This is the DiMarzio model that Mark Knopfler used to have in his red Fender Strat in the late 70ies. It has a hotter and fatter sound (FS stands for fat Strat).

From autumn 1978 on, he had it in the neck position but I have some good reason ( see this blog post ) to believe it was in the middle position before. The sound in the 1 & 2 position of the 5-way is really different with a DiMarzio in the middle, compared to two Fender stock pickups: less nasal, warm bottom and treble that cuts better through the mix --> Sultans of Swing (first album version)

The FS-1 comes with his own white or black plastic cap but when being careful your existing pickup cap should fit. I deliver the version with white cap.

!!! Note: If you want all sound capabilities of the FS-1 in the neck or in the middle position, plus the normal vintage sound, you can go for the VFS-1 pickup (Vintage Fat Strat) which is a tapped pickup designed to have both sounds switchable !!!

This pickup is simply monstrous! It's a bomb of mid tones and gives its best in the middle position, combined ...
