    I ended up getting the Pure Vintage '65 set. I just have yet to get the time to wire it up. I liked how they sounded in a strat at the local shop. I got the pots, .22uf caps, 5 way switch, and wire. Just need the time. Though finding a good vintage wiring schematic would be wise too.

    One thing I love about my local shop. He's a Peavy dealer and always has the same or similar amp to mine in stock. Makes checking out pickups a breeze.

    Knowing me, I wont let a good pick guard go to waste. I'll probably make a HSS config with the parts left over.

    Sweet!
    Still got the itch to try those PV 65s. Here's a decent schematic:

    Really pretty easy!

    I finally got it wired up. Much, Much, Much better sound and overall improvement. The cloth wire is a PITA, but meh. For some reason I decided at the last minute to use a .015uf cap. I like the results. Bright, and not muddy.

    My main Strat has Hot Noiseless in the neck & mid positions and a SD JB Jr. in the bridge and the bottom tone control wired to the bridge.

    Good thread guys. This has been helpful for me. I always said I hate Strats... and then I listen to Jimi or Gilmour.
    So I too needed some expert opinions.
    I will say that I still hate Strat bridge pup.
