These pickups have a mid-range output and smooth vintage sound.
Jack Agopian
I just wanted to say that the Fender Vintage Noiseless Pickups were a great upgrade to my 2012 Fender Standard Stratocaster.
Psymon JC
This guitar now sounds great, an immediate and noticeable improvement over the original muddy sounding pickups.

I purchased these pickups to see if I could upgrade my old Squire Strat rather than dropping money on a new higher end guitar. In the end, I achieved a fantastic result. It just took a while to get it right.
The first set I received had a bad middle pickup. Unfortunately, I did not discover this until I had completely reassembled my guitar and tried to play it. I should have checked them before installation, but it didn't occur to me they might be bad. To their credit, Amazon quickly sent me another set and these pickups checked out fine at 10k ohms. But I had to de-solder the first set to send it back which was twice as much work as the original installation.
Also, as mentioned in other posts, the diagram provided with this pickup set is wrong. It doesn't show the correct location of the caps and resistor, and shows all 1 meg pots, whereas the volume pot is 500k. If you buy these, go to the Fender website and download the wiring diagram for the American Deluxe Stratocaster. Install per this diagram except put the 500 k pot in the volume position. It took a couple hours of research on the web to figure this out. My thanks goes out to the other guitarists who posted this information. I can't believe Fender lets these out with the wrong diagram.
In the end these pickups dropped right into my Squire pickguard, I had to enlarge the pot holes slightly for the new ones to fit. I also got a new vintage style 5 way switch which matches the wiring diagrams. The original Squire switch is a little different. The Squire volume and tone knobs seem a little tight on the new pots and I didn't want to force them on so I have ordered new cream colored knobs to match the pickups.
This guitar now sounds great, an immediate and noticeable improvement over the original muddy sounding pickups.

Been playing Strats for 50 years and had lots of the great ones. When I tell you that through my amps these pickups have super hot bell tones without getting "glassy" and "ice picky" I mean they sound better than any Strat I have ever heard in my life.

I have three very hum and noise suscecptible amps that all run tubes. A MESA Boogie Mark I 60/100 with JBL 130s and JBL 140s in extension cabinets. A tube Vox AC30 Top Boost with Blue Alnico speakers. And an extremely noisy Fender Pro Jr. running Blue Alnico Jensen 10" for that Fender Bassman sound on steroids.

The point is that it is now possible for me to turn these three high gain noisy amps up to 10 on all their controls and get not one bit of hum or noise (except for tube rush-which is in the amp and not very noticable). This is unbelievable! At that volume I can knock down doors and shatter windows, haha. I guess now I will have to pay attention to what volume I dial in before the drummer hits the downbeat. The guitar won't tell me with a regular blat of 60hz noise and hash! But that's something I can deal with, believe me.

My new noiseless strat is now the quietest guitar in my collection (zero noise...can't get quieter!) and hands down the best sounding one. After 50 years of compromises I am stunned.

By the way Eric Clapton just tossed his Lace Sensors and now runs these on stage. Not that I give a hoot what he thinks. And I still love Lace Sensors on my B-bender Tele because they don't pull on the string magnetically and thus the sustain goes on for weeks... But Clapton is evidence that serious players you have heard of seem to think these strat pickups are the new king. Not just little old me, what do I know, lol? These pups get rid of that last bit of noise the Sensors can't remove AND they have outrageous amounts of "spanky" shimmering traditional tone we Strat guys kill for.

My old Squier Strat Korean edition had been dusty and ignored in a corner of my basement until I desided to buy these pickups. The task was not easy because the instructions from Fender are very poor. You have to do some guess work mostly with the bridge pickup, the knobs, and the five-way switch. When you detach the old pickguard with the electronic, keep it as a reference. If you are upgrading your Squire chances are that you have to make more space for the new pickups in the body of your guitar carving some wood. But after a couple of trial and errors, the money and time spent was worth it. Wow! What a great fender classic sound! Do not hesitate and upgrade your guitar... NOW! As a final note, make sure that you have all the tools you need and you are going to need a new pickguard for sure.

Okay... I bought a 2012 MIM Std Stratocaster and was hyped into changing the more than adequate stocky Pups which are high output but not so "Stratty" sounding into some type of noiseless Pup... I played a few guitars with CS 69's (great but noisy, yes I know they are not noiseless Pups but I wanted to hear other Vintage stuff), SCN Fender Pups (75/100) the lace sensors (Gold = 80/100), the Hot noiseless Fender Pups (brilliant but weird tonally 78/100) and these (95/100 but for some people they may be a challenge hence my 4 star rating)..............

I settled on buying a whole new preloaded pickguard and Fender VN Pup set with nice shielding etc.. $179 off a nice bloke on ebay... [...]

I soldered the new set up in about 10 minutes and presto.. the output in my little practice amp sounded about 1/3rd the volume (absolute) I had with my MIM Std Pups.. I was peeved to say the least..

So, I tinkered with the Pup heights from near the pickguard all the way up to near the strings and then tried the age old method of using the Fender factory settings..... hmmm nothing I liked, so I tinkered with alternate high bass side, low treble side etc etc... eventually after a few hours of messing I have a GREAT SOUND from settings 1,3 and 5... the neck is so SWEET for Hendrix and the bridge for Townshend... I am a little upset with the muted tones in neck/mid and bridge/mid... the sound is attenuated a LOT for some reason (and no it's not the grounding or wiring)..... it is just effing QUIET and very low volume (no problem just do a Deep Purple and crank the volumes all the way to 10 on everything in those 2 and 4 possys)...................
