vintage noiseless strat pickups or texas single coil Pups?

I'm looking for a hendrix, srv kind of tone.

dangit, I really wanted a fender deluxe player's, or a fender roadhouse, and those were the Pups that they would come with.

Just get the guitar then. They are nice guitars and will be better than a Standard, but the pups aren't comparable to other ones costing as much as they do as a set. Maybe take them out and sell them and then buy new ones?
