Fender Vintage Noiseless Pickups

The Fender Vintage Noiseless Single Coil Pickups are a versatile set of bright, crisp and warm sounding pickups which deliver a balanced and smooth tone in a range of pickup positions. Utilizing Alnico 2 magnets the Vintage Noiseless pickups provide fantastic clarity and definition whilst the complex harmonics add a unique flavour to the tone. Based on vintage single coil pickups the Noiseless single coils feature innovative, modern craftsmanship which allows them to deliver a fantastic vintage style single coil tone but without the unwanted hum often associated with vintage single coils.

TBX Tone Control & Mid Boost

Featuring a unique TBX Tone Control the Fender Eric Clapton Stratocaster has the ability to shape and mould its tone like never before. The stacked 250k potentiometer runs without the aid of a battery and allows you to boost bass, treble presence and even output. To do this you simply turn the tone control past the 5 marker to start reducing resistance thus adjusting and enhancing the tone.

Additionally the active mid boost circuit can be used to enhance the middle frequencies being output by the guitar by to up to +25dB. Perfect for both clean and distortion tones the mid boost adjusts from 0dB neutral mode right to +25dB which can be used to create some fantastic and unique sounds when combined with the TBX tone control.
