Comments about Fender Tex Mex Pickups set of 3:

Replaced American Standard pickups with these. They are louder and brighter. The response is tighter too. Pretty much the same as far as single coil hum. You get noise cancelling with the 2 and 4 position like the standard pickups. Overall a great upgrade.

Killer upgrade

By Walter J

from las vegas

Comments about Fender Tex Mex Pickups set of 3:

I picked up a new Squier Affinity Strat for a project guitar and ordered the Tex Mex pups and new Fender pots ( no hum like the stock pups did ) and I tell you what if you weren't looking at the guitar you would think it was a USA Fender strat with Tex Mex pups, the guitar was like one in 10k that I didn't have to do any filing to the fret ends they were so smooth, the tuners actually work great too, for being stock Squier they stay in tune no slop at all and I hardtailed the tremolo to stop High E string breakage but still have use of the tremolo bar, so if you have a project guitar you cant beat these pups at $99.00 for the set they are well worth getting if you want that real vintage style tone.

Very Nice

By Ron Smith

from alexandria VA

Comments about Fender Tex Mex Pickups set of 3:

So, first I should say that I am a Les Paul guy. So, I bought a cheaper Strat style guitar for a little variety. I wasn't in love with the tone...till I got these. What a difference. Plug this in, turn up the gain, and you are ready to crank out Cross Canadian Ragweed, Jackyl, Skynyrd, etc. The crunch is amazing. I may have to go out and by an actual Fender now...

Comments about Fender Tex Mex Pickups set of 3:

I bought these and had them installed in my 2000 MIM Fender Strat and boy did they bring it alive. Amazing tone now and just makes me love that strat more and more. Great cheap pickups. Fender baby!

Promising

By Jim

from lima, oh

Comments about Fender Tex Mex Pickups set of 3:

These sound amazing in my MIM Fender. I've never heard the real texas specials but after reading reviews on these a went ahead and got these. I consider myself a novice guitar player but I think my guitar sounds just as good as any strat out there. Some of my more experienced friends agree. If money is no issue for you, buy the expensive ones. If you like a lot of bang for your buck, don't be afraid to give these a shot, you'll be glad you did.

what a difference!

By jeepster260

from detroit, mi

Comments about Fender Tex Mex Pickups set of 3:

I have a 30 year old Lotus Strat knockoff (I'll wait for the laughing to die down) and I am happy to say I have upgraded since then. Anyway, I wanted to give the guitar to a friends son, but couldn't with the horrible electronics on it, so I bought these pickups and all Fender upgrades to go with it (cts pots, fender 5 way stitch, output jack) all totaled about $100 bucks. Worth every penny!!! It sounds as good as my american 52 tele reissue! (seriously!) if you have any experience in soldering you can do this project. And there are lots of support downloads on fender.com to help as well. Only warrning: if you are upgrading a non-Fender ax with Fender parts be read for a little "tweaking" to make everything fit; a dremel tool with small routing blade worked very well for this. One more suggestion; is you are upgrading pickups on a junker, upgrade ALL electronics, you won't be sorry!!

A fantastic upgrade- very pleased

By Gabriel Becker

from Indianapolis, IN

Comments about Fender Tex Mex Pickups set of 3:

when upgrading a strat for blues most go for the texas specials (which are nice pickups) but for some reason, the tex-mex pickups are chosen less. I've played both, and I'd like to say that for the money,.....the tex mex are the way to go. There ARE differences between the texas specials and tex mex, but those differences are very minimal. they both use the same alnico magnets, and both add a "gritty & crisp" sound. The main difference is that texas specials are made in the USA, and tex mex are made in Mexico. The tex mex pickups are less than half the price of the texas specials. I recently upgraded a MIM strat with the tex-mex pickups. All I can say is WOW! sharp, crisp, round, and when cranked up a bit very gritty. The improvement over standard pickups is staggering. The fender MIMs are nice instruments, but after a proper setup and the installation of these tex mex pups, my strat is much more comparable to high end USA strat in the $1,500 price range. I would recomend this upgrade to ANYONE. you won't regret it.

Great Classy Bluesy Clean Tone at an afordable price

By Josh

from Chicago, Illinois

Comments about Fender Tex Mex Pickups set of 3:

These come standard on my Fender American Standard Strat HSS, and they are fantastic. They have a great, glassy, classic Strat tone that are great for blues. But they are also real versatile, I love 'em with overdrive too, which gives you a great, Texas Blues sound, which I guess is good because of its title. They can easily contenc with the Custom Shop models like the Texas Specials.If I could, I'd get one for the Bridge to complete my set rather than the Humbucker, but still, great great pickups. If you want nice, clean, clear, classic Strat tone, but have a budget, get these pickups, even if you can spend all the money in the world, get these pickups. Great stuff.

All the Texas You Can Handle

By Christopher Heady

from Indianapolis, IN

Comments about Fender Tex Mex Pickups set of 3:

I was skeptical about these pick-ups and the reviews others left about them. Now I highly recommend them. Here is Why: I did as much research as I could comparing the USA Texas Specials and these Tex Mex Pickups, and I found that they were nearly identical. I pulled the trigger and bought a set, then loaded them in my home brew strat and they rocked my socks off!!! THE BEST sounding strat that I have ever played!!! I totally recommend these to everyone. The bridge pickup screams, the middle pickup yields beautifully, and the neck pickup is so sweet. I used to only use to use the 2 and 4 positions on strats, but now I use all five positions just to be able to heart the full range of these beauties!

Sounds right

By Tee

from Maine

Comments about Fender Tex Mex Pickups set of 3:

I've used Am Made 'Texas Specials' and prefer these 'Tex-Mex' pick-ups better.They are less muddy,with a slightly 'Hi-Fi' flavor to them. To my ears they are help a strat sound like a strat should..with lots of 'oomph' when tirned up and clarity at lesser volumns...very usable...
