    Just installed a set of 57/62 in my 1993 '57 MIJ strat. LOVING THEM!
    While the was open I wired the bridge pup to the tone pot, quite happy about that. IMG-20211009-WA0011.jpeg

    They'll take you places you haven't been, yet. Good choice.

    Love them, they are great pickups. I have been looking around for a set myself for a few weeks now. I had some in an old Strat that were very nice that I no longer own.

    They came in my AV ‘62 Thin Skin and I wouldn’t even consider changing them.

    Great choice.

    Those are the quintessential "Strat" pickups. They can handle whatever you can throw their way.

    I can’t really describe what it is about them that I like about them other than when I’m playing I don’t think about them, if that makes sense.

    I grabbed my 57/62 guitar last night and I was reminded why it is still in the harem and has not been sold, even though it is an Affinity Squier it sounds, plays beautifully and still inspires one to bring forth sounds. Glad you like the pick ups.
