Fender custom pickups style – Cesarini Pickup

With Stefano we met through about 2016, it was spring and he was about to prepare for the tour of Patty Pravo, which would take place in Italy in the summer. He showed me his Stratocaster Fender, which did not fully convince him of setup and sound. We made a nice change of keys, change the nut (had a roller nut, which did not seem positioned in the best way) and then we tried our set of C-Shapely single coil pickups.

C-Shapely is a kind of Fender Custom Pickup, that comes with very similar tonal qualities in the three positions. So there is not a bridge too loud or too dark and swollen handle, the sound is always faithful to a certain sound. The compensation of volumes between the various positions is therefore not through a progressive impedance, but through the arrangement of the magnets. The result is a very interesting set – usable in any genre, but that gives the maximum in pop, funky, rock. The coil is made of dielectric bakelite, which makes their look very vintage.

From this our first meeting a collaboration was born. We will also be preparing Stefano Cerisoli for the Masini tour. Here he gave us a small demonstration of the newly assembled pickups.
