Wow, $150 per pickup will get you just about anything. For your application, I recommend getting something noiseless. Check out Kinman and Joe Barden. I highly recommend either.
The Kinman pickups sound and feel really authentic, whereas the Bardens are capable of the vintage sound but can also sound more modern depending on setup, your rig, and playing style.
I recommend avoiding the Fender noiseless pickups. They always sound lifeless to me.
