not sure if it is aluminum or something else but it is rigid and sturdy. The wiring is straight from Kinman and is very clean.

    Note the switches! One toggles between different caps and the other switches the blend pickup - you can choose whether the blend knob adds in the neck or bridge pickup.

    I have several guitarists that I do work for and Kinman's ARE the standard for noiseless single coil pup's. Just the pickups alone go for $100 each, to get them in a pickguard with the optional blend at that price is a hell of a bargain..
    Bump for a great deal.

    Bump for excellent pickups! I installed a set of their "blues" strat pickups in a friend's guitar and they are the best sounding strat pickups I've heard. Whoever buys this will not regret it!
