I'm currently making a few mods on my Strat. Started out with purely cosmetic mods, like black pickup covers, black pickguard, black knobs. Then I melted down the trem arm to suit my tastes.

Now, I want to upgrade my pickups. I've never been fully satisfied with the stock single-coils, so I was looking into DiMarzios (I'm planning on putting them on my RG550 also) and looked at the FS-1 (in the Bridge position) and Blue Velvet Neck, keeping the stock middle-pickup. I play mostly Progressive, bit of Fusion, and Blues. I want to be able to get good heavy sounds, nice cleans, Progressive-style, and Blues-style. Would these pickups suit my needs? Anyone have these or have had significant experience with these?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
