My HSS stratocaster is close to getting my dream tone but not quite cutting it. I'm considering getting rid of my Tex Mex and DH-1 humbucker (really out of place on a strat in the first place) in favor of a set of these;

But I really have not had any experience with them, other than people saying "They're great!" There have to be some downsides to what I'm doing. Can anyone help me out and tell me what they think about the set? Thanks =)

They're great pickups, but they're expensive.

EDIT: They're $190 now? Used to be $230 or so...
Did you know the odds of a Vault-Tec shelter failing are 1,763,497 to 1?

Yeah, 190$ I have been considering buying whole new guitars recently, but now thats aside, as long as they are under 200 or so, I don't even care, I want my tone. I've been going without it way too long.

EDIT: What do you think about them in comparison to Tex Mex pickups?

I installed those pickups myself in my 62 reissue strat and love them. They can get a little too bright at times, and they are not the greatest for distortion (obviously), but other than that they are great. Turn the gain up for a great 60's rock tone, yet it sounds great clean too. Sometimes I think I get a better SRV tone going through my Super-Sonic than with Texas specials.
