I just got a new Strat, a 70's Classic and I have decided to make this into my Hendrix Strat, while my H1 is my SRV/John Mayer/Blues Strat. Now, I was looking into boutique pickups and I heard from some people here that SD's were great. The Red House's are the ones I want I believe. Does anyone have these? Are there any other pickups you could recommend? I was also thinking Fralin Woodstock '69's.

Well, what's your price limit? I have heard that SD's were pretty good pups for single coils, but also check out BKP's if money isn't an object to you.


By the way, that's some crazy rig.

Yeah too bad I kinda suck at playing, haha.


But I really spend all my money on gear. It'll take me a few months to scrounge up the money for these pickups considering I just got this new guitar. The pickups are it's weak point definitely. They're extremely bright and hum like crazy.

I have SD mojo pickups and they are fantastic. if i get another strat im putting in the red house set unless something better comes out. bareknuckle makes awesome stuff but none of their single coil lines are directed at hendrix, more clapton and knofler. still, you can get the hendrix tone with those pickups. bareknuckle does ship to the us. if you can afford bkps you could also afford kinman pickups. the woodstock or watever its called should suit you just fine plus they are noiseless w.o losing any of the tone regular single coils would have. overall i think the SD pickups are the best value. there are soundclips on all the sites so you be the judge.

Haha, same.

Pick ups will help your guitar loads considering you have a real nice amp! I really suggest looking into bare knuckles though .

Fralin's are nice. I don't heard much praise for SD save their P-90's.

BKP aren't worth all the extra money + shipping etc. IMO

I actually (sorta) agree with that statement, they're VERY expensive in the states, especially for shipping fees, if you're going to get it soldered, etc. but honestly, I love mine and think they're worth it.

the sound clips sound excellent (sd's) but that's all I have, sorry. BKP are kind of shooting themselves in the foot by not having more soundclips up, IMO.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Actually I've been playing my new Strat more and I kind of like the sound I'm getting. It's bright and they hum a little, but I like it. Pretty vintage sounding. Eventually I may swap the pickups, but probably not anytime soon. But thanks for all the info guys.
