As the title says, I am looking for a neck pickup for my Squier strat. The kind of tone I am after is the bell-like sound that the Stratocaster is famous for (which the current neck pickup is doing a horrid job at). I would prefer noiseless, but it isn't nessasary. There is no budget, so there is no need to worry about that. Thanks in advance

EDIT: I can afford a good pickup, but I cannot afford a good guitar at this point in time. I would just get a new strat if I could afford that.

In the strat-talk forum, there is a discussion on the stratiest strat pickups
/pickup-forum/46564-stratiest-strat-pickups.html

You might find that interesting. The question was almost along the same line as yours. Personally i dig the tex-mex on my road worn 60s strat, however, the neck pickup can get a bit muddy depending on the pedals and the amp.

I really wouldn't drop a super nice pup into a Squier.

Maybe get a cheaper pup like an SD and just save the extra $50 you'd save toward a nicer Strat altogether.

I am by no means a single coil expert, but perhaps something like a SSL-2?
