Gearank High Notes

Gearank Recommended

The Fender Tex-Mex Strat Set first appeared on our recommended list for Budget Guitar Pickups in 2 consecutive editions from November 2017 until November 2020 when it was out-ranked by the Fender Original ’57/’62 Strat Pickup Set.

Then in October 2022 it had strong enough ratings to go back on the list where it remains today.

Fender’s Tex-Mex Strat Electric Guitar Pickup set is a three-pickup set of moderate output pickups with a modern voicing.

When companies throw around the term “moderate” voicing they’re talking about pickups that straddle the line between great clean tones and medium amounts of grit, so think a solid blues and garage rock tone.

They aren’t going to give you the best metal or hard rock tone, but they are still really versatile overall.
