I want to buy a 62 reissue strat and you can get the regular with american vintage pickups or the Hot Rod one. And ive heard taht the hot rod pickups are better? What is the difference between the two? Why are they better?

thank you
i'm assuming the name means they sound more overdriven than the standard pickups, similar to texas specials or other specialty strat p-ups.
Warmoth Strat w/ Lace Holy Grails
'07 Roadhouse Strat
Washburn WD-21 all Koa Acoustic
Marshall JCM-2000 TSL-122
Bugera V-5
higher output than the vintage pickups
