No, I would expect them to be too long.

If you want a Stratocaster sound, buy a Fender Stratocaster.

Hi,

It should be reasonably easy to work out whether or not they'll fit, simply measure them and compare to the dimensions of a standard Strat Pickup .

I can't remember the exact dimensions off the top of my head, but I'll have them written down at my workshop. I'll check next time I'm out if needs be, but I imagine the info. will be readily available online.
The radius of the pickup ends is the same as the width, (ie it's a semi-circle).
Don't forget to measure the baseplate. Most Strat style single coils follow the same pattern where we can see them, but I've had to enlarge many a pickup cavity over the years to accomodate what lies beneath.

Hope that helps,

Matt.
