Hi guys! Ricardo Salas here:

Hey I recently bought an american deluxe stratocaster at guitar center in Denver Co. the guitar is amazing and I am really pleased with it. I tested it and played for about an hour and I loved the way it felt. I had previously bought a set of stratocaster pickups ( the noiseless set http://www.stringsandbeyond.com/femodshsacon.html) and I was thinking about putting them on my new guitar but I realized that my strat had those exact same pickups! I bought the fat strat, the one that has 2 single coils and one humbucker. Unfortunately, the pickups didn't sound like I wanted. For the humbucker I want something that will give me really good harmonics, I'd like to dive bomb and do stuff like that. As for the middle and neck pickups I would like to have a clean sound but with a bit of warmth, because the actual problem with the noiseless ones was that they sounded very plain, I mean the sound didn't have any warmth at all, they actually do their job pretty well, they keep the buzz noise to the minimum, but they don't have a lot of personality. About a week ago I played a 1975 telecaster, and It sounded amazing, we tried it on a vintage fender amp, and I loved the sound it had, it was... I would describe it as "shiny" and pure, it sounded really warm without distortion. My friend suggested I changed the pickups for these ones http://www.stringsandbeyond.com/fecushcu69st.html he also recommended any pickup made of alnico, I've been checking them at dimarzio and seymour duncan, but I am new to these pickups so I fear I'll choose the wrong ones.
Basically what I want is a very versatile guitar, good humbucker for harmonics and hard rock solos and a pair of single coils that will give me a very clean sound when not distorted and a nice vintage sound when in overdrive, I guess something like Eric Clapton's sound in layla. (does anyone know what his pickups are?)
I'd appreciate all your recommendations.
