    Default Single Coil Pickup Choice

    I just picked up one of the Road Worn strats, and I don't care for the Tex-Mex pickups in it.
    I've got my options narrowed down to three choices:

    There is the Everything Axe set from Seymour Duncan, which consists of a JB-Jr, a Duck-Bucker, and a Little '59. I've had a JB-Jr in one of my strats before, so I know what to expect from that one. I know I'd be happy with it tone-wise.

    The next option is a set of Lace Sensors. It's the Red, Silver, Blue set. I've had this exact set in a Strat before, and I loved it. I especially liked the Red Lace.

    Finally, there is the Hot Noiseless set from Fender. This is the new Jeff Beck pickup. I have never used these particular pickups, so I just don't know how they compare to the others.

    I want to be able to pull off good high gain tone without being shrill or twangy. As far as clean tone goes, I want it to be a good clean tone, but not necessarily vintage Fender tone.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    i really like the Lace Sensor set, especially the blue in the neck, you can put ridiculous amounts of gain through it and it still sounds funky!
    Also have a look at a set of Bare Knuckle Irish Tours, you be suitably impressed
