I'm currently refinishing an old fender strat that I found in a friends' closet. I bought a HH pickgaurd to go for it, but I'm stuck on which pickups. I'm aiming for DiMarzio's since I've used them before and really like them.

I'm gonna use the guitar for mainly d-tuning, with beefy slinkies. and my budget is $160 tops for both; any suggestions?
How many guitar players does it take to change a light bulb?

Twelve. One to change the bulb and eleven to say they could do it better.
