These classic blues pickups have lots of highs and clarity, but may be lacking a bit of the punch and full-bodied sound I'm used to. But more likely, I think it's just that I haven't gotten my rig properly dialed in around this new tone and haven't gotten the pickup heights just right yet. I'll update on sound quality after a few gigs.
The pickups look great and were pretty easy to install, though I did have to do a little sanding on my pickguard to get them to go into their holes easily.
Overall, I'm super happy with these and I recommend them to anyone else who is tired of every strat build being based around SRV's gear and would rather sound like Hendrix or Dylan, etc.

They replaced a set of Squier 50s style pickups from 20 years ago that I wax potted myself, honestly I think the original pickups had a more unique tone, though the Toneriders are definitely more usable in the general sense, more full bodied and balanced. I've owned a lot of pickups from Dimarzio, Seymour Duncan, Fender, Suhr etc and for the money these Tonerider are seriously impressive, but I do get a feeling of them being more "Generic 60's Strat" sounding, rather than having something special.
I'd still take a good set of high end aftermarket pickups given the choice, but with these being as good as they are and costing 1/3 of the price it's hard to justify paying big money.
I can honestly say that I have never so impressed with a purchase before as I have been with these pickups. They are fantastic in all respects, output, tone, attack sustain etc etc etc. And I get the sound I have always struggled to get with other strat/pickup combinations. I have tried numerous different configurations from Seymor Duncan to BareKnuckle and these Tonerider pickups beat all the major players hands down.
These have transformed a very mediocre guitar into my number one strat (I have a number including USA Standards). The pickups are so good that in my honest opinion they sound better the pickups in the US made guitars by a huge margin.
They are so good I am now going to swap the pick ups out on my other strats for these beauties. If you are looking to upgrade a cheaper lower end strat or get your standard to sound a whole lot better, but these for sure.
As I had been having issues with the volume pot and pickup switch, I decided to replace all the electrics at the same time and went with an Orange top cap ( .047uF) and a tone bleed circuit on the volume pot (tone isn't diminished as volume is lowered - Pet Hate!-)
Well last night I stripped it down, applied copper shielding tape to the pickguard and cavity and rewired. Took about 4 hours as my eyes are nowhere near what they used to be. New strings tuned it up, plugged it in and played till 4am. I just couldn't put it down.
The sound is fantastic. Through a Vox ValveTronix modelling amp, trying a range of models, (Fenders, Vox and Marshall Plexi - JCM & all the high gain stuff isn't my territory), clean & crunch, classic rock, blues, country and funk, it has it all and minimal hum (but just enough to keep it a Strat !-)..
And I would swear it makes it sound like my c**p playing has improved, or maybe being so inspired it actually has! I am now considering modding my Epiphone Sheraton and splashing on some cheap second hand MIM / Squier Strats and Teles to upgrade, as well as investing in a small tube amp. Yep, no word a lie, these TRS3s already feel like a bit of a life changing experience a few hours in!
If you are considering these, take the plunge, you won't regret it!
