So, I've used the Gen 4 Fender Noiseless on my strat... I like it for the most part, except for the fact that the neck pickup died on me, three times (link). And now I think it died for good. The only thing is, I wish the Gen 4 pickups were like 10-20% softer in output. They all read 10k or more. Here is what I considered as a replacement for all 3 pickups: Bill Lawrence/Wylde: I owned a Bill Lawrence L200 set for Tele and wasn't all that impressed with its tone. Wasn't bad and definitely better than the stock pickups, but just lacked chime, but maybe they have a better strat set. Kinman: After watching countless YouTube demo videos, I was ready to purchase either the Traditional MK-4 from Kinman or the E69 set (link to demo). However, it seems like the page is down. Now, in absence of Kinman which one is a good alternative in your opinion? I don't want a super vintage tone (like what you would find in a 1954 strat), but not something too hot like the 2008-2011 American Standard single coil pickups either... just something in the middle. What are your suggestions?
