    Super Hot and Noiseless

    Say What?

    I bought a Fender American Standard strat with 3 single coil fat 50 pickups. The pickups sounded amazing, but they picked up electrical signals like crazy. I couldn't shut them up, the minute the drive got too thick or the compressor was even mentioned in the room, it sounded like a 300 lb hornet was coming out of my amp. I bought a noise gate and it helped tremendously (electro-harmonix, top notch stuff!) but being in a band that plays bars was more than the gate could handle (fluorescent lights, neon, etc.). So I ordered the noiseless pickups from Sweetwater, replaced the fat 50's, fired up the Marshall and cranked the distortion... talk about an eyebrow raising moment. I rolled the volume up on the strat and not a peep. I chugged through a few heavy chords, muted the strings and the sound stopped. These are literally quieter than the humbuckers in my Ibanez RG.
    Important notes: no loss in tonal quality, pickups are hot but are right at home from twangy single tones to full body strat tones and produce some brilliant clean tones, clarity is phenomenal. Installation was easy, no crazy wiring required. Careful with internet wiring diagrams, I kept finding diagrams with the yellow wire pickup (which is the bridge pickup according to the fine folks at Fender) in the middle or neck position. I'm not sure that it would make a huge difference, but always go with the manufacturer advice when you can. The poles in the noiseless are all level and very clean where the fat 50's were uneven and very rough looking, I prefer the clean look. Silence is the word of the day, these things are an engineering marvel.
    Last but not least, Sweetwater came through in fine style as always. Everyone knows Sweetwater's customer service is the best in the business. Order with total confidence.

    Great Pickups

    I had a set of these put into my standard strat and they sound incredible! And they eliminate the usual single coil noise issues, they are silent! Hotter than normal, good punch and still have that single coil brightness. If you have been fighting the hum with your strat you should try these babies out, they work as advertised. I bought 2 noise gates before I had these installed and the pickup replacement was my anwer.

    Noiseless and pristine tone

    Replaced the standard single coil pickups in my Classic 50's Strat (MIM) with these hot noiseless pickups. Be advised, these pickups are taller than standard single coils and the MIM Strat body cavity must be routed deeper to accommodate the thicker pickup depth and wires. Very easy installation after routing the body cavity deeper, and following the included wiring diagram. These are stacked humbuckers with ceramic magnets which produce a hotter output, but at a cost of losing some of the warmth of single coils. Do they sound like Fender single coils? No. Are they noiseless? Definitely. Do they sound good? Absolutely for me. My playing style is clean, smooth jazz, blues and light rock. Spending a little time dialing in both guitar and amp eq produced very nice tone with more output and no noise whatsoever. I play in bars and clubs that have neon and fluorescent lighting which make single coils very noisy. After installing the Fender Hot Noiseless pickups I play the same venues now with zero noise. I've received many compliments on how good my Strat sounds with these pickups.

    Fender Hot Noiseless Strat Pickup Set

    I love the sound these pickup give to my '92 Strat. But most importantly I'm writing this review because to the GREAT SERVICE I received from Sweetwater! As Murphy's Law would have it the first set of pickups I received was bad. After much trouble shooting I discovered two of the pickups had shorts in them. Just my luck. But Sweetwater's tech service was with me all the way as I trouble-shot my problem and Paul in sales didn't hesiate to immediately send me a new set of Fender pickups along with a prepaid return slip for the bad set. Yeah it was an adventure but Sweetwater made right what could have been a real ugly situation. Thanks Sweetwater for standing behind your products and delivering SUPER service!!!! You won my business hands down!!!
