Fender American Special Mahogany Strat

http://www.guitarcenter.com/Fender-American-Special-Mahogany-HSS-Stratocaster-Electric-Guitar-511165-i1168160.gc

i've been wanting one of these for awhile now and im planning to save for it.
I play metal and all, but im about to join a grunge/punk band (nirvana/social distortion influence) and i always wanted a fender strat since my friend has the squier version of this and it is honestly quite good.
anyone have any personal opinions on this/personal experiences?
just want to know what ya'll think of this.
I really love this guitar.

and

EMG 89 (wtf?)

that single/hum pickup looks sick, but I'd definitely have to try one out first before investing in it. great idea though.
Current Rig:
Fender CS Eric Clapton Strat
Fender '65 Twin Reverb Reissue
Digitech Crossroads Pedal

In the stereo: The Rolling Stones - Let It Bleed

it throws me off because nobody uses EMG 89s, and it's like...wow are they brand new?
i like how the EMG part is in pink on the black cover one
it would match my Alexi perfectly (yeah i got the special edition with the pink bevels)

um..why 89? nobody uses them...

try out some 81s...or i might even suggest not to go with EMGS, try seymour duncans
#5
im not asking are they good or not newb (that wasn't nice of me )
i just wanna know what's the dealio with them?

and you know what.
i highly HIGHLY doubt you've tried the Blackouts yourself.
they aren't even designed for 6-string guitars you know that?

That means they must be bad, if Zakk Wylde doesn't use them
