    I have an American Standard Stratocaster and I'm planning to change the pickups, maybe for the CS69.

    May doubt is: Can I use staggered pickups with the American Standard neck?

    Thank you

    Fralin does a hybrid stagger for modern fingerborad radiuses (or would it
    be radi).

    Yes

    What about Eric Johnson Stratocaster? This model has staggered pickups and a modern neck...

    There is no problem using theses pickups with modern necks? Good!

    Some people (me) notice that the G string really stands out as much louder when doing delicate arpeggio and chord melody stuff. Otherwise, no problem.
