I'm considering building a 1956 (year of my birth) Stratocaster. As far as I can tell the spec is maple neck, maple fingerboard, bridge truss rod adjustment, two tone sunburst on one or two piece alder body.

What are the most authentic pickups? Bare Knuckle Mother's Milk, Oil City 54 and Fender Vintage 59 seem close to the original Alnico V specification. But Bare Knuckle Apache (Alnico 3) and Iron Gear 6TS (Alnico 2) are also options.

Guidance for this build - especially on pickups - gratefully received.
