Fender needs to sell these seperate.
I love them and have put them in all my strats but one and plan on it too.

I first got a set in my Highway 1 2009 those matched with the Alnico 5 16 ohm Humbucker are Monsters

The neck ohms at almost 11 and the middle almost 12

Really has that early Aerosmith Joe Perry tone
I just loaded them into my American Deluxe HSS wow what a great pickup.

Can't say I've ever liked many of Fender's pickups except for those with flat pole pieces.

They stick out some but are not staggered.

DC resistance bears little or no relation to pickup output levels

Ok back from that brief station identification...

Tried out the American Deluxe Fresh DH-1/Diamondback/Atomic/Hot Rod in the bridge

Hot Alnico 3s in the neck and middle wired American Standard.

Just border line Thermo Nuclear.

The other guitarist is taking out his Texas Specials and installing a set in his along with his Atomic/Diamondback Humbucker.

OK third set of hot alnico 3s that ohm out almost 12 are on its way.
Outfitting the guitars and working up the Aerosmith tunes.
Hopefully the Tribute band pays some cash to buy us some studio time :)

Ah....one man's dog poop is another man's gold!
I have numerous Highway One HSS's and I absolutely HATED the stock pickups!!
ESPECIALLY the DH-1/Atomic humbuckers!! Couldn't get rid of them quick enough!
All sold on E-Bay!
I've replaced all the pickups and am a much happier camper!

I think for the Hard Rock and Metal Player the Alnico 3 and Atomic is perfect. Blues and Country wont work with them I dont think.
