Strats are great instruments - no question
But they're not designed for metal/screamo/core

You should look more at an Ibanez/ESP/Jackson/Schecter

They would be much more suited to you

and for the amount that a MIA strat costs you can get something dam nice!
The gear:

* Epiphone Les Paul Custom
* Schecter Jeff Loomis Signature 7 String
* Fender Squier P Bass
* Blackstar Stage HT-60
* Original Crybaby
* EHX Small Clone
* Boss DD-3

yer i know that.. but like those bands are as heavy as i go.. the majority of the stuff i play would be like more overdriven rather then like heavy distortion.. and i also love the beautiful cleans and bluesy sounds the strat gives..

its coil split not coil tap. u can add a coil split to ur guitar so if it is activated it can split ur humbucker so it will sound like a single coil.

heres an example of coil splitting

A HSS Strat can do it without a doubt. Because it's 'not designed for it' doesn't mean it can't do it. A Peugeot 106 isn't designed for racing, but people do it anyway.

If you really like the feel of it, then go ahead, and get it. I mean, if the humbucker isn't hot enough for you, you can change it quite easily. But really, the humbucker should do all those styles fine, and it's a nice guitar.

Give it a go in a store, on your amp if they have it there, or the most similar model, and see how it sounds best way to figure out if it's right or not.
