This is kind of a funny problem because I bought this MIM Stratocaster recently but I have no idea what kind of pickups are in it. I've only played my other MIM Stratocaster with the stock ceramic pickups so I'm confident that these are not stock ones. I'm looking into possibly purchasing a similar set of pickups for my other Strat, I just need to know what pickups are in this one.

Any help would be appreciated

Is it new or used? What year is it? The MIM Fender models have had some changes to the pickups over the years of production. Those look like stock pickups. Some years had nicer sounding stockers than others.
Gear: Gibson Les Paul Studio, Gibson SG Special, Fender Stratocaster, Fender Telecaster, Fender Jazzmaster, Gretsch Pro Jet, Carvin C350, Epiphone ES-339 P90, Epiphone ES-335 Pro. Peavey 6505, Sovtek MIG-100, Vox AC30, Peavey XXX.

Used, 09. I guess that could be an option, I was comparing it to the pickups on my 95 MIM Strat which sound very muddy

It's quite funny how subjective things are. I have a '95 strat and LOVE the stock pickups. I have owned at least seven or eight other strats and I always wished that the pickups sounded like my '95's.
