Custom Shop Texas Special Pickups

By AApollo02

from Hollywood, MD

Comments about Fender Custom Shop Texas Special Strat Pickups:

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.

Amazing srv tone

By 123

from Geneva

Comments about Fender Custom Shop Texas Special Strat Pickups:

These pickups are amazing. After installing these just put on some 11's and your guitar will come to life. With heavier strings it makes the tone so much better. The tone is so rich it sounds just like srv. I highly suggest buying these to improve your tone. Can play with any type of music except heavy metal.

Smokin

By Strings

from Baltimore

Comments about Fender Custom Shop Texas Special Strat Pickups:

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.

Texas special pickups

By justin2112

from Columbus, OH

Comments about Fender Custom Shop Texas Special Strat Pickups:

I bought these pickups to swap into a standard made in mexico strat. I love the texas special pickups. These pickups are the perfect way to wake you strat up a little more. They still provide a traditional strat sound, but just a little less twang and a little more bite. Love the feel of your strat but want a more edgy dirty sound? No need for a new guitar, here is your solution.

Killer tone

By Tony Paul Dunn

from New Orleans, LA

Comments about Fender Custom Shop Texas Special Strat Pickups:

I have several guitars of which 3 are Strats. The most expensive one is an '08 American Standard, the cheapest is a Mexican Strat loaded with Texas Specials. I only use the American Standard if I break a string on stage. I think that says it all. These pickups can turn any decent axe into your favorite at a very decent price. You just can't beat 'em!

crisp and tough

By Wells

from Minneapolis

Comments about Fender Custom Shop Texas Special Strat Pickups:

My Dad and I wired these pickups into my Squier (yeah, I know, I've got a Celestion equipped Fender 25R to give to my brother, too), and it roared to the point I didn't know what to do with the extra bite, which comes alive with good amplification. There's like 600 extra windings in each pickup, making them hot, hot, hot! Take a snapshot of Mark Knopfler, Albert Collins, or one of the Vaughn Boys and jam it into your fav style.

Hot sounds

By Hellmark

from Winfield, MO

Comments about Fender Custom Shop Texas Special Strat Pickups:

The Stratocaster is a great, versatile guitar, with a sound that can fit in anywhere. Now sometimes, its nice to take something great, and add in a little spice, to give it some extra punch. This is where the Fender Custom Shop works their magic with the Texas Special pickups. I've had these for a few years now in one of my guitars, and compared to my stocker Strat, these pickups just make things seem more alive, especially when I crank up the overdrive. No muddy sound at all, like some brands are, these are clear as a bell. They are pricey, I do have to admit that, but nothing good in life comes cheap.

I give 'em 6 Stars. Period.

By 'Dullboy' Martin

from Warren, Michigan

Comments about Fender Custom Shop Texas Special Strat Pickups:

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.

Truly Amazing

By Steve

from Memphis, Tn.

Comments about Fender Custom Shop Texas Special Strat Pickups:

I have a MIM fat strat that I changed up to a standard strat. I put some tex mex pickups in to start, but just was not what I was looking for. I ordered these in March and finally recieved them today. When put these in, my jaw hit the floor. These things are truly amazing. As I moved from one pickup to another it was like Stevie was right there. Each pickup has its own sound. The highs sing and the mids growl. Very good low end as well. Very good for country, blues, and sothern rock. If you want to jazz up your strat, I say this is the way to go.
