Fat '50s Stratocaster pickups are loaded with Alnico V magnets with Formvar-coated wire, fiber bobbins, cloth-covered lead wires, and staggered, hand-beveled pole pieces, yielding the glassy highs and warm lows you'd expect from vintage pickups. These pickups don't stop there, however. Hot-rodded wiring also delivers higher output and enhanced bass response, providing you with a healthy dose of twenty-first-century attitude. The tone connoisseurs here at Sweetwater dig the classic, hot-rodded sound of Fat '50s Strat pickups.
