Fender Hot Noiseless Set

Replacing stock pickups on Squier Bulletstrat
Anonymous 24.10.2016
The pickups sound great which is the most important thing here, I think. I've replaced the stock pickups on my Squier and they sound very good and have a really high output!

One thing I'm not so satisfied with is that one of the caps didn't fit the pickup so well. The screw holes weren't aligned well so I had to bend the plastic cap to fit the screw through both holes. And that was only on one pickup. I guess that's manufacture "bug". But I don't get so bummed about it. I managed to fit everything so I don't care, but I expected a bit more since it's not so cheap. And one of the "titles" that says noiseless on the pickups almost completely washed out. So if you care about those things keep in mind it can wash out.

The diagram is a bit too straight forward I think. Everything is clear, and I assume that is how a diagram is suppose to look, but I think a small explanation or tips on how to install the pickups could be there.

Also, there is a bit of noise on really high gain but it's totally negligible, and also it may be due to shielding, well, not having shielding (one thing I am planing on doing) in the body cavity.

All in all, since I mostly care about the sound, this is a great product!

Different but worth it

I bought these for a Thomann Ltd. Ed. Strat I bought here in 2014 that came with Tex-Mexes, which I didn't really care for, but the guitar has a great neck and fretboard, professionally setup, and I figured better new pups than to sell the guitar. I am glad I chose this path.
First, a Strat without the hum is a little strange, takes a little getting used to, lol.
Second, I don't find the pups as 'quacky' as normal Fender single coils.

Installation was straightforward.

The tone is...precise, clear, excellent dynamic responsiveness, and once you play with them long enough not to get weirded out by no hum, you understand their versatility and the tonal bliss. Makes this guitar sound a lot more than a €499 guitar!
This was an excellent investment. My Strat will be spending a lot less time under the bed.
I play blues/progressive style rock, and these are magic!

All great, except for the cut
e-Leo 09.07.2022
I used these as a replacement for the original true single coils in my Schecter Nick Johnston strat (of which the bridge sounded great and cut really well, but the middle and neck I found a bit lackluster, and all hummed). The change was immediately audible and my bandmates totally praised the new sound for being not only hum free, but much more solid and just overall "higher quality". In a way, I agree so, and I definitely like the neck position much better. I have to say, though, that I feel I lost a little bit of the "cut through the mix" quality of my previous bridge pickup and I find myself using boosters more to come "up and above" during solos and lead parts than I had to before ... which is kinda strange and definitely not what I expected from the pickups they put in the Jeff Beck signature strat (although it's well known that Beck doesn't like or play it at all:)). I had them installed with the default 250 K pots and I have been thinking about trying a 500 K volume or bridge-dedicated tone pot, but I'm not really sure that's the thing and I am still wondering whether putting something like a Dimarzio Virtual Solo or similar in the bridge position wouldn't be a better way to go. So, as far as I am concerned, great pickups in most ways, but not necessarily what I would recommend to a lead guitarist in a two-guitar extra-loud rock band like mine.
