Edge Strat Pickups

Im investing in new strat pickups, but Im not sure what. I'm going for what Edge had in his early 70's B&B Strat...so that would obviosuly point to vintage 70's strat pickups, but those are kinda expensiveeeeee how good are the fender 70's reissue pickups compared to it? or is there a different brand like seymour duncan that makes better vintage reissue pickups? Also the noiseless pickups look good... Thanks!

THE FOLLOWING INFO from U2 RECORDING Yahoo Group:


Question: What are good Stratocaster replacement pickups:

Answers:

Lyle: Fender 57/62 set is a very nice sounding set of pickups that will deliver Edge tones at a reasonable price.

Kinman’s, but they are very expensive (as well as being the only noiseless pickups worth considering in a Strat).

Again, if you can afford Kinmans, Fralins, Lollars, etc, these are all great. But from the perspective of a beginner/intermediate player wanting to get closer to Edge's tones without breaking the bank, the Fender 57/62 set is IMO the best basic option.

The CS 69s, the Duncans, the Duncan Antiquities, the Fender 57/62s, or
Fralin Vintages would all be good choices.

Mick: Kinman Woodstocks.
