I was looking to get new pickups for the neck and bridge positions on my squier strat. For the neck i want that vintage, bluesy sounds - like SRV etc ( i was considering a dimarzio blue velvet). At the bridge i want something a bit fatter and hotter, but not a humbucker. i was thinking maybe a dimarzio FS-1.
Are these good pickups to use? what others could i consider?

thanks

im a huge fan of the fender texas specials. but, im pretty sure they only come new in sets and it seems kindof pointless to be putting pups on a guitar where the pups cost almost twice as much, therefore, id reccomend a new guitar

i would save for a fender standard strat first

no matter how much you do to that, it's still a squier. i think those are plywood...

Not a full-size humbucker you mean? Are you willing to go with a stacked humbucker? Does aesthetic matter to you? Also, what's your budget? You should probably replace all 3 at once if you can afford it.

BTW, for all of you guys saying "don't mod a Squier"...

Listen to his Strat sound clips. Then realize most of them are recorded with them installed into a Squier played through a little Champ amp.
