Well, it all depends on who she is. Some girl's guitars are really easy to get into and cost almost nothing. Some remain shut their entire lives and arent very fun to play, nor do they sound good.

I have a set of GFS hot alnico staggered single coils in my strat and they sound great, money notwithstanding. I would consider these pickups even if they cost more. They have more mids, a solid texas special sound, very good tones with fairly high output (9 ohms) for a single.
It's a fine line between clever and stupid.
