The Fender Pure Vintage '65 Strat Pickup Set absolutely captures the sound of a timeless era in music history. From vintage bobbin construction to genuine original-era cloth wiring, all Fender Pure Vintage pickups are wound to precise specifications for authentic, traditional Fender tone and performance. So if you are looking to nail the Surf Sound of the mid-1960s in a Stratocaster, this is the pickup for you! It plays clean beautifully thanks to their low output but they get dirty in an exceptionally musical way, even playing well with distortion and fuzz pedals. But a cranked up, super wet Deluxe Reverb or Dual Showman (if you are brave enough) is where these pickups really shine.
No other pickups give you the powerful, clean and clear surf rock tones of mid-'60s Stratocaster guitars like dutifully constructed, meaty-sounding Pure Vintage '65 Strat pickups. From the Enamel-coated magnet wire which delivers warm vintage-style tones to the Alnico 5 magnets which add focus and enhanced dynamics. The Staggered polepieces balance volume and output across every string and these pickups are wax potted, with period-correct cloth wire and fiber bobbin construction.
Low output makes this pickup set sound sweet and pedal-friendly.
