Not sure if this belongs here or not, but I'm attempting to make the Mami strat but I can't find out what she's using. It's an American Standard but the pickups in those only come as white so I don't think they are stock.

She actually uses a Standard Stratocaster HSS, which has humbucker pickups.

We do have a thread on here relating to MAMI's gear that does have a bit more info on her Strat. Happy

Also, we do have threads from people on here who have put together and made their own MAMI Strats, which could be helpful:

I think we can only make a calculated guess. For the single coil pups, plastic pickup covers are easily changed to black, hence it's likely she still has the stock Fender single coil pickups.

The humbucking pup on the other hand is likely a replacement as you cannot change the bobbin to another colour ([You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]). Your best bet is to choose a brand of your choice that's nearest to a Fender, or get a Fender humbucker - the only black one on the current 2014 catalog is the Twin Head Modern ([You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]) but it may be a bit 'metal'.

My ESP/LTD MAMIcaster has the Seymour Duncan JB on it. It's the replacement of choice for a Les Paul and it sounds great on a Strat body. It is also the stock bridge HB pup on my ESP Horizon. It's not that high end like the Invader but hotter than a classic 59. I have written a bit on my guitar here: [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Good luck!

Since drop in replacement pick guard with pre-wired pickups set for Strat is readily available, I think the guy who did the custom mod for Mami just go with that.
Pretty sure the bridge humbucker is not a Fender's original. It's kind of high output.
