    In Strat one, I have a a set of Lollar Dirty Blondes and they sound excellent. In Strat two I'd like to switch out the stock pickups. I would like a set that compliments the Lollars. Meaning not the exact same sound, but able to dial in some classic Strat tones.

    I would say the tones I'm looking for would be Steve Miller, Jackson Browne, Hall & Oates, Dire Straits, John Mayer...

    Recommendations?

    First thought was Fralin Vintage Hots
    They have a different tone, but more chimey bell like

    A lot of people used to recommend Lollar Blondes for Dire Straits
    hard to disagree

    Another favorite of mine are Fender Custom Shop 54s
    Only wish they are RW/RP

    Klein S-5's or Jazzy Cats would be a nice compliment.
