I put this in as a replacement on my Fender 50th Anniversary Edition Strat and was blown away with the sound this pickup puts out. I used to keep my selector switch in either the 4 or 5 position. Now I don't take it off the 1 and 2 position. One gripe with Fender, I bought my 50th Anniversary Strat brand new in 2004 (only 2000 of them made) and was very dissappointed when the bridge pickup went belly up after less than 8 years of easy use! I had the pickup toned out at a guitar shop and the tech couldn't believe it was dead either but there was absolutely no signal coming out from it. Good thing is, I got to use this amazing N3 pickup and will probably replace my neck pickup too with one of these.
