Fender Tex-Mex Strat Pickup Set
Fender Tex-Mex Strat Pickup Set, Overview by GAK
Over wound vintage style matched pickup set with tone like a fiery bowl of Texas picante! Alnico 5 magnets and polysol winding wire provide increased output, sparkling highs and warm bottom with classic Strat tone. Middle pickup is reverse wound and reverse polarity for hum canceling in switch positions 2 and 4. These pickups scorch! OEM on the Jimmy Vaughan Stratocaster.
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.
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.
Overwound for tight, clear bass, crisp highs and maximum output that easily kicks an amp into overdrive, Tex-Mex Strat pickups are the ideal choice for players who need a pickup that can go from clean to mean and everything in-between. Perfect for everything from crisp clean tones to earthy Texas grit, Tex-Mex pickups are packed with the rich, vintage-style Fender tone you’ve grown to love.
