    Got a 2014 American Standard Strat but wasn't wild about the Fat 50's pickups. Wanted them to sound more like My 60th Anniversary Commemorative. These pickups nailed thanks to Brian's help at sweetwater. Ordered on Friday night and they arrived on Monday. Awesome service. You won't go wrong with either the pickups or Sweetwater. Thanks

    Vintage Strat Sound

    Wanted to purchase the commemorative strat, but didn't have the funds. Decided to give these a try in a MIM strat. Very impressed with the results. This is the sound I've been looking for in a strat. If you're a blues player and tone freak, like me, you'll really love these pickups. Clear as a bell and typical "quack" in position 2 and 4. Takes overdrive really well. Middle pickup is not reverse wound, so be prepared for a little hum in positions 2 and 4. If you're into distorted or heavier tones, I would not choose these. If you're looking for vintage strat tones, these may be the Holy Grail.

    very nice

    I recently wanted to up grade my mim strat. After checking out various pickups at a local guitar store, I stumbled on these anniversary pickups on a similar guitar as mine... I was blown away by the pure vintage strat tone from these . I even compared them to the custom shop 54's and felt they were better. These are alnico 3s and the custom shops are alnico 5s. The clarity and natural string sustain was astounding. The 3s having less string pull would explain that so I'm told. I purchased a set and installed them myself expecting their to be some difference since mine is a mim strat and the one I tried at the store was a real one. But I have to say I can't tell the difference. these pickups sound absolutely fantastic.. If your looking for that vintage strat tone this is the real Mc Coy. They sound great with some OD also...... Couldn't be more pleased with this purchase.
