I love everything about a Mexican Fender except the PUs and the birds nest of wires used. I replaced my bought strats PUs with tex-mexs and used vintage 57/63s in my strat build. To my ears the Tex-Mexs sound a bit twangier and the 57s more full. I've got vintage 64s on the way for my Tele upgrade. I prefer push bsck wire mainly because its easier to work with.
