    I've heard good things from users of 60's style vintage wound pickups for funk, such as the ones fender produce, or the ones you can get from almost any custom pickup shop.

    You also may want to look into buying a dictionary.

    If you buy anything active(especially EMG), make sure you have a preamp to use along with your amp head. Even if you do go through "low gain", it will still eat up your speaker, in a short amount of time.

    I think it's a bad idea to mod your MIM Fender with anything but Fender(I'm a Fender purist). It'll devalue in the long run, plus another companie's pickup will only make it less Fender.
