    I've got a made in USA Fender Toronado (Highway one model I think) in fiesta red. The guitar looks and plays amazingly well but....... I find myself MUCH more of a single coil guy now, so 99% of the time I only play my strat :( currently fitted are the stock Fender Atomic II humbuckers.

    So I'm chasing a much nicer sounding clean tone. The Dream 90's from GFS are reviewed to be quite weak sounding and stratty like - which to me sounds like it would be perfect. I would have to ship these from USA to the UK, which makes them cost a lot more to experiment with.

    So before I go ahead and buy these, does anybody have any better suggestions?
