    Default Need pickup advice

    I have a mexican Squier Strat, sounds like crap. I was thinking about replacing the pickups for something a bit more SRV-ish or Claptonish. Basically something that's going to sound better than what it sounds like now. I'm not set in stone on what to get, so I'm wondering your advice.

    thoughts?
    Your favorite band sucks.

    I sent an email 3 days ago to the guys at GFS asking them the same question. They recommended grabbing the '64 Staggers or the Premium II's

    Here are most of the single coil pickups they offer.

    I might grab this set for myself. http://store.guitarfetish.com/64stovgrropi.html

    Don't change the Mexican Pups for even more cheap chinesse one..does'nt make much sens .. Find yourself a set of Custom Shop 54 from fender if you're looking for SRV and Clapton style. they are AWSOME pups. and not to much, on ebay, usually around 125$ to 150$.
