What are your all time favourite Strat pickups?
The stock pickups in my Am Standard Strat sound good to me. I can't find anything wrong with them.I've owned a number of Strats since the 1980's and I did multiple pickup swaps in all of them and in the end stock Alnico V's that Fender used in American Standards are my favourites. Great clarity without sounding too thin or brittle. They seem to adapt well to any style of music I play.
Yeah it's the best Strat I've ever heard. Just enormous sounding. Late 63 / early 64 Strats are known for that warmth and girth, as well as having some of the best vintage necks. This is the era that the PRS Silversky is based on.Just used that Strat last night at a gig. My GAWD that guitar sounds and plays amazing.
