The Super Distortion ® (and its original 3-conductor version, the Dual Sound ®) was the first pickup specifically designed to kick a tube amp into total overdrive, and is still the standard by which all other high-output pickups are measured. The Super Distortion ® has a perfect blend of power and tone: both single-notes and chords jump out of the amp and fill the room (or the track) with a wall of sound.
Fender's R&D engineers worked closely with world renowned guitarist and tone connoisseur Eric Johnson to craft the perfect pickups for his uniquely articulate sound. Carefully blending Leo's legacy with EJ's modern discerning sonic tastes, these Strat™ pickups are a key element of EJ's unmistakably pure tone.
These overwound vintage style Strat pickups offer increased output, sparkling highs and a very nice warm tone while retaining your favorite vintage Strat characteristics. Constructed with Alnico 5 magnets and polysol magnet wire and featuring a reverse wound/reverse polarity middle pickup for hum canceling in positions 2 & 4, these pickups scorch.
Comments about Lace Sensor Blue-Silver-Red 3-Pack S-S-S Pickup Set: These pickups are absolutely awesome. I upgraded my 2009 American Standard strat with them from the standard Alnico 5 pickups. Obviously, these are extremely well priced. They'd be an absolute steal even if they weren't amazing. But they -are- amazing.
PRS DRAGON 1 Humbucker Set Old pickups that are no longer made…the PRS Dragon 1 are pretty much unobtainable at a “reasonable” used price. Chance had it, i had a set passed through my workbench, going into its original guitar, a 90’s PRS Custom 22, replacing an aftermarket PRS 57/08 set.
The Pearly Gates bridge captures all the mojo of the original bridge pickup from Billy Gibbons’ 1959 Les Paul. Seymour discovered the pickup had slightly more output than most P.A.F.s, which helped to give it the extra drive that makes this pickup so special.
The Little 59 bridge model is a single coil sized humbucker that will inject the sound of a Les Paul directly into your Stratocaster. Its medium output and scooped mids will really add depth to your bridge position. The 4-conductor lead wire gives you access to parallel and split wiring options for added versatility.

There's simply no denying it - the Stratocaster guitar and the single coil pickup are a match made in heaven. Since it was first introduced in 1954, the Fender Strat has become the favored axe of countless slingers who want a tone that's bright and cutting - which of course, is what single-coil pickups do best.
