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.

One of the pickups was shorted put
effepunto, 15.09.2020
Expected better quality control from fender custom shop. The neck pickup was short circuited, for a bad welding on the ground wire. Easy fix anyway.

About the sound, I can't find yet a decent eq, still too twangy on the attack. I'm sure it's my problem, but anyway not a fan

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.

Great sound, low (no) hum
Mateii, 31.08.2020
I ended up mounting these pickups in a shielded guitar body and I was impressed about how silent they actually are. There is virtually no 50 - 60 Hz hum coming through.
The output is a bit louder than your standard singlecoil output.
I did not find them to be as "bell-sounding" as I expected them to be.
All in all the offer a great sound full of character.
