So I was GASing for for a strat with maple neck, 2-tone sunburst, nitro finish. Originally I was looking for an American made, but that would mean selling one of my guitars. That’s not gonna happen, so when I found a used Classic 50’s Lacquer for an ok price (only used 2-3 times according to the seller), I bought it. Ok, I know I should try the original pickups first, but I also know people are changing the pups also. In my excperience sometimes to great effect. In any case, I’ve been looking for some used pickups, and some new and these are my four options right now (about the same price): 1. Used CS 54 set 2. New Pure Vintage ‘59 3. New Pure Vintage ‘65 4. Used Lindy Fralin vintage hot - bridge only, keep original middle and neck. So about half the price. I have four guitars w/humbuckers so it doesn’t need to be used for metal (obviously), but if it can handle early 70s style hardrock/heavy blues (like first two Priest, Purple, first two Black Sabbat) it would be nice. You know, a little bit of grit. So anyone?
