    I love my recently acquired Affinty Strat but the neck and middle pick up are seriously weaker than the bridge humbucker and are slated for replacement.Can you guys recommend strong replacements?

    what kind of pickup set up do you have is it a humbucker with two single coils? you might try adjusting the pick up height of the neck and middle pick up raising it closer to the strings, this can really help dial the sound in, and is a simple enough thing to do. especially if they are sounding "quite" or "thin" is this what you are experiencing?

    Yes that is the configuration, I will try raising the pick ups and see if that helps.

    clockwise to raise
    I usually count the number of turns I do so I can return it to where it was if i want, turn both left and right side same amount of turns, try maybe a whole turn and then pluck/strum and see if you notice a difference, and keep adjusting from there,
    If it sounds good to you but lets say the bottom string(s) sound quite or thin then you can just adjust that side to fine tune it so to speak

    Fender Deluxe Drive pickups. They were used on the upgraded Highway Ones. Very hot and a flat modern stagger, they blend great with humbuckers.
