So I'm going to buy a set of vintage-style pickups for my Strat, all single-coils. I've decided that my noiselesses aren't really doing the things I want, so I've been looking for a good set, but I want to hear your guys' opinions. I've heard lots of good things about the Seymour Duncan Antiquities, as well as Fender's Custom Shop pickups. Apparently Bare Knuckle makes some amazing ones, but I'd rather not ship them all the way from England. Budget is $200, American. Thanks.

Talk to Corduroyeu. Rockmonkeyguitars.com all the way. They're handwound custom for you and are really the best things you can get. I have some in my strat and they're fantastic.

You should probably mug John Frusciante or Ritchie Blackmore. They're small guys, we could take 'em.

Just look out for that other guy in the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Will Farrel. He's a tall mofo, got a long reach.

I can't imagine anything worse than shagging to Mark Knopfler.

Maybe shagging Mark Knopfler, but that's about it.

Lace sensors =/= rockmonkeyguitar pickups. I'm sorry sir, but you are mistaken. Rockmonkeyguitar pickups all the way. Do it, you know you want to.

rockmonkeyguitars.com pickups or Lindy Fralin pickups would probably be your best bets.

As long as they fit into your budget, that shouldn't be a problem. It's no extra stress on you getting them shipped from England unless the shipping costs put you over budget.

I'd still look at Lindy Fralin and maybe Stephens Design pickups. I think they're both American made.

Any opinion on the custom shop fenders? Seems like no one reccomends them...

I have CS Texas Specials, but I got them when they were $130 a set. At the prices they want for them now, the boutique guys do a better job for a similar price.
