I'm looking for SRV tones. I'm modding a Pacifica and I was gonna get regular Fender p/ups, but i dont have the money for those. I like the way Texas Specials sound. I'm going with GFS, so what's the closest to a Texas Special they have? If there's any other brands that are in the same price range that make good Texas Special-esque p/ups, im open to suggestions.

I might get a humbucker-sized P90 for the bridge, but I think i just wanna go pure-strat and stick the single coil in the humbucker cavity. How are GFS Dream 90's?

I'd probably go with the Neovin (Noise-free) Mega Texas pickups

Isn't there a loss of tone when you're using noisless single coils? I don't really care much about a bit of hum if i have better tone.

Edit: I just read about the Neovin's, i don't think they're what I'm looking for. seems like they'd sound too much like humbuckers. I want strat tone.

so you want singles with single tone?

okay then I'd say Premium Texas Strat Set, or maybe the Boston Blues

I'm leaning towards the Boston Blues, cause I really like the clean tones on songs like Lenny and Riviera Paradise. I think the Premium Texas Strat set would be too hot. Or would they?

What about the 1960s Repro sets and the Strat [Texas/Vintage] Stagger sets?

If you want more cleans, then go with the Boston Blues, if you like it a little more dirty, or with punch, however you wanna say it, then I'd go for hotter pickups.

Thanks. Just a question, how do their "Vintage" wound pickups sound in comparison to their "Texas" wound?

I think vintage are wound to specific specs from periods, like, vintage wires, hand bevelled magnets, stuff like that.

Texas are wound differently to get a more, (you guessed it) texas rock kinda tone.

I can't give you the details exactly, I'm not a pickup expert.

Lol. how do they sound? They dont give a specific model of pickups... I would assume that getting the pickups seperate would give me better pickups.
