ORIGINAL ’57/’62

Straight Outta ’63 

Fender wanted to create a set of authentic sounding retro sounding pickups so they reverse-engineered from a 1963 Stratocaster. These pickups deliver vintage-Strat sound, feel and vibe, with glistening highs and warm lows due in part to the materials used such as formvar wire for bright, glassy tones, cloth wiring and fibre bobbin. The Alnico 5 staggered pole pieces ensure focus and dynamic while balanced tones.
