    Default NEW Loaded Strat Pickguard - Texas Special Pickups

    Here is a brand new (still has the protective plastic on it!) loaded pickguard taken from a 2015 Deluxe Roadhouse Strat, in aged white pearloid. The pickups are a set of Fender Custom Shop Texas Specials. The only change from the original configuration is that the S-1 switch and mid-boost preamp were removed and replaced with the control set (high quality CTS pots!) from an American Standard Strat. With this change, you don't have to worry about your Strat-style body having a 9V battery box....or trying to add one. It's all wired up and ready to go--just connect your output jack leads and the ground wires for the bridge/trem claw and control cavity and you're ready to rock!

    Texas Special pickups are a bit hotter than vintage-style Strat pickups (measured DC resistance values of 7.16K ( B), 6.99K (M), and 6.66K (N) for this set) but still retain that classic Strat clarity & character. The middle pickup is RWRP, for hum cancellation at the 2 & 4 selector switch positions. Perfect pickups for classic rock and blues, especially if you want to get your "inner Stevie Ray" on!

    The Texas Special pickup set for Strats generally sells for $200, but here's your chance to grab a set for less than half of that. And they're already mounted in a great looking pickguard with top-shelf electronic components. Let me emphasize again--these are brand new pickups in a brand new pickguard!

    I have this listed on Reverb.com for $99 + $13.45 shipping, but will offer it here to fellow Fretters for $95 shipped to the CONUS. Will gladly quote additional shipping cost to HI/AK/Canada upon request. Sorry, no shipping outside of US & Canada. PayPal payment only. PM if interested....

    Talk about good timing! Premier Guitar's online edition for July has an article on single coil replacement pickups. And guess what Strat pickup set was at the top of the list? Check it out HERE.

    I'm thinking....ugh, hmmm, maybe, I dunno, well, argh, sheesh, oh, hmmm. I really like these in my Roadhouse Strat and have been considering trying them in my CV 50s Strat. Hmmm.
