Electric Guitar Pickup Fender Strat 57/62 Vintage Set
Fender now offers a variety of good replacement pickups for a wide range of applications. Since early 95, almost all pickups that are used in their guitars and bass guitars are available from Fender.
The 57/62 pickups are mounted as standard in the '57 or '62 American Vintage Strats. This is the reason why they are named because they are exact copies of the pickups of a great-sounding original '63 Strat. Alnico V magnets with rounded edges and Formvar wire create shimmering highs and warm basses. This is THE sound.

The Fender Strat or Stratocaster as they were originally named as they came on the market in 1954 was the absolute sensation. Such a radical guitar design was revolutionary. The shape of the Stratocaster had with traditional guitar shapes nothing in common - 2 low-cut cutaways, 3 pickups, a functioning vibrato system and comfortable shapings were unique at this time. Quickly the Stratocaster prevailed in the market and is still the most successful (and most copied !!) guitar model ever. For Strat models an extensive spare parts and conversion program is available.
