K guyses. heres what i got. HSS MIM Strat.

What i play: everything, but mainly classic rock and just most lead rock guitar

Price range: under 50 bucks on ebay.

Ok i mainly play classic rock, and more mid gain average rock, not high gain metal stuff, and the humbucker works great for that stuff.

But even playing clean, or with any distortion, the neck pickup on my strat is so muddy and just crappy sounding.

Is there any single coils (sc sized humbucker maybe?) that can get me a real CLEAR smooth lead tone even with some distortion.

Any help guys?

Remember, under 50 on ebay

Ohh no I mean just the neck pickup. I want a real clear smooth neck pickup, even with a good bit of gain.

Hows something like the little '59?

the little 59 is good. Also check out Dimarzio YJM, Dimarzio HS-3, Dimarzio Air Norton S

The little '59 is pretty nice - it will give you a nice, smooth lead tone.

But again, what amp are you using?

Pretty nice little amp. Using the jcm800 model i get some ok classic rock tones.

Is the little 59 one that just is "soaring" and clear and smooth.

how about the ones ^he sugestted?

ebay you can get pickups for way less than $50 because one mans trash is another mans treasure. Try pawn shops too.
