Any of your favorites, with an Ilitch Noise Reduction Pickguard.
I have 2 x 66 x 1 x 65 Strat pups in my Partscaster, and the Ilitch. I cant do without the Ilitch now that Ive had it 5 years. Mine is the Backplate though, as the PG wasn't available 5 years ago.
2 x Fender Custom Shop 69s x a
Seymour Duncan Custom Shop "SSL-1C DG" Hand Scatter …
That would be a great start.
single coil pickups hum canceling systems Ilitch electronics
come from using the Ilitch Silent Backplate system.
I was going to say your favorite regular single coils in a Suhr with the SSCII system, but the first reply kind of beat me to it
Lace, followed by Fender's noiseless series.
Best Hum free pickups are ....
FAIL .... The Ilitich system is not a HUM Free pickup
I like Dimarzio VV and lots of folks like The Kinmans. Also like Hot Rails and the lil 59.
Call me crazy, I like EMG SAs.
Lace Sensors and Bill Lawrence.
Depends on what you're into. I really dig the Fender Hot Noiseless ones. They're pretty even tempered and affordable. I tend to play rock with fuzz, but wanted a passable clean sound and these do it with ease.
Me too but I prefer the S pickups.
the standard (non-Holy Grail)Lace and the Lawrence models seem pretty affordable . . .
kinda looks like the competitive brands all run around $200 - $250 per set(includes the Ilitch system alternative)
as I'm a man of modest means; this where I likely am headed
Dimarzio Area = Use 500k pots
Every one I've ever tried is terrible except for the illitch backplate (bought from Suhr when they were selling them.)
I love the Classic Strat Stacks in my Warmoth. Stratty goodness, and dead quiet.
They also work great with 250k to my ears.
Dimarzio Area's are amazing pickups IMO. I have several in a couple of custom Koll's - could have chosen any pickups I wanted.
I prefer Areas as well.
Either the SAVX or SAX set. I've been a strat guy for 20 years, and I've tried tons of pickups and the EMG's are by far my favorite strat pickups I've ever used. period.
After using a set of EMG's for a while, everything else just sounds muddy and flabby by comparison. The new-ish X-series are an amazing improvement IMO, they really open things up a lot and give a lot more touch sensitivity. If you've only used the SA or S sets, you owe it to yourself to check out the X-series.
I had Area's in my last Strat. I loved them. Will probably have them again.
