Hey all, I just picked up a MIM Strat (white) at GC yesterday on sale for $300, so I'm going to mod it a little bit.

It's a SSS model, which I like. Now, I want to get a more crunchy tone out of it, like Maiden and what not. What single coil pups do you guys recommend? Preferably one I can just stick in the bridge and not have to buy a whole set.

^ either of those. super distortion or the hot rails. i'm a dimarzio guy myself, and the super distortion has been my favorite pickup for a long long time! they're awesome.

How distorted are they? Like, Maiden distortion or even crunchier than that?

Don't forget a lot will depend on how the amp responds to the pickup...they kinda work hand and hand...

But I think I know what you mean...it should get you to a maiden type tone

With that amp, it doesn't really matter what pickups you have.


Well gee, it's almost like I expected that. First off, as it seems you just fell off the bandwagon, shut the hell up. Secondly, that's my practice amp, I have a JCM2000 to gig with.

JB Jr. and Hot Rails. That's what they use at least.
