Decent tone, but NOTHING like the real thing
Jenna, 04.08.2020
Bought these purely to compare with the real thing... a set of actual ‘59 Strat pickups. I doubt that anybody will be surprised to know these sound like Strat pickups... but thats as far as it goes. They have very little of the airyness and bass response of the originals.

I measured the sets under load, using a professional LCR meter and the differences became apparent... the Q was miles different, the inductance differed significantly and the capacitance was higher too. So my subjective opinion from listening was confirmed by measurement.

If you need a fairly low output, bright Strat pickup set, these are really okay... but don’t believe the ‘59 hype... it simply isn’t true imo.

THE Vintage sound
Josinka, 12.05.2019
This is a great set of pick-ups.They remind me to the early Fender Stratocaster. I strongly recommend those pick-ups

Super
BigHorse, 18.02.2019
J'ai mis ces micros sur ma Strat (devenue PartCaster) et je les adore.
Le son du micro manche est rond et chaud.
Le son du micro chevalet est claquant à souhait !
Personnellement, j'ai installé un switch qui me permet de joindre le micro chevalet et manche ensemble, et cette combination est sublime ! (Un peu proche d'un son de Tele).
(Je n'ai jamais aimé le son du micro milieu donc je ne donnerai pas d'avis)

Nice sound
Migüel, 19.12.2018
My American Standard sounds much better now.
Although, since they the three pickups are the same, it's hard to notice the difference between neck and middle pickups when soloing. I dare to say that a lot of guilt fall on my crappy amp.
Happy with the buying though.

The authentic SRV sound
StormWind, 04.12.2018
I've bought this set in order to complete my 2005 Highway One Strat restoring.
This set can achieve the most sought after Stratocaster sound, and really translates all the frequencies from the guitar woods.
With the right string gauges and a ts9 style pedal it is possible to play in the style of SRV without busting the bank... and trust me, the satisfaction is guaranteed!
