Doing some upgrading to my stratocaster and I need some help choosing pickups all three, neck, middle & bridge. I need something that will work great for mainly blues and rock. I've gravitated towards the DiMarzio brand but I'm not sure which of their models will work well for the styles I mentioned. Should I look at other brands? Can anyone help me find some great sounding pickups? Your help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Tone Zone; Virtual Vintage or Cruiser. All fine DiMarzio Strat pickups for what you want to do.

I put Texas special in my neck - very great bluesy, funky, neck solo pickup In the middle - Van Zandt Rock - It's really great for rock music and works well with texas special together. In the bridge you could add maybe single coil sized humbucker, for the heavier music, if you do like it )

I put a combo of SD SSL-1 in the neck and middle and a SD SSL-5 in the bridge and it sounds unreal

+1 To lollars and lace sensors.

There's also bare knuckle pups.


And another brand called shadow, i've never tried their pups but they might sound good.
