Are Seymour Duncan and Fender single coil pickups compatible?

Posted on by sltwtr

Yes they can be but Seymour Duncan and Fender pickups are magnetically opposite. Many players find that after installing a Seymour Duncan bridge single coil into a Strat they must switch the Fender mid and neck position pick ups both in the pick guard and in the wiring at the switch to keep the #2 and #4 positions noise canceling. There are exceptions to this rule though because Fender has changed their magnetic orientation several times in the last four decades If you plan on mixing Seymour Duncan and Fender pickups it’s recommended you read this article first.
