well. im happy to report that the guy who put em in for me did it in under a day. i now have my baby back with the new pupps in it.
all the unwanted string noise is GONE. and along with that, there is a certain purity to be found in the tone now. also... all notes have more clarity. i can happily play chords on the overdriven channel and they actually sound nice.
these pickups are fantastic.
they could have a little bit more power. but sometimes its nice that you have to work that little bit harder. cause it makes the payoff feel great.
i'd give the "Fender Hot Noiseless Stratocaster Pickups" a healthy 9/10
i can now see my Strat as my first really stunning guitar. was always nice on the fingers. now its nice on the ears too
