Vintage Strat pickups from the 1950’s and 1960’s are considered the Best Strat Pickups by most players. A lot of people say the 1954 Stratocaster is the year with the best sounding pickups.
Virgil Arlo makes one type of Strat pickup called the 1954 Model. It’s not directly based on the 1954 but Professional Touring and Sessions players have said the Virgil Arlo Strat Pickup Set is as good or even better than the original Strat pickups from the 1950’s. Anyone that has played them will likely tell you that the Best Stratocaster Pickups are the 1954 Model made by Virgil Arlo.
