Fender Original '57/'62 Strat Pickup Set
Fender Original '57/'62 Strat Pickup Set, Overview by GAK
Set for Stratocaster Redesigned for a truer vintage tone. Reverse engineered from a coveted '63 vintage Strat, these pickups deliver the original vintage Strat sound. The staggered, beveled edge Alnico 5 magnets with Formvar magnet wire produce glistening highs and warm lows that are unmistakably vintage. This is the tone.
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.
Fender Original ’57/’62 Strat® single-coil pickups are reverse-engineered from a 1963 Stratocaster guitar. These pickups deliver vintage-Strat sound, feel and vibe, with glistening highs and warm lows.
