Topic: Pups

Whilest playing my new strat, the affordable price that it was,, the pickups reflect the price point.  SO how about some of these in the neck and center http://www.guitarfetish.com/Brighton-Ro … _1521.html and one of these in the bridge (and I have put this in a V and know it ROCKS) http://www.guitarfetish.com/GFS-Power-R … p_341.html

for the price on the pickups you cant beat it,, and I would get this if it was in black,, gotta say the price is very seductive.  http://www.guitarfetish.com/Pearl-Wired … p_610.html  just dont wanna loose one of my betties, although she can be reordered also, dont think the pearl white on the color of my guitar will work. 

Thoughts?

I purchased three Texas coils for my strat from these guys and added a custom blender sound is so sweet and sustaining! smile

Re: Pups

Bought two sets of pickups from these guys (set of tele pickups and a set of humbuckers for the les paul) and both were excellent.  Give it a go, you can always sell them on if they're not for you.

Re: Pups

Pickup voices are so much a matter of personal taste, depending on the type of music a person likes / plays. My own preference for a Strat pickup is the Fender "Fat '50", for a thicker sound similar to what David Gilmour gets from his rig. I believe the GuitarFetish version is their "Fat Vintage" version. Gilmour uses a Fat '50 at the bridge, and Custom Wound at the mid and neck.

Re: Pups

I love the HOT sound I get from the rails , As I said I have used one of them before.  And honestly, I just love the ballsy look of the Brighton's. I was thinking of the Dream 90s with the black mother of pearl. IDK IDK DECISIONS DECISIONS! LOLOLOL

Additionally, Last night I was playing a Am riff with the strat, and it was ok, but then when I played it with the SG and the Lynch pick up, MAN WHAT A DIFF! So yea defiantly need to do something!
