The Ultra series noiseless pickups are some of Fender's best yet. Fender have avoided the common pitfalls of noiseless pickups, and have created a set of three Stratocaster single-coils that eliminate hum without losing that Strat sound. This set of Strat pickups has that classic low-output, vintage Strat tone.
These pickups use a stacked single-coil design but unlike many stacked single-coils, which take on humbucker-like qualities, Fender have voiced the Ultra series pickups to have a lively and articulate sound with a vintage voice. You still get that classic Strat sound, but with the elimination of 60 cycle hum they become more usable at higher gain levels.
