Fender is synonymous with the single coil, and known for the occasional humbucker, but P-90s are comparatively rare in its designs. That changes in 2021 with the launch of the new Noventa Series, which equips iconic outlines with new single coils akin to the classic ‘middle-ground’ pickup.

The Noventa Telecaster, Stratocaster and Jazzmaster all feature Fender's new Noventa single-coil design – the company is promising “midrange bite, crisp highs and warm, smooth lows” and a wide dynamic range from the new format – of which you’ll find one in the Telecaster, two in the Strat, and three in the Jazzmaster.
