High Output – Strat

Rated 5.00 out of 5 based on 3 customer ratings
(3 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.

High Output Pickups sound very thick and dark when playing clean. The feature a massive midrange and darker and smoother highs. Additionally, High Output Single Coils have a nice compressed, beefy sound. The tone is thick and fat while having a light compression and thick with a low-end growl and a medium attack. Expect 10% less highs and 10% more mids and power than a vintage-sounding pickup. Our High Output Strat Pickups will break up a lot quicker than lower output replacements. Chords sound crunchy and thick, and single notes sound fat and rich.

It all starts here: Our manufacturing process allows us to achieve unparalleled quality control. These High Output Strat Pickups consist of local fiberboard and USA-Made Alnico 5 Magnets. We wind each pickup by hand, one at a time. Each pickup is wound using our proprietary “Sectioning” technique. This gives the pickup a sweet, clear tone. Finally, we wax-pot the pickup to preserve the pickup, and prevent microphonics.




  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 from 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.
  4. Wiring Diagrams? Here!


High Output Strat Pickups are wound with 43-Gauge SPN Wire and use USA-Made Alnico V Magnets. 250K Pots or 500K pots are recommended, depending on what style of music and how bright you want your pickups to be. 

Ohm Readings
High Outputs will read approximately 8K in the Neck and Middle, and 9.7K in the Bridge.

    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!!!!

    The right thing. Just the right thing for soloing. But does work for rhythm.
