Hello everybody! This being my first post here, let me thank everybody for the astonishing amount of info I've been able to find on the forum. I'm currently about to purchase a '96 ST 62 in shell pink, for which I'm super pumped. It's going to be my first strat and I've been chewing thorough Rabea Massaad's and Mick Taylor's strat vlogs on YouTube trying to source some inspiration for the pups that I'm going to put inside my guitar (The seller has already said he would prefer not to sell those already in, given they are custom wound by his luthier.). Now the question is, what pickups am I going to buy? I'm 21 and I didn't have the chance to listen to any real good strat live, so I don't really have any reference to base myself upon. However, thanks to YT I think I've gotten to a point where I at least know what I don't like. I'm quite convinced the two main varaibles for me are going to be output and high end response. I don't like hot pickups and I really don't like the nasal timbre that some pickups seem to have, especially in the high end. I also don't really know the market nor the options at my disposal. Budget is not necessarily an issue, I'll just save up for a little bit longer if needed, but please keep mind that this is not for professional use. To wrap it up, if you have any suggestion about a 60ish set of pickups that I should check out, then I'd be glad to hear it. I know this is going to result in option paralysis given the amount of sets available, but I really don't like the idea of buying something without knowing the market, so come at me ahah. Thank you very much, this forum really fuels a lot of people's passion and that's really quite impressive.
