I just built a Partscaster. Put some GFS Premium vintage pickups in there. Not bad really, I like them well enough. I pretty much live in the bridge position, so I'm fine with the GFS for the neck and middle positions. I'm looking for a new bridge pickup now though. I'm noticing when I'm playing in a band situation that that I'm getting lost, especially on the B and E string. They are staggered magnets. So maybe this is the cause? I want something that is going to cut through more, but still maintains that 50's Strat piano like-quality. Probably something with a hair more upper midrange. I'm aware of most of the boutique makers out there, but I've not owned a Strat in a long time, so I'm hoping some of you that may have gone down this path can shed some light. Recommendations? If this helps at all, my main basis for the tone I'm going for is Richard Thompson's sound on Calvary Cross, especially the intro, which sounds like bridge pickup for sure.
