I bought these little pieces of heaven as part of a refinishing project over the summer I bought a used Squier Strat, threw out the electronics and tuners first of all. I stripped the dark blue finish that was layed on pretty thick and choked the tone. I tinted the body and headstock slightly and applied an ultra thin satin nitrocellulose coat. It resonates so much that it makes a haunting sound even when you play it unplugged. The stock pickups were noisy, and very weak and bad sounding. So I put in these pickups (with the help of a guitar repairsman to make sure everything was in place) and set them right, and set the guitar intonation and action correctly (I use all nickel strings for a warmer sound), and BAM! this cheap little guitar became a work of art. The pickups sound so articulate and glassy, and suprisingly can get a good amount of quality distortion through my Micro Cube. These are more than I had hoped for, and have made my guitar playing even better. I cannot recomend these enough for any single coil pickup guitar

I received the Fender Vintage Noiseless P/U set and started to install them on the new Strat pickguard I purchased. I noticed right away one p/u was wired with a black/yellow pair of wires vs. the other two with black/white wires. The diagram sent with the p/u set doesn't point out where the black/yellow wired p/u goes. I went to the Fender website and looked up the wiring diagram for the American Standard Strat. (it uses the same p/u's) This diagram is in color and shows the black/yellow wired p/u is the bridge p/u. I also noticed that the p/u wires on all three p/u's are the same length. This means which ever p/u you put in the neck position is too far from the switch for the wires to reach. The bridge p/u needs its white wire to be about two inches longer to get routed properly and reach the switch. I spoke to Fender Customer Relations and the set is being sent back.

Confusing Installation

By mcpugsta

from Austin, TX

Comments about Fender Vintage Noiseless Strat Pickup Set:

I bought these to put on my Strat and it came with very confusing instructions. I eventually just got fed up with it and took my guitar and the pickups to have them installed professionally. Although when I got the guitar back it sounded great. The only thing I regret is not trying a guitar with the Hot Noiseless Pickups on it first.

Unbelievable - One Small Warning

By Kris

from Merrimack, NH

Comments about Fender Vintage Noiseless Strat Pickup Set:

I was pretty displeased with the sound of my new MIM strat. The ceramic pickups were extremely harsh sounding to the extent that it was painful to my ears. Since I love the MIM strat, I purchased these vintage pickups and I am incredibly impressed with the tone. I play through a Blues Junior most of the time and the thing that immediately struck me was the beautiful clear bell tone and natural harmonics. The made my guitar sound like a custom shop model. I am sure that some of the other reviewers may have gotten a bad batch or something, as I couldn't imagine a better tone from a pickup. The only caveat is that the wires are not long enough for the neck pickup to comfortably reach the switch. On that pickup, I actually had splice it with the existing wire. I am no electrical engineer, but it worked fine. Not sure why Fender wouldn't provide longer wires. Overall though, these pickups are remarkable. I would say that I am a blues/classic rock player and that I consider the pickups to match this style.

great pickups

By Stratsrule123

from Herndon, VA

Comments about Fender Vintage Noiseless Strat Pickup Set:

I bought a squire strat and soon figuerd out that the pickups in it were worthless so I bought these lifesavers and popped them in and bam, the guitar played great. I would reccomend these pickups to anyone who wants clean razor sharp tone at a low price. the only bad thing about the pickups are that the instructions are not very good and diffucult to understand.

My new favorite Pickups!

By Josh

from Waconia, MN

Comments about Fender Vintage Noiseless Strat Pickup Set:

I recently bought these and put them in my Standard Stratocaster, all I can say is WOW! no more noise. I play through a Fender Champion 600 Reissue and this sounds amazing, they have slightly more gaint han my stock pickups and no more noise. They do lose some of the single coil chime that you heard a lot from SRV, so for Texas Blues I wouldnt use them, but for that Eric Clapton and Jeff Beck sound they are perfect. I even use them to play some Progressive Hard Rock like Rush, they can handle Distortion well. My only complaint lies with the Directions, Im good with electronics, but someone who isn't might get confused as it does not tell you to ground to the tremolo claw and body cavity from the volume pot. They also dont tell you where to put the .01cap and the resistor (btw, it goes on the center and left lugs of the volume pot, if you need to see go look at the data sheets of the American Deluxe Strat)

Great Tone like having a new instrument

By Ernest Crowder

from Fredericksburg,VA

Comments about Fender Vintage Noiseless Strat Pickup Set:

I bought these pickups to replace the ones in my squire affinity strat. They are a huge inprovement over my original pickups. They sound really great they really added tone and fullness to ny instrument, they were not too difficult to install, not many directions just a a wiring diagram it would have been nice to have a little more details about the wiring. I made it through O.K. These pickups do have a hum on my instrument I do not know if it is something I did during installing them or not, Maybe it is my instrument but they seem to picking up static from off of my pickguard. I am going to try and shield my pickguard. But overall I am pleased with these pickups they were a great improvement in my instrument it is like I have a whole new guitar. I would recomend these pickups for there great tone, the controls pots are a great added bonus with this set.

Fit Problem

By Bill

from Green Valley, CA

Comments about Fender Vintage Noiseless Strat Pickup Set:

I received the Fender Vintage Noiseless P/U set and started to install them on the new Strat pickguard I purchased. I noticed right away one p/u was wired with a black/yellow pair of wires vs. the other two with black/white wires. The diagram sent with the p/u set doesn't point out where the black/yellow wired p/u goes. I went to the Fender website and looked up the wiring diagram for the American Standard Strat. (it uses the same p/u's) This diagram is in color and shows the black/yellow wired p/u is the bridge p/u. I also noticed that the p/u wires on all three p/u's are the same length. This means which ever p/u you put in the neck position is too far from the switch for the wires to reach. The bridge p/u needs its white wire to be about two inches longer to get routed properly and reach the switch. I spoke to Fender Customer Relations and the set is being sent back.

BAD BUY

By Roman

from Alameda, CA

Comments about Fender Vintage Noiseless Strat Pickup Set:

These pickups sound terrible. Its like taking a standard Strat, and turning the tone knob all the way down. THERE'S NO TONE IN THESE PICKUPS!!!!!!!!!! That's basically all there is to it. Yeah, they may get rid of the hum but at what a price. All you have to do to get rid of the hum is put your hands on your instrument. Its not like you're going to be playing with your hands off it. If you want a Fender sound DO NOT BUY THESE. If you want a Gibson sound DO NOT BUY THESE. If you want a Fender trying to sound like a Gibson BUY THESE.

Storm Monday Blues

By R Gomez

from San Antonio, TX

Comments about Fender Vintage Noiseless Strat Pickup Set:

After some painstaking research and being a big fan of Clapton, I went with the Vintage Noiseless over Lace Sensor Golds. IMO, the Golds sound some what artificial. I swapped these with some recently added TX specials on an almost new Amer. Standard Strat w/maple neck. I believe TX specials sound better on a rosewood neck (another project). The 1st issue; I realized that the wiring diagram that came with my set is NOT accurate. There were 2 capacitors/resistors that came in the box, that were not in the diagram. Luckily I was able to find a diagram that included them via google images which remedied that. Second; I did NOT use the (2) 1 MEG, and 500k volume pot that came in the package, but rather opted for the 250k pots (all 3) that were already in my Strat (highly recommend by many others) And the yellow wire is for the bridge p/u (also not noted in the diagram). VERDICT: absolutely amazing; crystal clear bell tone, silky highs, punchy mids, and warm lows. And hum canceling is an understatement! After using TX specials for so many years, the lack of hum is almost creepy, but well appreciated. Overall, the tone is warm, silky, and lucid, with a pinch of twang. Note articulation and separation is outstanding �ۡ����your unique attack will flourish beyond what stock pickups can offer. Paired with a TS9, they really came alive! Slow dirty blues, rock/blues, and classic rock tone possibilities suddenly become very obvious, all with a nano bite of hum. The bridge pickup is a bit lacking and thin, however a bridge plate should provide for a wider/fatter sound. The covers are aged white with gold lettering which adds a hit of its own vintage flavor. If you want �ۡ��̏white�ۡ�ݕ�_ covers, I believe you will have to buy the ones that are sold individually. Installation time was about an hour, including the online searching. Little soldering skills needed. All in all; I am very satisfied with the product (not so much with Fender) and highly recommend them for anyone seriously looking for a noiseless vintage tone and/or their own �ۡ��̏woman tone.�ۡ�ݕ�_

Vintage Power

By The Trev2

from Marshall, Minnesota

Comments about Fender Vintage Noiseless Strat Pickup Set:

To begin your experience with pro caliber vintage pickups have them professionally installed. They come with propper pots, wiring, and a little bag of screws and washers that discouraged me from attempting to install them. Once installed they are disgustingly sweet. One can tell right away that it brings warmth, presence, overtones when you want them, and best of all no noise. One other thing that I did notice was that it might of lost a little bass, but one can make adjustments on the amp or mixer. If your looking for something that will compliment your tube amp these are for you.
