I made a thread about this a few days ago in the GG&A forum, but nobody answered the last and most important question.

so which one suits me best?, I want a nice clean strat tone (sambora, clapton,...) but also a raw blues sound (SRV, Hendrix)

I know that texas specials are good too, but I can't find cheap ones in Europe

Which position are you replacing the pickup in?

Well both them Fender pickups you looked at on eBay are for the mid position, just to let you know.

Yup, they're made specifically for the mid position, therefore they'll sound different to a neck pickup.

for that SRV sound you need to combine the neck and middle position, so youd need two pickups...and dont get buddy guy sigs, he used gold lace sensors forever...

You're joking right?

Depends on what SRV sound you are going for. If you're going for the overdriven tone, you only need one pickup; neck OR middle.
