If you’re looking for clean, edgy Strat tone that cuts through to the front of the band, then you need the Custom ’54 Strat pickups. The Fender Custom Shop researched the sweetest-sounding Strat pickups from late 1950’s and faithfully reproduced the tonality, output and construction for use on the American Classic Series Strat guitars.
This augmented set of vintage style Strat pickups feature staggered, hand beveled, Alnico 5 magnets and Formvar magnet wire wound for classic bell tones, and clear harmonic enhancement. The bridge pickup is calibrated for increased, balanced output. OEM on the Custom Shop Dick Dale and American Classic Stratocasters.
