Pretty soon, I would like to upgrade my MIM Classic '70s strat. I've been thinking over for a long time about what pickups I want and the sound I'm looking for,I play classic rock and blues(intermediate level, still woodshedding). For a strat with an Ash body, what pickups can give me a Clapton, Hendrix or David Gilmour sounds? I'm considering: Fender Custom Shop '54s - I've heard/read that these are better suited for Ash body Strats, I like a lot what I've heard of them. Fender Custom Shop '69s - I was set on buying these for a while but the more I read about and what I've heard of audio/video clips on internet, I'm not really sure anymore if these are the ones I want. Gold Lace Sensors - I love the late 80-90s era Clapton tones. Lollar Vintage Tweed - I really like these but they're a little over my budget right now. Let me know what has worked for you from your experience with the same or similar guitar, thanks!
