Here is a list of boutique pickup men, the pickups all vary in price from $100 - $300+, which one would be the best bang for the buck? Generally I found they all offer a vintage/50s model, a high output/texas/blues model and a hendrix/60s model.

I'd usually say Rockmonkey is best bang for buck, but I'm not sure about the transatlantic factor.
Actually called Mark!

I never played any of these, but I wanted to say that lindy fralin makes some outstanding pickups.
Can be found here:
www.cms-music.de

Anyone who ever played a Morgaine guitar knows what I'm talking about. Pure vintage sound.

EDIT: Hehe, I'm dumb, I just saw you listed those.

Nice list! Good luck with your decision. I haven't even begun thinking about pickups in my strat yet but I will look to this list when the time comes!

Synsonics Strat Copy with Hotrails Pickup in the bridge

your big problem there is going to be finding someone who's tried all off those, or even close to all of those. Best of luck, though.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.
