Expert Review

If you’re looking for the classic blues sound of the 1950s, Fender’s Custom Shop Fat 50s Stratocaster guitar pickups faithfully recreate that sound that guitarists fondly look back on as a Golden Age of the genre. Providing a glassy, clear, and bright tone, these pickups also provide a bit more bite as well, which is perfect for blues players looking to make the guitar sing and get a little nasty but not too aggressive. The increased winding in the pickups promotes a greater mid-range, while also providing a tighter bass response. The middle pickup in this set is reverse wound to cancel any hum that may occur in the 2 and 4 positions. If you’re looking to emulate the sounds of Hendrix and his 60s contemporaries, these aren’t necessarily the pickups for you, but if the clean and contained sound of the 50s is what you’re going for, there are few pickups that can really compete with the Custom Shop Fat 50s.Rating: 5/5
