I like the pups in the 60 CV enough to sell the Lindy Fralins I had sitting around. My shop owner tried out the CV and said "that's $900 tone", and he wasn't trying to sell me the guitar, as I was already going to buy it.
It's the only stock bridge p/u I can live with.....the quack positions are worth the price of admission. Going to wire the bridge to the tone knob though.....yo Rock! What's this 50's wiring sceme you mention, sounds interesting.
I have a 50's Strat. They sound great. I'm replacing the bridge with a SC sized humbucker (GFS 10k Lil Killer) but that's just to make it a more versatile guitar for my needs. The neck and middle are staying. I've found the middle pup gets a very nice Trower tone.
