Comments about Fender Super 55 Split Coil Stratocaster Pickup Set:

I bought only the bridge pickup for my Fender MIM Stratocaster at first, and liked it so much that I bought the middle and neck pickups also. A word of caution: there's a flat steel bar on top of each coil which makes contact with all three pole pieces on that coil. The bridge pickup cover was held on securely and had no problems, but the middle and neck covers were loose and at least one of the steel bars on each pickup wasn't making contact with all 3 poles, causing the pickup to not work. I finally figured this out when I noticed that pressing down on the pickup cover would make the pickup work for a few seconds. I took them apart and found those steel bars and was able to install them correctly and the pickups have been fine since then.

The tone is really good - it sounds like an AlNiCo 5 Strat pickup, but there's a darker, slightly compressed humbucker sound there as well. They don't seem as "airy" or "glassy" as vintage-style single coils.

All-in-all I'm happy with these pickups. They need to work on making the covers fit a little better, but they are a giant step closer to a noiseless true single-coil sound than the Vintage Noiseless pickups. I use mainly Marshall amps and like a decent amount of gain, and these pickups can handle that well. The tone can be a little dark, so I installed a TBX tone circuit on the bridge & middle pickup which helped the highs somewhat.

If you're a dynamic player who likes to control the tone and volume with your hands and don't mind sacrificing a little of the top-end signal for noiseless operation, these might be the pickups you've been looking for.
