Fender Custom Shop Custom '69 Strat Pickup Set
Fender Custom Shop Custom '69 Strat Pickup Set, Overview by GAK
Set for Stratocaster The "Summer of Love" doesn't have to end- the '69 Strat pickups have the tone you'll fall in love with. Own the tone that defined an era. For a short period in the late 60's, Fender used a height staggered Alnico 5's and a special grey bobbin which produced clear, transparent highs and thumping lows. Available in white only. Sold as a set of 3.
Some Stratocaster modifications, such as using a matchbook cover to jam the original 3-way pickup switch in the “in-between” positions (effectively creating a five-way switch), have found their way into Fender’s production lines and became some of the standard Strat features used today for the ultimate musical expression.
A Stratocaster sounds great right out of the box, but it’s also incredibly easy to further personalize it to get the precise tone you want. One of the easiest ways to do this is by swapping the pickups. We have a wide variety of aftermarket pickups that you can easily install in your instrument to meet your sonic needs.

Bought these to replace the noiseless pups on an American Deluxe strat. Tone is massively improved as is the individual string articulation due to the pole height on the middle strings. Be aware that the pup covers are different to the noiseless pups as the pole spacing is different so you will not be able to reuse your old pup covers if you didn’t want white (mine were parchment)
Excellent Pickups for the money. I would recommend them any day!
Everything you might spect from a custom shop product. It sound clear and crispy and full of dinamics then when you push them with overdrive they sound nasal with tons of low end but keeping the note definition. It transform my strat.
does what you expect
Used these to replace the default pickups in a Squier Strat. Very pleased with the improvement in tone.
