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. Each pickup is unique in structure and performance. The
neck pickup is based on a '54 Strat pickup with oversized alnico 3
magnets. The middle pickup, based on a '63 Strat pickup, uses
specially treated alnico magnets and is reverse wound to cancel hum
when used with the neck or bridge pickup. The bridge pickup uses
alnico 5 magnets and is specially voiced to be hotter without
sacrificing that sweet top end sparkle.
