Squier Guitar Pickups

Squier is a guitar company that was founded in 1890. They were purchased by Fender in 1965 and offer such Fender models as the Stratocaster and Telecaster. Squier guitar pickups, also known as transducers, act as a microphone for your guitar to amplify the sound.

What kind of pickups does Squier use?

The company has used a wide array of types over the years. It depends on the specific guitar model. They make a variety of single coil and humbucking pickups. Most of their guitars have alnico magnets, but Squier uses ceramic as well. Some models even have active pickups. This is a type that uses a 9-volt battery to power an active preamp. This is done to boost the signal, often to provide more gain with less hum and background noise.

Are Fender and Squier pickups interchangeable?

Fender and Squier are both part of the same company. Both manufacturers make Strats, Teles, and other Fender-style guitars. All of their pickups can be swapped back and forth between brand names. Guitars of either type tend to use very similar pickups.

What's the difference between a humbucker and a single coil?

A single coil is made with wire that is wrapped around a magnet. This creates a magnetic field. When your guitar strings vibrate, the magnetic field detects this and converts the vibrations into an electric signal. At really high volumes, a single coil may emit a hum. Humbuckers are basically two single coils together, in either series or parallel, that get rid of this hum.

Are they sold in sets or individually?

You can purchase single pickups or sets made for a specific guitar. Buying each separately allows you to customize the tone of your guitar to your specific playing style and needs. Buying a pair or a full set can save you time and hassle if you need to replace all of them. You can also purchase a pickguard that contains them along with all of the wiring and electronics already installed.

What kind do I need for a Squier Strat?

Squier Strats come in a variety of configurations. The standard setup is to have three single coil models. Some have a single coil at the neck and middle position with a humbucking model at the bridge. A number of models, such as the Jim Root Strats and Contemporary Series, have two humbucking pickups. One is positioned at the neck, and the other is located at the bridge.
