So I've got my new strat, and I'm putting in a high output hum cancelling pup in the bridge, thinkin an SD Hot Rails, JB Jr., etc.

That, or a set of Fender Hot noiseless pups, or some Samarium Cobalt Noiseless pups.

Now please GG&A, you're probably sick of me, but I just need some last minute pup suggestions to sort through before my latest project is over with. I play mostly punk/alternative/classic-rock, but also play some heavier stuff, metal, blues and jazz. The first three would be the bases that need to be covered, but the others would just be bonus prizes.

GO!

high output true singles - bkp sinner, bkp trilogy
high output stacked singles - tom anderson, suhr
those are hands down the best.

Based on what? I'm assuming you have experience with these pups?

Can you tell me why they shine over the more well known SD pups?

they sound richer and harmonically smoother.

in terms of true single coils. there are very few builders making a 23k true single. the sinner and the trilogy both have more bite then any other true single coil i've tried and they are almost as quite as buckers.

I don't believe that andersons and suhrs are entirely handwound anymore but they just sound really really good. The stacked andersons I have sound more like single coils when split then any of the sd/dimarzio pickups I've tried.

23K? Does that many windings cut the top end much? Don't get me wrong, I actually like the top end cut you get with overwound pups. That sounds like a lot of wire though.

it sounds great. it's not like how you would think a hot hot pickup would sound either.

I've got a pair of anderson tele pickups, the bkp pile driver tele pickups which are around 13k neck 16 bridge

and some anderson stacked singles at like 11k. they don't much fuller then any of the stock pickups I played at the store.

of topic slightly but...thoughts on the piledriver?

also i concur with the sinner rec for overwound singles, they sound fantastic in a friends strat. May want to go for a sinner bridge with irish tour neck and middle?
sinners are VERY hot so unless metal is all you play i'd recommend some less hot ones in the neck and middle for dem sweet straty cleans
