A soundtrack of Fender

Harald769, 11.04.2016
The Fender Eric Johnson pickups are a true soundtrack, especially in connection with a Erlestrat with maple neck and a good, sustain-rich tremolo! I love her.

The NeckPU is based on a 54 PU with Alnico 3 magnets. Most of the neck PUs I've played so far have been muddled in the crunch and high-gain range, so I had to screw them pretty deep into the dashboard and still were not quite satisfied. The PU does not matter. And you do not have to screw it into the Pickguard until Ultimo. You have a defined, soft sound, crystal clear and with a punch in the clean area, creamy and really round in the crunch area with a good overdrive pedal. And without fizzy heights. The attack is awesome. The PU responds to the attack with fingers and plectrum and musically reproduces what you can and will elicit from your fingers. With other PUs, I always felt that I had to work more for getting a good sound right away.

The same applies to the Reversed Middle PU, which is based on a 63 PU. It sounds just right for rhythm parts in the Bluesrock, but unfolds even more its potential in the (brum-free) intermediate positions together with the other two PUs. Here too: creamy, defined sound, without pointed heights.

The BridgePU is equipped with Alnico 5 magnets and - yes it is unbelievable - except for Core and Deathmetal pretty much everything. It sounds clean, brilliant in the crunch area and even in the almost full-twisted HighGain channel, the PU is a round, defined and full torn, which does not sound like a thin, pointed, fizzy singlecoil.

The PU set by Eric Johnson is a wonderfully calibrated and coordinated set, which I can recommend from a deep conviction as a sound fetishist. It's not quite as loud as modern single coils, more like a bit hotter vintage set, but what I get from my guitar playing, in which I get a lot with the Volumepoti the individual sounds.

A dynamic, highly musical set for (almost) all styles.

But I should follow a little anecdote:
2007 I bought my Eric Johnson Stratocaster with exactly this PU set as a standard version.
Before I had a strat with very hot and loud PUs. After a year of playing, I imagined I needed more hot PUs. And so began an eight-year-old Soundodyssey. I had Fender Lance Sensor (Blue - Silver - Red), Fender Noiseless, Custom Shop 69, FAT 50s, Seymour Duncan SSL, Texas Special and last but not least even Kloppmann Real 65 pickups. None of these sets made me happy. Either the dynamics were missing, and / or there were too many sharp heights and / or mud.
My original EJ pickups I unfortunately, unfortunately sold. Since February 2016, the set is available for the first time separately. And I hit on, rebuilt the pickups, and ... the sound snapped back in, the long-lost dynamics were there again, an attack I was always looking for; My EJ Strat was once again what she once was: one of the best and most musical strats straight and due to this pickup set.

Sound is taste. But with this set the gourmet is shown.

pickup from fear

10.04.2016
I wanted pickups that sounded good to replace those of my relic 62 that despite having a nice sound lacks a bit of dynamic oomph to say, after mounting the EJ I was shocked by the sound of my coat and become a SRV guitar blues, dynamic, frightening on all 3 pickups, more emphasized on medium-high sound but without forgetting the always present low and round, and still sound pure vintage fender. advice ..... try them
