Ok, so I have a Squire Classic Vibe 60's Strat, which I like very much. However, the bridge pickup is a bit too honkey-tonk for me (I play Indie stuff, jam-rock, and some blues). So I was thinking of putting in one of those pickups that are humbuckers but fit in single-coil slots (stacked, I think they're called) so I could get a less honkey-tonk sound and a more ballsy sound.

Also, I was wondering if I could hookup the new pickup to one of the existing pots that I already have for the middle or bridge pickups so that I could change the tone of the bridge pickup.

So give me some suggestions. Thanks.

The resonant frequency of the clitoris is too low for the guitar players to take care of.

Before you go out spending money, did you do everything with EQing to solve your problem? Because I had no problem getting a ballsy sound on a CV Strat.

is the bridge hooked up to a tone now?

if not then do that before swapping it out.

Just add bass and gain, while switching to the neck pup.
