For months I’ve been posting to threads (and even starting a couple) about my Strat search. I talked about Strat copies/budget Strats. And then, several weeks ago, I impulse bought a Peavey Raptor Plus. It’s not a Strat, or even a Strat copy, really. (Neither the headstock nor the body is a direct copy, and it has two control knobs, not three, with a slightly different placement.) But the pickup configuration is pretty much Strat-ish: 3 single coils, 5-way selector with the 2 notched positions. Problem is, I’m not that crazy about the pickups. They’re ceramic, and they’re pretty “edgy.” I was hoping for sweeter, vintage Strat tones. So now I’m wondering, “What replacement pickups would more fit the tones I hear in my head?” My favorite pickups in my teles are Twang Kings, so my first thought was to check out DiMarzio pickups. I’ve listened to a few videos of the True Velvet set, and the Area set. What else would you recommend, hopefully in the same general price range?
