We have just installed a set of the new Fishman Fluence pickups on a black Mexican strat at the store. The sound great–very bright on the standard setting and beefier when you pull out the back tone knob to get the “Texas” tone from the pickups. Plus the standard noise problem of Strat pickups is just not there with these. Traditional pickups are wire wrapped around a magnetic coil; these are made in a different way that eliminates the “issues” with Strat pickups while preserving the bright single coil sound that people love. Come in and give them a try. Click on the image for more details.
