Long Story Short, Im going to buy another strat and make it more suitable for my style. I love Ibanez's, but I really like the Fender I have. My question is, are all fender strat models routed for a neck humbucker? I would be going to an HH configuration for sure. I went looking for some HH models, but I can only find Jaguars. I know fender makes them in HH, but in case I come across a good deal thats not, what models should I look for? Im not looking to do any routing myself. So be honest if this is not likely going to happen.

My MIM Fender Strat would fit a Humbucker in there. They dont have individual pickup routing but one big body cavity. A Humbucker would fit in any position.

No, MIMs are routed to have a HSS pickup thing. You could put a humbucker in the neck, but you'd have to either cut a bit out of the body, or more easily put a rails or some other single coil sized humbucker.

That would be a very good option. I hadn't thought of that. A hot rails would be great. But I'm still wanting to get away from the 3 pickup thing. Is there a strat pickguard available in just an HS configuration? I havent seen one, but then again I havent looked.

I don't know if they have one but it couldn't be that hard to make one

EDIT: buy one of these and cut a hole for the single coil

Yeah I havent been able to find one in the H-S configuration. I appreciate your guys' help. I guess the best option would be to try to find a second hand HH strat and take it from there.
