These sound pretty good to me. Exactly what I'm going for, cleanwise.

That sounds quite muddy... and somewhat overdriven for a clean tone.

I'd always recommend trying out Bare Knuckle Pickups... you'll never go back to the big 3 pickup makers after trying out a BKP. Their singles throw out quite a creamy sound.

Maybe I'm just desensitized. I've been playing a stock MIM Strat for years. It's one of the 60th anniversary models, except it doesn't even have the Tex-Mex pickups.

Link me to what a pickup should sound like in your opinion :3.

I have been modifying my strats for about 8 years and have used almost every Fender sold strat pup as well currently using the Dragon Fire Texas Blues. I used these to replace my Texas Specials, as they were a bit mid range heavy and tended to be muddy. I prefer these for SRV tone. That said, I am also looking at the exact same config you are and trying to select between the exact same pickups. The DFTBs were constructed as well as anything I have ever used from Fender.

I own the DF Hot Rail ( 12.2k ohms) and the GFS "Lil Killer (15k ohms). Both were great. DF Hot Rail had some BL-250, YJM, Chopper and some PAF tonal tendencies The GFS "Lil Killer was good in the middle position of 80's Kramer.

Why do you sound so negative about these pick ups. I heard samples of your playing ... and that in it self .... nullifies your negativity about these pick ups

It is not the pickups, it is the fact you keep bumping threads that are 3+ yrs old.

And obviously you dont come here often, Greeny is a very knowledgable person on these forums.
And for what it is worth the few DF pickups I have tried sucked so.......
