The Fender Original '57/'62 appeared on our recommended list for Budget Guitar Pickup Sets Under $150 in 3 consecutive editions from December 2019 until October 2022 when it was removed due a price increase that made it ineligible for the list.
These pickups from Fender are based on ones from a 1963 Stratocaster, giving you genuine vintage tone by replicating period correct specifications from its vintage bobbin construction all the way to genuine original-era cloth wiring.
Each pickup is voiced to reproduce the clarity and expressiveness that are expected from a vintage Stratocaster, with Alnico 5 magnets at its core, along with hand-beveled pole pieces.
Many higher end fenders, including some custom-shop models, have this set factory installed.
- Position: All (Single-Coil Set)
