Get that Stevie Ray snarl.

Fender Custom Shop Texas Special Strat Pickups give you that classic blues sound. Take a set of vintage Fender Strat pickups and overwind them for more midrange, punch, and output and you get pickups with Attitude! Featured in the Stevie Ray guitar, they are calibrated for each position with a reverse coil, reverse-wound middle pickup for noise cancellation. If you want plenty of midrange bark and crisp high-end bite, get these Special Strat Pickups. Set of 3.

  • Custom Shop Texas Special Pickups

    As reviewed by AApollo02 on 11/1/2006

    Made famous by Stevie Ray Vaughn that unique and beautiful tone comes to life when you plug a set of these in. The tones are beautiful and ring out giving your guitar that knarl and extra bite. I have a Mexican Strat with a set of these in it and other then the differences in the bridge i truly can not tell the difference between my foreign made strat and an american. They are also ideal for multi-styles of music such as rock, blues, country, and indie. I recomend that if you are a strat owner you invest in a set of these. They will take your playing to a whole other level.

    I've got a Mexican Strat, and I put the Texas Specials in it. They are quiet, and smooth. The stock pickups just had to much hiss for me. It really woke up a sleeping giant.This guitar sounds like an american strat to me.

  • I give 'em 6 Stars. Period.

    As reviewed by 'Dullboy' Martin on 1/28/2010

    OK, look...I am not one of these guys who rants and raves about something when I like it. But, lemme tell ya...these Texas Special Strat PU's are phenomenal! Fender has done it this time. They still have that signature Strat sound on 'em, but the lows are much chunkier, the highs are more bell-like, and the mids have an animalistic 'bite' to 'em. Great output, too. I had them installed on my '94 MIM Fender Strat by a master guitar tech with 37 years experience, and even HE wanted to get a set after he heard 'em. So, take my word for it, fellow Blues/Rock enthusiasts...if you want a more chunky, vivid blues tone, these are the real deal, and worth every fraction of each penny. Slap some Ernie Ball 10's on ur axe, and let the good times rock...and roll.
