I'd love me some Custom Shop 69's, but those pups are all totally different. We could only guide based on genres and current amp and guitar

best for what? through what?



I play through a Blackstar HT-5. I just want a really versatile Strat tone, so it can do clean funky stuff aswell as Hi-gain Frusciante style stuff.

EDIT: Oyeah, the Noiseless feature would be a good bonus, but I know that tone is more important. What do you think?

Don't get the Fender Noiseless. I hear they're terrible. If you want noiseless, look into Dimarzio or Fender SCN pickups. The Dimarzio Area pickups are good and noiseless. My favorite noiseless Dimarzios would be the Cruisers though.

for me, the hot SCNs are great. its a close call between those and texas specials.
I've been imitated so well I've heard people copy my mistakes.

If the choice is there i would always go for the boutique pickups. BKPs are no exception here.

That's what I was gonna say.

LTD MH-400 with Gotoh GE1996T (EMG 85/60)
PRS SE Custom 24 (Suhr SSH+/SSV)
Ibanez RG3120 Prestige (Dimarzio Titans)

Audient iD22 interface
Peavey Revalver 4, UAD Friedman BE100/DS40

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

Fender makes a "Lace Pickup" grab a Red and Blue put the red as the neck pickup and you will have an amazing sounding guitar!
