Blues R&B Funk Classic Rock Country Reggae/Ska

I have had numerous strats and teles and everything in between. As everyone knows, there is something about strats and teles that make them so easy to use. Anyone can take them a part and change out what they want. But this is about the sound of these pups. I have a classic series 50 strat and wanted it to be as close to a 56 or 57 strat as possible. I saw these and got a killer deal on them. They are great. Low output of course. Great for blues, funk, R&B, older country (not that new stuff they are calling country). Good sound that nails buddy guy, Curtis mayfield, David Gilmour, Steve winwood, mark knopifler, and of course clapton and all the other greats that fused all that music together to make rock n roll. Also great for a Motown sound. If you are trying to play grunge or anything else that is somewhat hard, don't get these or a strat for that matter. Really has a clean, funky, bass sound to it. Still has the bite of a fender though. Put it on the bridge pickup and it will be as sharp and trebley as I like. I do recommend getting your tone knob wired to the bridge pup if you don't already have it wired. 2 and 4 position are the best I have heard excluding the real things from the 50's. Highly recommend them if you are looking for a nice clean sound with a little bite. I'm not an amateur player either. Been playing for years but I don't consider myself a professional either.
