It cost me 20 something bucks and screams. Some people on Harmony Central and The Gear page have posted samples of the pickups, if you're interested in listening. I would warn that cheaper pickups might be microphonic, but the most loyal PAF clones come without any wax potting, and authentic Strat pickups get a perfunctory dip in lacquer by way of potting. I can plug the guitar straight in to all of my amps except the solid state practice amp and get a good sound. If not, you could just leave well enough alone.
All these pups sound imho very good indeed.
guitar fetish pickups?
