Fender's Yosemite Single Coil Pickups have been impressing players around the globe for the last few years. These pickups are made with a blend of Alnico 2 and 4 magnets with plain enamel-coated wire, and an RWRP middle pickup for noise-free operation in positions 2 and 4. With a push/pull tone pot that activates the neck pickup allowing for all 3 pickups at the same time which is exceptionally cool! A master volume, two tone controls, and a 5-way switch allow for easy access to the exact sound you are looking for.
The neck is made from a single piece of maple and carved to a Modern C profile. The back of the neck was finished with a satin finish so it's never sticky or tacky. The fingerboard radius comes in at 9.5" and there are 22 Jumbo Frets installed. The nut width measures in at 1.685" which is a skoosh wider than Vintage which would be 1.650". The result is a little bit of extra space between strings, great for anyone with more than slender fingers.
