Hi there, I have two Strats that needs some new fresh pickups. First one is a Fiesta Red 62 JV Squier. Alder body-maple/rw neck. Next one is an early Fender relic, a 95 Mary Kaye. Swamp ash body and fat maple neck. It's supposed to be the other way around but I feel the 62 is brighter than the 50's MK which is darker and woodier. I emailed JM Rolph for some help and his reply was. I make '54-55-56-57-58-59-60-61-62-63-64-65-66-67-68-69-70-71-72-73-74 Strat pickups. Can you guide me through the different years? Any major differences between them? I didn't like the stock 50's pups in the MK. I found them to be to thin/weak/dirty sounding. No bell-like tones to be found. Not glassy, more like broken glass to my ears. I liked the Voodoo ST60BL I tried. I want a warm, glassy, piano-like tone. No shrill Buddy Holly-like tone, please. Help!
