The Seymour Duncan 2011 Limited Everything Axe Prewired Strat Pickguard with Liberator includes a matched set of pickups”SJBJ-1, SDBR-1, and SL59-1”that produces an amazing variety of tones. All 3 pickups are true humbuckers. Comes with the Liberator, the first universal solderless pickup change system. Change your pickups with just a screwdriver, using the bare-wire Lockdown system.
JB Jr.„¢ SJBJ-1
High output single-coil-size "rails" humbucker. Great for everything from heavy blues to heavy metal. This twin coil design pickup gives you the character of our popular JB„¢ model humbucker in a single-coil size. Its adjustable pole pieces more closely emulate the magnetic field of a full size humbucker and allow you to fine tune the balance of your strings. You can expect great harmonics and a sweet high-end. Compared to Hot Rails, the output is reduced and there's more treble response. Comes with four-conductor hookup cable.
Vintage output single-coil-sized humbucker. Excellent for country, pop, surf, rockabilly, blues, ska and classic rock. Using a design and a voicing based on Vintage Rails„¢, Duckbuckers incorporate six fully adjustable pole pieces together with a unique, split blade design. You get all the warm tone, cool output, and outrageous "quack" of a vintage Strat® pickup, but no hum. Though tonally similar to Vintage Rails, the mini pole piece design behaves more like a traditional pickup when string-bending. Comes with four-conductor cable hookup cable.
Little '59„¢ for Strat SL59-1
P.A.F.-voiced single-coil-sized humbucker. Great for country, jazz, blues, funk, classic rock and heavy rock. This little brute was designed to impart the warm, smooth tone of an old Patent Applied For humbucker in a direct replacement, single-coil size. It possesses an even, dynamic response, and its adjustable pole pieces allow the guitarist to fine tune the string balance and dial in just the right amount of punch. Compared to the JB Jr., it has less output and more upper-mids. Comes with four-conductor hookup cable. USA Patent No. Des. 355,207.(SSL-1) Hot Stack® (STK-S2) pickups, Cool Rails are for players who need a louder, punchier, and fatter single-coil sound. Comes with four-conductor hookup cable.
The solderless pickup change system from Seymour Duncan
The volume potentiometer is the tone junction for your guitar's wiring. Swap it out for Liberator and you'll be able to quickly and easily change pickups for new tone, feel, responsiveness, and output.
Liberator is an integrated quality volume pot and screw-clamp connector that accepts bare or tinned pickup leads for torqued-tight tone better than flimsy spring terminals or less-than-perfect solder connections.

I�ۡ���m a little out of my depth reviewing pickups because I�ۡ���m not that technical. I�ۡ���m just sharing my experience and feelings about my results.  I�ۡ���m mostly a metal guy but I was raised on a steady diet of The Ventures served on Fender JazzMasters & Mustangs. When I bought my USA made Fender Strat 2 years ago I simply wanted to have a classically styled genuine Fender product around even though it�ۡ���s single coil pickups aren't well suited for playing my favorite 80�ۡ���s style metal.  Well�ۡ��_one day last week I got sick of ignoring my nice looking strat and I decided to upgrade the pickups with the Everything Axe set. The no-solder install was super easy. The first problem I had was the pick guard screws were not perfectly aligned. It was close enough to where I felt OK just going ahead and tightening them. The only damage was that it bore into the edges of the screw holes on the pickguard a bit. When I was done it looked cosmetically correct so no worries. I took some extra time to do a setup then I plugged it in.  Instead of just cranking it right away, I used clean settings and went through all 5 selector positions and rotated the pots to hear the differences. Everything seemed to work except for the Neck pickup tone control. I even tried it on all 5 positions with no results. The only thing it seemed to do was crackle a little once it reached the end of its travel CCW. I got a second opinion from my other half and we agreed the tone control was not working as expected. Pickup returns have strict rules but I called Guitar Center back knowing I wanted an exchange, not a refund. They had one more left so I exchanged it the next day.  The replacement install went pretty much the same but this time all the controls worked properly. I was surprised at the lesser output of the center pickup. The first one (with the defective tone control) was also this way so I�ۡ���m confident it�ۡ���s part of the �ۡ��̏vintage output�ۡ�ݕ�_ spec. Any way�ۡ��_ I really like the fact that the output on that pickup is less since it allows me to get some super-clean sparkle when I want shimmering chords. With overdrive I get some very nice definition to my chords in all pickup settings and I can get all the forced/pinched harmonics I want . One odd thing I will mention is that the volume pot shaft is taller then the other two by about a quarter inch. Since the defective one I took back was NOT this way, I have to assume this was unintended. It does not affect how I feel about the upgrade and it�ۡ���s easier to adjust the volume so I�ۡ���m not going to count it as a meaningful fault. All in all, I am very pleased with the pickup set. So much in fact that I have played the Strat more in the last two days than I have in the two years I�ۡ���ve owned it. Now I truly enjoy playing it and it�ۡ���s about dang time.
