Stratocaster Pickups (Single Coil)
There's simply no denying it - the Stratocaster guitar and the single coil pickup are a match made in heaven. Since it was first introduced in 1954, the Fender Strat has become the favored axe of countless slingers who want a tone that's bright and cutting - which of course, is what single-coil pickups do best. From rhythm and blues to country and rock, there's a single coil pickup to match every musical genre in this section. In fact, names like EMG, Seymour Duncan and DiMarzio are respected around the globe for their single coil Stratocaster pickups, and they can all be found here along with many others.
To get a better idea of which single coil pickups will suit your tastes best, you should definitely consider spending some time in this selection to look at each option more closely. With that in mind, you can easily imagine what the Fender Customer Shop '54 Strat Pickup Set Of 3 sounds like based on its title alone. Featuring staggered, hand-beveled Alnico 5 magnets and Forvar magnet wire wound to deliver clear harmonics and a classic tone, these pickups are unmistakably vintage in every way.
Or, if you're after a sound that adds a bit more midrange and increased sustain, go with the EMG EMG-SA Alnico Single Coil Active Pickup. Delivering killer overdrive while still retaining the high-end output that a single-coil pickup is known for, this pickup is incredibly versatile. It also just happens to be the pickup-of-choice amongst many iconic guitarists like David Gilmour of Pink Floyd and Steve Lukather of Toto.
And these are just two of many top-selling pickups that make up this catalog. While you're at it, be sure to check out other sets of three like the Fender Tex Mex Pickups and the Seymour Duncan California 50's Single Coil Set SSL-1.
