      This pup is quieter than the out-of-phase positions on my Stratocaster. While providing great Strat tone on the neck!

        Comments about Fender Vintage Noiseless Strat Neck/Middle Pickup:

        My biggest complaint was that it did not mention what color the pickup was. The picture shows a white pickup. I received an aged white pickup. Luckly I was replacing one that died, so I was able to swap the covers to have it match the rest of my pickups.

        I think these sound really good for their price range. There are better sounding pickups but they are going to cost you more. I have owned a lot of these pickups over the years and I have had 3 or 4 of these die on me. The pickup wire actually breaks around the wraps and then the sound from that one pickup is cut to about 10% It is cheaper to buy a replacement than a whole new pickup set of something else, so I keep buying new ones.

        Since this was Fenders first attempt at a single coil pickup with no 60 cycle hum, I think they really do sound great. I love the Neck and Middle tones out of my Strats. They sound great clean and they don't get thin or muddy if you crank them through an overdriven amp. Keeping the pickup with 2 wires really keeps it easy to install.

        Excellent pickups

        By Eric-A5VDc

        from New York

        Comments about Fender Vintage Noiseless Strat Neck/Middle Pickup:

        I bought a Strat that was modded with three of these in it. They deliver a gritty distorted tone that I absolutely love, and can switch from a hot bridge position to a more mellow, humbucker like sound in the neck. I definitely would recommend them to anyone looking to hot rod their Strat. HOWEVER, they do not give as good clean tones, in comparison to other single coils.

        SRV tone

        By AlakdaN

        from Arizona

        Comments about Fender Vintage Noiseless Strat Neck/Middle Pickup:

        I just put a d tuna on my guitar and now I put this noiseless fender pickup (neck). My strat MIM guitar just transformed into a SRV tone guitar. No effects, just straight to a marshall amps WITH distortion. Believe me replaced those MIM pickups you have from that cheap fender strat and you will not regret it.

        Awesome

        By stoli1000

        from Oxnard, CA

        Comments about Fender Vintage Noiseless Strat Neck/Middle Pickup:

        I wanted to find a more vintage strat sound for my mid position on my strat. I used a clapton strat equipped with these at guitar center and WOW, I am definately buying one for my mid postion. These babies sing. They have that classic strat tone, but with a much more full bass and mid. The tone is clear and bell like, but not piercing like some older or stock strat pickups. Very balanced, very beautiful. I personally prefer a hotter Bridge pickup and a more full, P.A.F/ jazzy-bluesy type sounding neck pickup, but if you're looking for that classic tone all the way around, then go for it. These PUPs sound great in any position.

        Great Pickup.

        By Telepicker20

        from Minnesota

        Comments about Fender Vintage Noiseless Strat Neck/Middle Pickup:

        I had this pickup installed on my Deluxe Nashville Tele (in the center), along with the Seymour Duncan STK-T3 and STK-T1. It is exactly as described; classic fender tone without the noise. I was very skeptical about these at first but now I am a believer. Keep in mind that the Seymour Duncan's are a 4-wire pickup and standard Fender's are 2 so you may have to reconfigure some things if you mix Seymour's with Fender's. You can hear a very slight hum if you crank all the way up and it is totaly silent where you are, but hardly anything to even mention. I highly reccomend these for all vintage and modern guitars. Way better tone than most stock pickups I've used, plus they're noiseless. A winner any way you look at it. Well worth the money. I also like that it comes tinted to look vintage (not bright white like the photo).

        Comments about Fender Vintage Noiseless Strat Neck/Middle Pickup:

        Great clean fender tone with no hum at all! If you're looking to hear your guitar clearly, these pickups are it. All of them are awesome. I gave a 9 overall, for future creativity.

        Does what it says

        By Stratozyck

        from Alabama

        Comments about Fender Vintage Noiseless Strat Neck/Middle Pickup:

        I ordered off of here and it arrived three days later. Very satisfied with this website, but Fender needs to have an instruction booklet with its pickups. The diagram that it came with was barely understandable. It looked like instructions were an afterthought and someone just scribbled a diagram on a piece of paper and put it in. That being said, after I installed it in my neck position, it did exactly what it promised. It sounded like a slightly better pickup than stock as far as tone goes, but most importantly, NO NOISE. When I get the money I will definitely order another one for my middle position.
