 Alnico magnets are the Vintage tone monsters (SRV) if wound properly. Most lower end strats come with ceramic magnet pickups which are tinny/muddy sounding to me. The default wiring of most Strats makes it so that there is no tone knob for the bridge pickup - only for the middle and neck pickup. Alternate tone wiring with 2 caps give you tone adjustment on bridge pickup. Soldering caps is easy as long as you keep the heat away when soldering. I use alligator clips on upper cap. legs when soldering to keep heat away. Or you can choose to leave wiring as is and just change pickups. These pickups are a major upgrade for any strat.
