I just bought a 91" american standard stratocaster (great buy, guitar was not played most of it's life and in almost mint condition).

The stock pickups sound pretty good but definatly are noisy in the bridge and neck pickups. I was thinking of getting a hotter pickup for the bridge like maybe a mini humbucker (heavy distortion would be nice). To make things easier I was thinking of just getting a pickup set.

Does anyone have any recommendations for pickup replacement, (maybe some fender noiseless pickups?)

thanks for any help,
Joe

An American Strat should really not be that noisy as is.

You can always take steps to shield your guitar.

Yes we want to help you.

What kind of music do you play most?

What amp are you running your guitar through?

Answer those please.
