Hey i have a stratocaster copy and it doesn't sound all that well, obviously. I don't have the money atm to buy like a really good guitar so i was thinking about replacing the pickups, i was thinking of getting a Seymour Duncan alnico pro 2 and put it in the bridge position. So would this make my guitar sound alot better or should i just wait until i get the money for a decent guitar. Thanks guys.

There's really little point changing pickups , they're not going to improve your sound in any noticeable way

^Actually, coming from someone who did change pickups using a Vox AD15VT, there is a noticeable change. It's just not as big as people would want.
TS, get a new amp first. Even an Epi Valve Junior with an OD pedal would do your tone wonders.

If you change the colour of the guitar then it has been suspected to change its tone and an overall improvment.
