NEW Artec Vintage Style Stratocaster Single Coil Pickups
Fantastic Alnico pickups with an authentic vintage sound
Equally as good as Fender's own American standard pickups, with clear chimey tones and authentic vintage sound.
Featuring 52mm staggered alnico V magnets, fibreboard bobbins and braided hookup wire. Don't let the price of these pickups deceive you into thinking they're not every bit as good as other brands of a higher price.
Magnets: Alnico V
Neck Pickup: 6.3k
Middle Pickup: 6.4k
Bridge Pickup: 6.6k
Middle Pickup RWRP for hum cancelling
Very impressive. Replaced stock pickups in Squire Bullet. Easy installation with modest soldering skills. Pickup positions clearly marked. Solid build and fantastic sonic improvement. Tone much deeper, from cutting treble to rounded low end plus low to no hum. So much better than original pups and to my ears very 'Strat' sounding. Highly recommended.
Excellent replacement set of pickups for my Squier Strat. More powerful and brighter than the originals and a distinct difference in sound between the neck and bridge. For the price, brilliant.
Bought these to replace ceramic pups on an HB ST20. Ceramics were ok but a little too bright for my taste. Artecs are inexpensive but are excellent. I now have all the fender tones and that “bark” you can get from a strat. My luthier friend reckons my HB is now better than fenders own budget models and every bit as good as strats costing 10 times as much. Highly recommended.
First off the delivery was exceptionally fast. I'd ordered a few things, these among them. I'm new to strat style guitars being an LP and acoustic foggy. But comparing these to the pups on two other Strat styles I had been fixing up for pals , well heck! Blown away by the sound. Absolutely fantastic. Each pup has a distinctive voice, neck is warm and smooth , bridge has lovely attack. Stuck them on a nice pink pearloid plate which I'm hoping to transfer into a decent body from Northwest Guitars as the kit I have is sub par. Great buy.
I cant rate these pickups highly enough they sound authentic & are great value for money.
Bought a set to replace the pickups in my old MiM Strat, and I'm bowled over with the sound - they sound tremendous.
These pickups are very good quality for the price.
These replaced the standard pickups in a Fender MIM strat. Overall, it's a definite upgrade! It sounds much more chimey and "strat-like" than the MIM ceramics. The neck and bridge are really lovely, smooth and articulate. The bridge I find a bit shrill, but I've heard this can be the case with lots of vintage style strat pickups.
Great value set of strat pickups, received them quickly after ordering, no probs installing and great tone and sound from each individually and in combination.
