Product Description

For those of us who aren’t able to own a late ‘60s Stratocaster, installing a set of our Psychedelic Strat pickups will get you pretty close.

Using traditional materials and period accurate wind, these pickups have high highs, low lows, and a lot of space in between so that the mids have a scooped sound. This EQ profile will add depth and fullness to your tone.

DC Resistance: 5.9k, 5.85k, 5.95k

Application: Strat single coil route




We are passionate about quality so we ask for your patience while we craft your pickup. Depending on the nature of your order, it may take up to 6-8 weeks for delivery.

  1. They DO make things like they used to!! 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th May 2019

    I've owned a 63' and 64' Stratocaster with original pickups. Seymour Duncan's antiquity psychedelic Strat pickups are as close as you're gonna get without breaking the bank. These pickups are smoky, clear, and give back what the player puts in. SD makes a lot of products, but the brand is as tried and true like Fender, Gibson, etc. etc.

  2. The pickups have superior clarity across the notes of all 6 strings 5 Star Review

    The first thing I noticed is that the pole pieces of the bridge had been reversed. Gimmic or not who cares. I have a shit ton of guitars and Hot Rod everything. I will tell you the bridge is thin and lacks balls BUT and I say that with a punch, you put any kind of overdrive or compressor to boost your front end and you have got the most awesome tone in any position with these pickups. They are frigging Great>! Expensive yes but they rock. They roll down sparkling clean. Absolutely use Dimarzio custom taper pots and recommend a push pull tone to turn on your bridge in any position. Sounds great with the neck and bridge. MJ not only are you the goddess of tone, you are one of the sweetest human beings I know. Thank you Seymour Duncan. Home frigging run people. Get them>!

    There are many ways of describing tone, and pick-ups, bold, raw, tight airy, and on. I will try and stay away from using these words, since all of them are subjective. What I cab say about the Psychedelic strat set is WOW. They truly are a work of sonic art. Maybe not for everyone but if you love the sound of the late 1960s early 70s this set nails it. I bought these after I installed the Hendrix set in a strat wondering how much better I could get another strat to sound, They made a great sounding strat sound phenomenal. The staff at Seymour Duncan answered all my question and were very helpful in my decision. This is the first Custom Pick up set I have bought from Seymour Duncan and will not be the last, worth the wait and the money. The quality and sound is worth every penny and then more. I was approached by a regular at a show I just did, and the question “ What did you do to make your guitar sound so great?” says it all.

    Very nice bridge and middle. Neck is so dark, I brought the guitar back to the installer to check installation. Next time, i'd go for their less expensive set.

  6. Creamy Tone Sweetness / Classic Rock Tones - On Demand 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Sep 2016

    My Guitar Tech installed these in my right-handed Hendrix Strat - We ordered a left-handed set with the middle pickup RW/RP. The results . . .

    They have creamy tone be it Slowhand Clapton, Jimi Hendirx Manic Depression vibe or even Terry Kath 25 or 6 to 4 and clean bell like tone when you turn down the volume . . . true sweetness or heavy classic rock tones!!!
