Hey guys...right now I have a set of Fender Texas Specials in the ol strat and the middle pickup keeps going out....I've resoldered the thing atleast 5 times and it works for a while, but eventually it quits and i have to take the guitar apart again. I've narrowed it down to the pickup itself i think. So, since I need to get a new middle pickup, I might as well get a whole new set. But.....what to get???
I want something warm!
Nothing bitey or shrill!

try carefully scraping a little of the insulation from the thin pickup wire with a razor blade where it meets the hookup leads and then reflowing the solder.

I concurr with the fat 50's. Warm and ballsy, definately not shrill although the bridge does bit a bite with OD (in a good way).

Recently I've put the following combo into my project strat:

N - Dimarzio Area 61
M - Dimarzio Area 61
B - Dimarzio Solo Pro

Look no further, they match fantastically with rosewood board, lots of warmth, good definition and dead silent.
