Hi, I have an older Strat style guitar with basic stock pickups which are very noise, and produce hum. Im guessing they have lil if any shielding. I also want to replace all my electronics and properly shield the cavity, cover.

Anyway, Im looking for new pickups but with so many choices, not sure where to start looking. I was checking out Dimarzio, and Seymour site, but its hard to make a decision listening to a sound clip, and reading specs.

Anybody have any ideas, I need a H-S-S config, and I mainly play hard rock.
My goal is to have a warm sound, and get rid of the hum...
It's kind of obvious, but single coils naturally create hum. If this bugs you, you could get pickups that cancel hum or just get a noise get.

What kind of amp, what kind of tones?
I don't give a shit if you listen to me or not
I have a 30 watt Marshall solid state amp.

I wasnt sure if I should go with Vintage output or like a medium output?
Def dont want a high gain
You're not gonna notice a substantial difference between new pups in a practice amp like that. If you're unhappy with your tone you'll do much better saving for a new amp. Pups are for fine tuning your sound, not overhauling it.

I'd suggest replacing the stock electronics and shielding the cavity.
