Here's what Bare Knuckle say about "The Apache" Pickups

Pure, full-bodied early '50s single coil set with exceptional natural sustain and low string pull from the Alnico III magnets.

Apache single coils are based on the rounder, fatter tones of the original '54 to '57 coils. Deep bottom end with a bell-like chime in the highs and rich, wide mid range produce a crystal-clear clean tone without ever sounding harsh or thin. Overdriven tones sound full and crunchy with plenty of body for single note work. Scatter-wound by hand with vintage correct Heavy Formvar wire, the bridge coil is wound a little hotter to give better balance across the set. The calibrated Alnico III magnets are hand-bevelled and set in fibre board flat work in either the original '54 stagger with low G magnet or the more common '56 stagger. The low magnetic pull of the Apache allows for excellent dynamics and perfect intonation.
