    Pickup-Shootout (Fender CS 69, Fender CS Fat 50s, Kloppmann ST60)

    Hello Strat-Lovers,

    no talking, just playing the five positions with a clean tone.

    Enjoy!

    Best regards
    Martin

    Honestly, they all sound pretty good to my ears. If I had to pick a "best sounding" set I think I would go with the Fat 50s, as they seem to have a little bit more high end to them. Just a little more snap

    I've always thought the Fat '50s were an underrated set. They sound beautiful played through a JBL-equipped Vibroverb -- robust, articulate, and crisp.

    I fell in love with Fat 50s the very day I played my American Standard strat for the first time.

    Thanxs for listening!

    And yeah, the Fat 50s was my choice too!

    I put a set of CS69s in my MIM strat. Well, actually TeleBob did it for me. An incredible job he did, too! In his words, that guitar was the "Stratiest Strat" he'd ever played.

    Long live JBL's! Now plus 4 matched 10's from some guys quad.

    I like the Fat 50's buy the way, wonder if that's what is in my Strat..

    Nope, says Master Design Single Coil whatever that is.

    I hope you got a Dual Showman, a Vibroverb, and two Pro Reverbs because that's where those beauties belong!

    Had a Dual Showman before I got married and that's why I got so into these speakers.

    I know some peeps hate them, but I absolutely love the suckers.

    I am going to "Duane" them into some Marshall cabs.

    Gonna try one in my Theile.

    Got a tweed 57 Pro that wants a try.

    Then I'll build a monster for the rest.

    D130F's sound pretty good when mated to a Princeton or Deluxe Reverb as well......
