Hey guys.

I have a MIM Strat at the minute, I'm looking to replace the stock pickups. I play rock (Feeder, Foo Fighters, Ash, Oasis type stuff) and blues, but also like a nice clean tone.

I'm finding the neck pickup far too muddy, and the bridge hasn't got enough punch to it.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

These are the pickups that a lot of people seem to recommend:

Fender Custom Shop '69s

Fender Texas Specials

Seymour Duncan SSL's maybe

Lace Sensors

Dimarzio Area 58s and 61s

And if you are in the UK, definitely look into Bare Knuckle Pickups, or if you are in the US, look into Lollar pickups.

Also watch loads of Youtube videos of pickups to see which ones you like the sound of.
