    You can get twang out of orig fenders. I prefer a tad more oomph. Cav Nashville or seymour d or fender nocasters. Imho

    I, personally, am a huge fan of the Duncan 5-2s for Strat and the Tele counterpart is so going into my next Tele!

    What's great about them is that they just keep the bass tight. So if you even remotely like the highs of A2 magnets, the 5-2s will give you that without any of the flabby low end you can get from A2s.

    I love the Fender N4 pickups in my Telecaster. I only play country. They can drive my amp or clean nicely up by turning down the volume and are very responsive to the tone control. Hum free and my Telecaster stays all Fender.

    I only play country, couple of suggestions- Oil City Pick Ups , Delta unit for the bridge,or if you can find any second hand Jerry Donahue's Fender Pick Ups . That's with a strat pick up in the neck. Clarence White-one of the greatest pickers of all time - used a strat pick up in the neck, the fact J D favoured that as well , surely says something to any country player. I'm not familiar with Seymours Donahue pick ups, but they probably would do the job.
