I'm using the GFS Alnico Boutique Strat pickups in Neck and Middle, and a GFS "lil Killer" in Bridge. I love the Boutique ones, they give a great convincing vintage tone (not hot at all, btw). Sounds great through a tube amp with some reverb and a little chorus. They massively upgraded the tone of my original squier pickups, in every way. The lil killer would be good in a more metal-type guitar but doesn't work well with the boutiques, it just doesn't match up in this particular guitar. It is about 10k while the other two are 5k or something. I'm going to get a new pickup cover and try the GFS Retrotron Nashville humbucker in the bridge.
