Is it possible to route my strat to hold 2 humbuckers instead of the S-S-S setup I have now? I saw Jimmy Herring playing a strat with 2 humbuckers and was intrigued. I love the feel of a strat but alot of my favorite tones are from humbucking guitars. How expensive would it be?

what kind of strat is it?

the lower-quality squiers usually have either one big route, or are routed for HSH/HSS, and all you'd need is a new pickguard

edit: I didnt look at your sig..

..I think the strat you have is just routed for SSS, but it really wouldnt be too hard to route for 2 humbuckers. again, you'd just need a new pickguard, and you'd need (or have access to) a router

check my edit.

but yeah, if you just take off the pickguard you'll see how its routed. although I dont thinkn it's routed for HSH or with a swimming pool..

were you thinking of doing it yourself, or getting it done at a shop?

Heh, in your sig, the word "Boss" is right under "Tweed". I couldn't help but think of Boss Tweed.

You would have learned about him in US History, had you been an American, haha. He greeted immigrants, found them places to live, etc. all to swing the popular vote in the favor of his party.

I suppose if you learned how to solder, or got a quick connector for the output wire to the jack, you could switch pickgaurds.

That'd be pretty sweet, have someone switch your pickguard halfway through a set... lol. complete pickup swap halfway through the show!

for the jack and the bridge ground, if you forgot that you would have a truely, and quite literally noiseless strat

Many get a set of stacked humbuckers and slap 'em in, easier than routing out the cavity
