    Talking to me? If you are ;) than I am asking what is your opinion favorite pickups, I made a mistake in the title, or maybe not. All I'm saying is whatever pickup you like pops into your head, say it! ;)

    Some great pickups around these days........
    I tried the '54 Custom Shop and the '69 Custom Shop and really liked both of them........:D
    I am currently using Bare Knuckle '63 Veneers and really love them.........I also have a set of '69 Chubtones (not made any more unfortunately) that were wound custom for me and they are amazing.........:cool:

    I was in a music store the other day trying pedals and I used a new Mexi Standard Strat and I thought the pickups sounded great...........they needed some height tweaking but the tone was top notch:thumb: .

    I haven't felt the need to change out the Fat 50's in my 2012 AmSt so I would put those on a "top list".

    I don't like Hendrix or want to sound like him so I'll stick with what I have. YMMV

    The very ones that I have on my two Strats - a '57 AVRI and a '64 Custom Shop.

    Would it be an overstatement to say that Baris' reply sailed straight up & over your head?
