Hey yall. Im a 14 year old kid out of NY so i dont have to much money but im looking for some new pups for my strat. I just got a cube 60 which i have grown fond of and really prefer it to the lower end tube amps i tried. My favorite positions are the bridge and the neck+mid. This is great except i get some terrible humming. So im looking for some real vintage sounding strat pickups. I am trying to get a david gilmour, Hendrix, SRV tone. I like to play some rush and zep and stuff of that sort so versatality is key. I a going to play pyschedelic, blues, classic rock, some hard rock. I want to stick out and get some different sounds. Thank you all.
Gear.

Not too sure about the Gilmour and Hendrix sound, but if you want SRV tone you can't go wrong with Texas Specials.

Im up for putting in different types of pickups with eachother. Variety is the spice of life. Unless i can find a set that is all good for me

I've gotta say it won't make that huge of a difference through the Cube but how much do you plan on spending on the pups?

Well, technically it could be done, but only in the same way that you could change a cat into a hamburger. It's an unpleasant process, and nobody is happy with the result.

I was wondering that also. The cube is cool because the regular clean channel acts as a tube and starts to break up so usually i just boost the volume and it gives me a nice little natural OD. Atleast as natural as a SS is gona get. If i didnt love the single coil sound so much i wouldnt be looking for new ones but the hum is ridiculous.
