Joe Barden Introduces White S-Style Pickups After many requests from Strat players the Joe Barden S-Style pickup is now available in white. Up until now the S-Style pickups were only available in black like their T-Style counterparts. The hue of the white is like a white chocolate color with matte finish and match very well with pearloid, black or plaing white pickguards. The cois are wrapped with clear protective tape to further enhance the look. List price is the same as the black models despite the higher costs of the resins to produce the pickup. They are available form exclusive Barden dealers, $169.95 each. “The best pickups on the planet” –Danny Gatton. Photo courtesy of Barden Engineering.
