Fender Fat '50s Stratocaster Custom Shop Pickups
When it comes to making pickups for the Stratocaster, Fender makes a strong case for not having to travel too far outside of the circle to achieve great-sounding tone. The company’s Custom Shop Fat 50s pickup set accurately recreates the sound that the axe debuted in the 1950's, with a clear, glassy, bright tone. Increased winding in the pickups provides excellent mid-range and a tighter bass response. The middle pickup in this set of three is reverse wound to eliminate any hum that might occur in the 2 and 4 positions. The Alnico 5 magnets also ensure an enhanced dynamic range, meaning that these pickups can convey subtleties regardless of the volume and velocity at which a guitarist is playing.
