New Yosemite Pickups
NEW YOSEMITE PICKUPS

Handcrafted in Corona, California, Yosemite pickups are specifically voiced for each instrument and position to create sonically versatile and musically useful sounds.

Tapered-Shaft Tuning Machines
TAPERED-SHAFT TUNING MACHINES

Featuring vintage-style paddle keys, tapered tuning machines are wider at the top than the bottom, forcing the string windings downward and keeping them tight for increased sustain and enhancing tuning stability.

Medium-Jumbo Frets
MEDIUM-JUMBO FRETS

Medium-jumbo frets make it easier to achieve wide, expressive bends that add your personal touch to your music.

4-Saddle Bridge
4-SADDLE BRIDGE

This model features a four-saddle bridge for solid tuning stability, precise intonation and increased sustain. The string-through-body design enhances string-to-body vibration transfer for added sustain.

Satin-Finished Neck
SATIN-FINISHED NECK

Featuring a “Modern C”-shaped profile that works well with almost any playing style, the neck also hosts a satin finish on the back, giving it a smooth, fast playing feel.

Greasebucket Tone System
GREASEBUCKET TONE SYSTEM

This uniquely Fender tone system lets you cut treble without losing gain or “muddying” your sound, preserving your carefully shaped tone.
