Fender Custom Shop Fat '50s Strat pickups deliver the single-coil 1950s Stratocaster sound you know and love. They have been uploaded with a bit more oomph across the board, making these pickups play nicely with both modern and vintage amplifiers. Install a set of these into any guitar, from a Squier to any Fender MIM import model and you will have an absolutely fantastic tone at your fingertips.
Hot-rodded wiring design delivers enhanced bass response and an extra shot of 21st-century attitude. If you have ever been to our shop and played 5 or 6 Custom Shop Strat’s, then you have heard these pickups. They have been a long time favorite of our’s and… judging from how many we’ve sold, the top choice for many of you as well! These pickups have their roots in the ’50s but with a little more output making the volume and tone controls on your guitar more useful than ever. These were even offered for a year or 2 on The American Standard because of their broad appeal. When put together with classic Stratocaster controls, the Fender Custom Shop Fat 50's Single Coil Pickups behave beautifully. Set your tube amp to overdrive and then control the amount of drive with the volume control on the guitar. The tone rolls off sweetly as well, turning a perhaps treble-heavy guitar sound more tamed.
Need them installed? We have a full service repair shop and would be more than happy to do that for you! We specialize in electronic upgrades including caps, pots, wire, pickup install, and cool mod's like the PTB mod or blender control that allow for the bridge and neck pickups to work together.
