ok, so basically i might be able to get a used mexican standard strat that the original owner put fender custom shop vintage noiseless pickups on. how are those pups?
also, the person put schaller locking tuners on it. how are those?
thanks

i don't like fender noiseless pickups. they don't have the highend chime. thats why i'm taking out my hot noiseless set, and putting in a boutique handwound set soon.

schaller locking tuners are good. people like them a lot on strats. esp. the mexican made ones.

^its ok. depends on the amp mostly. but the noiseless doesn't have the high end chime. thats what i said. won't do SRV tone too well. Clapton uses vintage noiseless, and i think its okay for the modern claptone.

haha. that's waht CorduroyEW says. he says his pickups can make a $100 guitar sound better than a $1200 stock guitar.

thats... what i hope.

i'll be spending $350ish on a new neck too.

^that might be an okay deal... but you might be able to get a stock strat, slightly used for $200. you have more money to spend on it if you need modifications. like i said, i can't guarantee you if the noiseless would give you the sound you want. as your ears mature, your gears would sound ****tier and ****tier. it's a fact. i'm suffering this right now. i wnat new pickups, new neck, everything to satisfy my ears.

if you want modern, gilmour emg set is the only way

if you want strat raw sounds, i like fralin or texas hots

i like the vintage noiseless pickups. Sure it loses some chime, but it still sounds like a single coil and prevents it from being too harsh. I've got them in mine, and im satisfied

Though i would like the fender '69 customs
