I'm looking to replace the stock pickups on my 50's reissue strat. I want something with a beefier tone with out losing the signature strat quack. Any suggestions??

I played a strat with EMG DG20. They are the David Gilmour model Active pickups / pickgaurd setup. There is a volume control, a control to boost the mid range tone and one that cuts the mid and boosts the highs and lows.Listen to Dark Side of the Moon. I believe he used a 50's reissue strat with the EMGs on that album. I am going to buy a strat because of those pickups! :D

EMG did not exist when DSotM was recorded. It began in 1976.
