    Last week I finally settled on a good Stratocaster! After weeks of shopping around and multiple trips to guitar stores, I came across this used 2017 Fender Custom Shop Journeyman Strat with the Poblano Texas pickups at N'Stuff Music in Pittsburgh. Over the last few years I've played a lot of Strats but really didn't find anything special. There was a PRS Silver Sky at one point that I really liked but didn't have the money for at the time. Since then I've played a few of those and didn't gel with any of them. This guitar was by far the best in the store, and it definitely helped that it was used and not the full $4,000. I've broken it in on a few gigs since buying it and I'm really digging it.

    What are Poblano pick-ups like? I've never heard of that set of pick-ups.

    The Poblano pickups are slightly overwound, pretty high output similar to what you might expect "Texas voiced" strat pickups to be like. I've found them to be really dynamic, in a similar way to the PRS 57/08 PAF-style pickups in my McCarty.
