    For sale: a set of Oildale strat pickups made by forum member Fezz Parka.
    Fezz Parka pickups were quite popular on music forums about 10 years ago, but are no longer being made. I bought these just before production stopped.

    All three measure about 5.9k, and are made with A3 magnets (no stagger).
    Metal baseplate on the bridge pickup.


    Typical of all Fezz Parka pickups, they are only briefly dipped in lacquer (instead of a full wax potting) which is just enough to prevent squeal when the volume is turned up, but still allows a lot of ‘liveliness’. Please bear in mind that a high gain amp might not be suitable, as the slight microphonics might be too much and lead to feedback.


    Yours for 150$ (free shipping).

    Those were the Telecaster pickups. Oildale is next to Bakersfield. :)

    (Edit: the bridge pickup doesn't currently have a baseplate, but it can be given separately on request).

    Is the middle PU reverse wound? (hum cancelling when combined with the neck or bridge PUs)

    No. And ..if someone requested it, I'd tell them to buy SD pickups.

    Yes...I was The Pickup Notsee. No soup for you. :)

    As pointed out by the maker himself, the middle isn't rwrp.

    However, it's possible to reverse the polarity with some strong neo magnets, and I might be able to do that if you ask nicely :).
