No one makes better Fender Style Pickups than the company that invented them! And these are the cream of the crop. Hand wound by Josefina, the Master Pickup Winder at the Fender Custom Shop. These are simply the best that money can buy.
These pickups have some sweet heat to them. A little more oomph than a Vintage Voiced Pickup the Tomatillo's won't melt faces with their heat but they will push a tube amp into drive mode just a little ahead of schedule. If you like a Texas Special but with slightly softer highs and the ability to sweeten up with a little volume and tone control work.
This trio of Hand Wound Tomatillo single-coil pickups share the same lineage as our Ancho Poblano and El Diablo pickups. Clean-sounding, with plenty of chime, the Tomatillo pickups are crafted around alnico 2 magnets, simulating what an aged alnico 5 pickup from the ‘50s might sound like today.
