I've got them in my black strat now, wired with a Chromacaster (allowing pickups to be combined to make a humbucker) They are extremely clear, responsive and powerful sounding. I have the "Blues whatever" and its a good one. Also I had a pickup go bad and went down to see them to drop it off for a rewind. (I live in Richmond). Really wanted to see his shop,which isn't much. But what a great guy. Set me right up.Just replaced the dead pickup with a new one and showed me where the wire had broken. I'm just a dude learning and he was great to take the time to walk thru it with some guy off the street. So his customer service and "get it right" attitude aid in any transaction. Ultimately its the sound and they sound great. Good luck.

If I understand Jerry's pickup choices on Wolf, he had the stock Fender pickups swapped out regularly, so in theory a '74 Fender pickup should nail the '74 Jerry tone. Well that's the theory anyway. I have no idea whether Wolf's pups were actually stock or some special alembic rewind, or maybe something else entirely.

I am considering either the Dimarzio area pups or the Fralin Split blades, kind of leaning toward the Fralins at this point. If you don't mind waiting a month for my project to be done, I will let you know and put up some clips.
Currently I play a stock Clapton strat with Fender's noisless pups and after finally dialing in the sound right on the SMS and getting two JBLs most folks say it sounds very Jerry...
I think a good single coil and the right amp can get you pretty close (especially to the 70's stuff)
I will try to post some youtube, not sure how this works though. I'm the guy playing lead over in the shadows/barely visible.
