1980s Fender USA X-1 JV Stratocaster pickup – Repair


A rare early ’80s Fender USA X-1 Strat middle pickup from an early JV strat so it has a yellow white cover with beveled screws.  These pickups were left over from the last of the 3 bolt Strats and often appear in very early JVs in the bridge and also sometimes in all 3 positions.  These pickups are also found in late ’70s 3 bolt Strat and Fender Lead I and Lead II.   That’s the original yellow Fender JV cover with part number under lid with original springs and beveled USA spec screws.


  • Original windings 7.3k measured when cold wound with 42 AWG poly wire
  • Flat non staggered alnico 5 magnets
  • Clockwise wound south up magnets (Standard Fender)
