Authentic vintage Strat tone and feel with a pre-wired pickguard.

The Pure Vintage '59 pre-wired Strat pickguard lets you easily customize your Stratocaster with authentic vintage tone and feel. Made in the same factory as iconic Fender guitars, this pre-wired pickguard features Pure Vintage '59 single-coil pickups to recreate the legendary Strat sound. The pickups use cloth wiring and alnico V magnets, just like the originals from the '50s. Simply remove your old pickguard, connect the output jack and ground wires, screw in the new pre-wired pickguard and you'll be playing with vintage Fender tone in minutes.

Pure Vintage '59 Pickups Provide Round, Warm Tone

The Pure Vintage '59 pickups produce the smooth, rounded tone that defined the early Stratocaster era. The alnico V magnets and Formvar-coated magnet wire result in sweet, singing tone with just the right amount of edge and bite when you dig in. Every detail, from the fiber bobbins to the cloth wiring, is faithfully recreated for authentic vintage Fender sound. The bridge and neck pickups generate the warm, familiar tones you'd expect, while the reverse-wound middle pickup delivers enhanced quack and bite in positions two and four.

Reverse-Wound Middle Pickup Cancels Hum

The reverse-wound, reverse-polarity middle pickup is a brilliant design that eliminates hum in the two and four switch positions. By reversing the coil windings, the pickup cleverly cancels out any noise and hum, leaving you with nothing but pure Strat tone. It adds back the unmistakable snap and quack that makes a Strat a Strat. No more noise getting in the way of your soloing.

Drop-in Installation Lets You Customize Your Sound

Thanks to the pre-wired design, installing this pickguard takes just minutes. Simply unscrew the old pickguard, detach the output jack and ground wires, then screw in the new '59 pickguard. Solder the two wires and you're ready to experience vintage-accurate Fender tone. It's an easy way to customize your Strat with new pickups and dial in your perfect tone. The black pickguard looks sleek and stylish against any guitar finish.

Cloth Wiring and Alnico Magnets for Vintage Fender Sound

From the Formvar-coated magnet wire to the fiber bobbins and cloth wiring, the Pure Vintage '59 pickups are meticulously crafted to match the original specs. The alnico V magnets contribute to the smooth, rounded tone that made the early Strat so popular. Combined with the black pickguard and vintage-style knobs, you get iconic Fender looks and sound.
