I've got a set of Fender CS 69's and they nail the blues and classic rock sound for me. I replaced the bridge with a SD SSL-5 tho, to get the Gilmour power lead sound. But the CS 69's are warm, articulate, and full of harmonic overtones especially when played on a clean setting. They just ring out nicely when strummed with medium touch. I know that's a bunch of pickup cliche's but I can't describe them any better. I picked up a used (mint) set for $100. This is, of course, if price is not a concern.
