I know this question has been asked before, asking it again in 2017 to see if anything has changed. I've got an '85 Tokai AST-56. That's why I lower-cased strat, although it's practically a Strat. I currently have GFS Vintage Alnico pickups in it, it's been upgraded with a Mojotone harness and I have the bridge pickup wired into the tone control. I'm looking to do something to change things up. I toyed with making it an HSS, had my eyes on a TV Jones Classic for the humbucker, but it's only routed for single coils and I don't want to fool with routing the thing out for the humbucker to fit. So I'm looking for jangly regular Strat pickups. I know Strats aren't going to be as jangly as a Rick (I also have one of those) or a Tele, but I want to maximize what I can get out of it because that's the kind of music I gravitate to, and the style of playing I gravitate to. (Given that I'm approaching 60 with arthritic fingers, the maple board Tokai with the soft V neck also is the easiest guitar right now for me to play either comfortably or competently). I'm an arpeggiating rhythm guitar player, basically, and if I do any lead it's along the lines of early Peter Buck with REM. Another example, think Alex Chilton with Big Star. To get this out of the way, I never play without a compressor, ever, and I pick down near the bridge, and I use a lighter pick, and while I prefer Fender amps (currently use a Super Champ XD), I have a Vox in a box pedal. (In my dreams I'd have an AC-30 with Blues, but realistically I don't NEED one right now.) So I have the non-pickup stuff covered. So, what pickup options would you suggest that are currently available? Or am I realistically not going to find anything better than I have now.
