how important are the country and blues for bridge pick up usage?

or will you use middle and neck for the country and blues?

also if you are going with lace a few guys on here have recently posted about the lace alumnitone humbuckers with positive regard.

OK, then here is my revised list:

SD: '59s

The Creamery: '57s

Lace: Alumitone*

Railhammer: HyperVintage

Tesla: OPUS-1

Vintage Vibe: H430-42 SW






* something I have found is that if you contact a company about "which kind of pickup" that they make goes well with another pickup they make, they will give you solid answers. So you might consider asking Lace about which HBs they make that would partner well with the Sensor Golds.

Will do. But I'm thinking maybe the 59s after taking a look at them the samples sound like what I'm looking for

For the bridge position I'd say Di Marzio The Breed.

The ultimate solution would be a humbucker mentioned earlier that has the proper wound direction and magnet polarity of the stock strat pickup and then wire it so only the single coil of the bridge humbucker can be accessed when you are in "strat mode" positions of a super switch and then works as a humbucker when it is the only pickup being used.

I haven't tried marrying two stock strat pickups to work as a humbucker that can be split but I'll bet it works and that someone else has thought of it and offers a product.

the SD 59 is probably my favorite pickup and it's very versatile

I like the amp idea better


but srsly I had a Duncan Custom Custom TB11 in my Strat and it was a great fit. That and my '59 are now in my Schecter C1+ but those are the two I will recommend.

The first pickup that came in to my mind was the SD 59, seems everyone else recommends it too.
You could go to a local store and try to see if there are any strat or similar guitars with that pickup in it and try it out first.

But your beat bet would be to save money, and just get a new amp.

You'll wanna make sure you put the Humbucker in the guitar.

If you out it on the guitar you'll have some issues.

Good luck!
