As I'm gonna be modding my Strat, I'm having a hard time deciding which bridge pickup to get. The guitar is gonna be placed in Drop C, so I want something that can be good for rhythm and solos. I was thinking of one of these:

-Steve Morse Bridge
-DiMarzio Super 3
-DiMarzio D Sonic
-DiMarzio Crunch Lab
-SD Blackout
-DiMarzio D-Activator

But if you think you have something that'd suit me better, post it. Thanks.

I've got a Fender HM Strat that came stock with a Super 3 in the bridge, and I love the sound I get from it. Personally I'd go for that if you want a more GnR crunch.

blackout seems to be a decent choice except for your amp and the fact that your other pickups will also need to be actives. anyway what's your budget in case their are other recommendations.

If you can afford it, go for a Bareknuckle Nailbomb. I'm also using a DiMarzio Tone Zone in my Jackson's bridge right now, and I love its output. Keep in mind the D-Activator (or active pups in general) will generally have a higher output, so take that into consideration.

The D-Activator is passive.
I'd go a D-Sonic/Crunch Lab (they're pretty much the same, Crunch Lab is just a tweaked D-Sonic)

Yes I know, but it's meant to sound active, so I was just letting him know.

Up to $160 (for both bridge and neck, which in the neck I'm going PAF Pro).

I actually just picked up a strat today that has a Tone Zone in the bridge, and I'd definitely consider that as an option. It's got a HUGE sound to it and sounds pretty awesome for both rhythm and lead work.

Pretty much any of those would probably be good though. Depends what you're going for. If you want as much bite as possible from the pickup, you might want to go with something like the D-sonic. Ceramic magnets are good for that.

The Nailbombs will be very nice, but if the TS is not keen to drop that much money on pups... I'd suggest either the D Activator or the D Sonic... both of which are very versatile pups.

it's so cool to hate Gibson, even the federal Department of Justice hates them.
