The quintessential pickup set to capture the essence of the 1950s Strat®. Not only do they sound like the pickups of the 50s, these pickups even look like the period issued specimens! Perfect clarity with that famous 50s bell tone! Vintage enthusiasts simply love the '56-57 era!

This set offers a nice balance of highs, punchy lows and a hint of mid range, just like the pickups from the 50s. The period correct constructions delivers vintage warmth like all Planet Tone pickups, where you can expect vibrancy, tonal dynamics and that true 50s life! The set comes fully calibrated to offer a superb balance of tone in all three positions, perfectly highlighting the nuances of your Strat®. You will also find that incredible “quack” that Stratocasters® are known for coming from those famed “notch” positions.

The PERFECT Strat Tone!!!

I love clean to overdriven vintage fender tones. I can't get enough of the old Jerry Garcia strat tone. I have been looking for the perfect strat tone for years, experimenting with different' modern Alnico 5's, Texas blues style pickups, and 1960's style pickups, never finding the tone I really wanted. Planet Tone had these out to me quick, I installed them the day I got them, and they immediately blew me away. My love for these pickups will not fade away. The are perfect.
