Fender Texas Special Strat Set

Pickup Set Strat Texas Special

There is probably not a guitar in the world that has been played by as many people as the Fender Stratocaster. And hardly any other guitars allow for such hardware flexibility and DIY as the Strat, so it should come as no surprise that Fender offers a huge range of different pickups. These pickups are used in many Fender Strats from the Custom Shop. The Fender Stevie Ray Vaughan Singature Strat and the '93/'94 Limited Strat get their characteristic sound from the Texas Special Strat pickups.

The middle pickup is reverse wired in design to reduce the humming in the middle position. The pickups in the set are designed to work in harmony with each other.

The characteristics: Loud vintage sound with rich bass and mids, but also sufficient treble to produce convincing a clean sound. This makes it the ideal pickup set for people looking for a slightly more powerful and fatter vintage Strat sound. The set brings the legendary Stevie Ray Vaughan sound well within reach - no surprises there, though, since his own Signature Strat is equipped with these exact pickups.

This pickup is "to blame" for the successful comeback of Fender pickups.

Great for a hotter blues sound

Rosarius, 19.03.2018
I put these into an old (1981) Squier Strat to give it a more raucous Stevie Ray Vaughan type of sound. They're great. Played through a Fender valve amp, they're exactly the sound I wanted and cheaper from Thomann than the vendors in the UK. I can't comment on how easy they were to fit; I have someone do that for me, but it took him no time at all.

Excellent upgrade for Stratocaster

SteveRob, 07.07.2015
If you find the pickups on your Stratocaster to sound a little thin, these pickups could be just what you need.

Texas Specials are overwound to give a bit more output so drive an amp that little bit harder. The extra windings also lose some of the harshness that you find with lower output Strat pickups.
