The Fender Custom Shop Fat '50s Stratocaster Pickup Set

The Fender Custom Shop Fat '50s Stratocaster Pickup Set

The Fender Custom Shop Fat ‘50s Stratocaster Pickup Set has been one of our most ordered set for years! Using the earliest Strat pickups as the foundation for the Fat 50s, then adding some modern features like RWRP (or Reverse Wound, Reverse Polarity) that allows for noiseless operation in positions 2 and 4, and hand beveling the staggered magnets for excellent balance across strings. The Enhanced Bass Response of the Fat 50s is something to behold! Never before has your Single Coil Loaded Strat sounded so beefy!
The Fender Custom Shop Hand-Wound Ancho Poblano Stratocaster Pickup Set

The Fender Custom Shop Hand-Wound Ancho Poblano Stratocaster Pickup Set

The Fender Custom Shop Handwound Ancho Poblano Stratocaster Pickup set is quickly becoming a favorite for players who prefer some heat from their single coil’s. The Ancho Poblano set is rooted deeply in Fender’s Vintage World with Alnico 3 Magnets in the neck and middle (the same magnets from the 1955 set) and Formvar wires while enamel coating on the bridge magnets and Alnico 5 magnets really turn up the heat! The Handwound Ancho’s took a classic Fender recipe and added some seriously smokey heat to the mix!
The Fender Custom Shop Twisted Tele Pickup Set for Telecaster

The Fender Custom Shop Twisted Tele Pickup Set for Telecaster

The Fender Custom Shop Twisted Tele Pickup Set is our neck and neck favorite with the Nocaster Pickup set. The Twisted pickups are rooted in the vintage world but modernized with some sleek, under the hood design changes that have made this the favorite pickup of many Telecaster Players.
