Expert Review

Seymour Duncan spent a great deal of time studying the methods and design of classic Fender Stratocaster pickups from the 1950's in the development of their California 50’s set. Everything from the hand-filed flatwork to the lacquered bobbin emulates the same process that Fender applied to their pickups during this era. And beyond cosmetics, these pickups provide the proper tone that made the world fall in love with the Strat more than half a century ago; bright, glassy tone and a crisp treble sound is achieved thanks to the hand ground Alnico 5 rod magnets and heavy Formvar mag wire with a special wind pattern. Each pickup is wound differently to help provide different dynamics and range for the guitar the neck pickup is standard wound, the middle pickup is reverse wound, and the bridge pickup is overwound. This creates a well-balanced tone for the guitar.Rating: 4.5/5
