Fender Custom 69 Strat PU Set


Original Pickup Set@There is probably no other guitar in the world that has been played by as many guitarists as the Fender Stratocaster. There is hardly an instrument that offers so much scope for tinkering around on, so it is no wonder that Fender offers a whole range of different pickups for their star model.

The Custom 69 Strat pickup (here in a set of 3) produces the sound of the legendary Strats of the late 60s: clear, airy highs, but also enough mids to penetrate even rough sound realms. Strat pure sound!

Great Pickups but....
Simple Simon 12.04.2019
... slightly mixed experience of buying with Thomann.

The pickups are everything I imagined and more now they are in and working, love them: )

This was the first time I had bought from Thomann and it took 3 deliveries before I was satisfied.

1st delivery: You can imagine a pickup box isn't big however they were sent in a much larger box than needed with no additional packing. Outer box looked OK on delivery but when opened I was less impressed. Outer cardboard sleeve torn and hinges missing on plastic box (but not in the packaging), I'd say they had been returned by a previous customer. Pickups returned to Thomann.

2nd set: Received a week later, still in oversized box without padding/bubble wrap. Seemed fine, installed but one of the pickups was dead (tested with multi-meter), wiring seemed fine must have been a break in the wind. Pickups returned to Thomann.

3rd set: Received a week later, specialist team had sorted the order and was well packaged. Pickups installed and very happy.

Like I say mixed feelings, I feel packaging should be improved not just for special attention orders. Thomann replaced without quibble, though I provided decent evidence to support returns. Got there eventually took around 3 weeks normally you'd expect it in one week.

I will buy again from Thomann as they offer good value. I'd like to see improved packaging but can't complain about their returns policy.


Fantastic tone, no humcancelling positions (2&4)

These have an absolutely fantastic tone! Coming from regular stock USA pickups, Lace Sensors, Dimarzio Areas and Haussel pickups, these were absolutely THE tone I'd heard on countless records and imagined in my mind when I thought about what a Strat should play and feel like. The middle pickup isn't reverse wound so positions 2 and 4 hum as well... had plenty of problems with that in the studio.

If you can't handle the hum, get an Ilitch noisecancelling backplate - loses the hum and retains that elusive high frequency sweetness that the Areas, Lace Sensors and regular Fender Noiseless pickups lack.

So I got these pickups looking for a Mayer or Stevie tone and I got so much more than that. Very versatile, quite punchy but also bell like, I played from blues to heavy rock with these. I really like them, I would only change them for something more boutique like Fralin or Lollars.


Modify an MIM Strat.

i asked Thomann to must these on my MIM Standard Strat and it sounds now like an American but for less than a grand. Fabulous authentic tones particularly the neck and neck/middle and middle/bridge combos!
great sound and on a budget strat you'll find the build quality so good that the only thing missing is the pups!
