    Hi All
    I'm looking to get a set op replacements pickups for my strat.

    Manufacturers on the review list are Lindy Fralin, Lollar, Dimazio, Bare Knuckles etc

    Looking for traditonal strat tone with perhaps a bit more power and as quiet as possible.

    Suggestions please.

    Thanks Much.

    Bill Lawrence L-2xx series... Cheapest and prolly the best noiseless pickups along with Kinmans.

    For traditional strat tone, go with L-200 pickups.

    WCR SR's are great if you can get them. Not sure how often Jim makes them. Not a hot set but they cut through a mix like no other SC I've heard.

    I think traditional strat sound and noiseless are hard to get together. The beauty of the strat tone is the hum. Lollar Blondes are mighty fine, throw in a special in the bridge and pure heaven.

    This utube link has a demo of various pickups in Strats. In the comments section it tells you which pickup are demo 'd during the clip. You might be able to find additional sound clips on utube also.
