Hey guys, I recently purchased a Hello Kitty Squier Strat for fun and I actually want to put it to use. I'm going to use it for my band which plays a lot of trash and I want to know some good bridge pickups that are somewhat versatile, but mainly focus on speed and trash metal. I was thinking of the SD JB and a few others but I cant seem to decide so I thought I'd let you guys. Thanks.

Active EMG's will make it sound like a great metal guitar regardless of the wood and other stuff that might not be so good.

So I would say go with that. There was thread a while back where someone did that to a Hello Kitty guitar and it sounded great for metal.

It's just that, my Schecter Hellraiser already has EMG's and I want something different.

EMG 81 and 85 I'd say. Wait, is it HH?

Hello Kitty Strat is just H, 1 pickup. The most obvious thing to do is put an EMG in it, since that's what all metal guys do lol. Personally, if you want something different, put something stupid in it like an Invader or something. You'll be using it for laughs anyway.

It's a Hello Kitty strat. You can't not put EMG's in it. It's against the rules to buy a HK strat and not put EMG's in it.

i would recommend replacing the neck at some point in time too, if you want something that doesnt feel like a piece of shyte when you play it. I mean the body and the wood its made of wont matter AS MUCH if you replace the neck and the pickups. I know there are a few sites that make necks that fit certain guitars, in case you want a replacement

BKP Warpig would be a good start. Maybe put a little circuit in it if its not loud enough?

I'm thinking GFS. this maybe? http://store.guitarfetish.com/gfsporacrpok5.html That way you get a good high-output bucker that sounds pretty sweet, and you're not spending as much as the whole dang guitar for one pickup.

Well, technically it could be done, but only in the same way that you could change a cat into a hamburger. It's an unpleasant process, and nobody is happy with the result.

If you want to be actually funny and not just a terrible trend*****, keep it stock. The stock Squier pickup can handle whatever, it's as generic a pickup as you can possibly get - mid-wound Alnico V. If you have an amp that's suitable for thrash and you actually know how to use the amp's EQ section, that guitar can play thrash as it is.

Though a good substitute for the hilarity of using it stock would be to use a SD Dimebucker along with an EMG afterburner switch.
Yes, I know everything. No, I can't play worth a damn.

The Dimebucker would be funnier than an XL-500 because of how shiny it is lol.

Yeah I remember a thread like this ages ago where the fellah showed exactly how he customised it - new pickup - pickguard etc.

Some really br00tal high out put pups. Go for EMGs. They sound the same in every axe, and that's really nifty when you put them in a lower range model. If you're more for passives, I'd go for the bareknuckle Warpigs.
#22
GFS has some pups that are supposed to be made for metal, and I've heard great things about them. I was thinking of getting one of those for a while just for shits n' giggles.
Good luck TS.
