If I bought a fat strat and kept the single coil pickups but wanted a humbucker to sound like Metallica is there an emg or Seymour duncan(I heard they had a good metal sound) that would fit or would there be a problem with the active/inactive thing. I dont know a whole lot about this stuff so if there would be a problem what kind of pickup can you suggest?
Seymour Duncan JB. It's passive, but it does the job well.

My Rig ;D
Ibanez RG550XX 20th Anniversary
Epiphone Les Paul Standard
Crate V50-112 (Modded)
Roland Micro Cube
Lovepedal Purple Plexi 800
Lovepedal Pickle Vibe
Ibanez TS-9
Boss DD-3
Dunlop Crybaby
What amp and OD/distortion pedal have you got?

I would also go with a JB I've got one in my schecter and its very versatile.

+1, it's the regular answer.

Edit : Yup what amp do you have? You only have your guitar in your profile.

It even says "High Quality" in the title, so you KNOW it's quality

The jb is bright, and in a bright guitar like a fat strat, it will sound to bright. I would go with something like an sh-5, it's perfect for metal, and not to bright in strats.

And yeah what amp do you have, that defines your tone the most.

I dont have a very good amp but I might get my brothers old one which is a crate v-50 along with that I have a boss distortion/overdrive od-2. Thanks for the help guys!
