I had the deluxe set up in a strat for years. It was the blue, silver, red, neck, mid, bridge. I liked them in that guitar alot. That was an ash body with a maple neck. The pups arent as high end or sparkly but they are still versatile and work quite well. I now have a set of the chrome domes in a hollow strat. I liked em at first but realize that with the hollow bodies not having quite the attack as a solid that these may not be the pups for it.
