Hi UG, I've been thinking of purchasing a MiM Fender HSS Stratocaster a lot recently and I will most likely buy it now. But I have a question before I spend the 400 pounds, can the Strat fit humbuckers with covers? Because I want to buy a Seymour Duncan P-90 humbucker to replace the bridge humbucker.

Thanks, in advance

I would imagine so, there's no reason it wouldnt that I can think of, ask someone at a guitar store, they would probably know.

the people at my local guitar shop do not actually play guitar, just own the shop to make money. they also price their stock at rediculous prices and reccomend the wrong things

Yeah, that seems really steep for a MIM Strat. They're only 399.95 U.S. around here. The pickguard will accommodate humbuckers with metal covers.

Not quite double, but close. The pound isn't worth as much as it used to be... ****in' economic recession. >.>

I paid £250 for my MIM strat last year. I doubt they've gone up that much. I did a quick google search and you can get them for £249 (just searched "fender standard stratocaster" on shopping) Mosts MIMs have a swimming pool root so you could proberly put a real p90 in with the change of a pickguard, for a more authentic p90 sound.
