High Output – Strat

Rated 5.00 out of 5 based on 2 customer ratings
(2 customer reviews)


Fralin High Output Strat Replacements: a stronger single coil tone. It has 10% more wire than the Vintage Hot set. If you’re combining Single Coils and Humbuckers, this is your set: it’s strong enough to play nicely with Humbuckers. This set is darker and thicker than our Blues Special Strat  pickups, and will give you more crunch. They are also great to help balance out an overly bright guitar.




High Output Single Coil Pickups are for players that use the Hum-Single-Single or Hum-Single-Hum variation on their guitars. Our High Output Pickups are thick, strong, and dark. If you have a bright sounding guitar, you will love the sound of High Output Single Coil pickups. High Output Pickups are perfect for any musician trying to balance the tonal aspects and the output of a humbucker with their single coils. High Outputs are wound with 5% more coil than Blues Specials, which means 5% more output than our Blues Special pickups. 5% more coil also means more mid-range and less treble than our Blues Special Pickups.


  • Thick, full sound with low-end growl and warm treble strings
  • Our Stock set features a 5% overwound bridge
  • Perfect for combining with Humbuckers
  • USA-Made parts
  • High Output Strat Pickups come in your choice of WhiteBlackYellow (Aged White), or Green covers.


When playing clean, High Output Pickups sound very thick and dark, simply because of the increased mids and lows, and less highs.  Additionally, High Output Single Coils have a nice compressed, beefy sound. With distortion, the tone remains thick and fat while being slightly compressed and thick with a low-end growl and a medium attack. You can expect 10% less highs and 10% more mids and power than a vintage-sounding pickup. The High Output Strat Replacements will give you a lot more power than most pickups and will break up a lot quicker than lower output replacements. Chords will sound crunchy and thick, and single notes will sound fat and rich, especially on the plain strings.



  1. What Magnet Stagger Do I Use? This all depends on your fingerboard radius. If you have a 7.25? – 10? Radius, we recommend going with Stock Stagger. If you have a flatter or compound radius, go with Hybrid stagger.
  2. What’s the difference between High Outputs and Steel Pole 42s? High Outputs will sound more like a normal strat pickup on 500K pots. They might be too dark on 250K pots. Steel Pole pickups have a slightly stiffer treble than the High Outputs. The High Outputs will breathe a little more because of the Alnico.
  3. How far away do the strings does the pickup need to be? Push your Low E String down at the highest fret. Measure from the top of the pole piece to the bottom of the string. Ideal starting location should be 1/8? on the bass string, and 1/16? on the treble string, when the High E string is pushed down at highest fret.

    This is the pickup I’ve been looking for years . A single coil that’s open and narley but not bell like and “polite” . Meaty and thick this pickup is for rock soloing and chunk chord work on the bridge . Tight lows and piercing midrange. The neck position I can’t put into words. Slow and wide clipping through any amp as the higher output overloads the power section and seems to make it work at optimum. Never wooly or loose it stays tight and deep on the lowest strings.If extra highs are needed , they are easily dialed in.I have a Suhr strat with the whole pickguard loaded . It is a super strat, no joke . If you play nice music don’t buy this pickup.

    Just what I needed! Third time was a charm, for my project strat. Tried two other pickup sets for this guitar. Always too bright and not enough output! Finally dialed in, it keeps up with my les Paul and my tele w/ lil 59. No dropoff when I switch guitars! Nice warm tone and a playable bridge pickup! Love these pickups!!!!
