Fender Custom Shop Fat '60s Strat pickups deliver sweet 1960s single-coil Stratocaster sound with plenty of crisp articulation. The overwound design gives these pickups added low-end punch for an extra shot of modern attitude.

Custom Shop Fat '60s pickups are outfitted with beveled alnico 2 magnets, which offer warm lows, rich midrange and mellow highs, capturing the sound of aged pickups from the early '60s for luscious vintage-inspired tones. The middle pickup is also reverse-wound reverse-polarity (RWRP) for superior hum cancelation.

Best pickups I’ve ever played in a Strat that has to go from clean to dirty. They sound pretty much as good as Fat 50’s clean - a little thicker and more bite. But react WAY better to drive pedals and amp distortion. I’ve added them to three of my Strats now and about to do a 4th. I’ve had Lollars and Duncans and Fralins and Dimarzios and Kinman and Bareknuckles and all kinds of Fenders through the years and these are my faves for punch and versatility. They do it all well unless you’re looking for a very low output vintage tone.
