    Vintage noiseless weak?
    I know they're a little lower output than most fender pups but i wouldn't call them weak (play an eric johnson strat ). You're just playing them throught the wrong amp man. i wish you can come over my house and hear my strat with vintage noiseless pickups into my carvin legacy. i'll show you weak . they're no texas specials though.

    they're my favorite strat pickups i think.
    Peace

        Na. It's not the amp. I have great amps. I just don't like them all that much compared to other Fender options. I know what they sound like. I have installed them for a few clients. They don't sound bad to me, just not what I expect out of a Strat.

        it's all just opinions.

          I wish I did, but that was the only song I have recorded with these pickups. I used my Tele for most of the rest of that session.

              Thanks. We went in a did a cover CD last year because we were bored and needed to spend money on something I guess. We did that, a King Crimson song, an Iron Maiden song and an original too

                It would be really nice if I could get that Comfortably Numb tone posted earlier, as well as THIS SWEET ASS TONE.
                That's a big twinkie.

                  this is a take of the Comfortably Numb solo(at least the jist of it) I did with my Texas Specials.

                  just to give you an in the ball park idea of what those would sound like. i'm looking for a little more bite though. they still sound good though. some other stuff recorded with them is there too.

                    The Vintage Noiseless are the crappiest pickups Fender offers IMO. So weak.

                    I really like the Hot noiseless though. They sound closer to the real deal and have that bite.


                    Clapton had the Vintage Noiseless in his signature strat a few years back, i'm not sure if they are anymore, but the Crossroads Guitar Festival guitar he played had them. Crappy pickups in a guitar like that. crazy man. he also had some cranked amps though, so that boosted their output probably.

                    it amazes me though, that the 2 noiseless that Fender puts out completely differ from each other.

                      The best I've heard anyone get close to that tone was with stock MIM pickups, a stock TS-9 reissue, a Fender Deluxe Reverb, and an Electro-Harmonix Deluxe Memory Man. Go figure.


                      Amazing but true.

                        Ita a totally different ballgame with the EC Strat. Adding the mid-boost to the equation totally change's the frequency of the Vintage Noisless in the Clapton Strat. Talking Apple's and Orange's now. The Clapton are ALL equipped with Vintage Noiseless. I thought they sucked till I played then through that rig? I can't get over how good they sound in that guitar. The High Z frequency is changed over to a Low Z frequency in the Clapton. That doesn't happen with the Vinatge Noiseless in any other Strat.
                        Damn Right I got the BLUE'S

                        Ordinary . CAN BE . EXTRAORDINARY.. follow your DREAM!

                          bah! i forgot all about the mid boost he had on his guitars.

                          sorry

                            I don't know, as I haven't tried either, but Dave Gilmour didn't use his Strat on Another Brick, he used a Gibson Les Paul goldtop loaded with P-90s. I recommend the P-90 at the neck - it sounds fantastic!
