I just got a new SX furrian (telecaster clone). I've always liked the way they looked. It's a nice guitar, but I mostly play metal. The bridge pickup obviously needs to be replaced for that reason with a higher output humbucker. Vintage stock looks are important and I saw this pickup: http://www.guitarfetish.com/Neovin-Power-Rock-Overwound-Noiseless-Bridge-Pickup-for-Telecaster_p_545.html

would it allow high gain modern sounds? I'm going to keep the neck pickup stock.

YES! I have this pickup in my Esquire. It's the most versatile single-coil (sort of) pickup I've ever used. It gets you the strereotypical Tele twang, but it really shines with a punchy overdrive tone. I haven't really used it for death metal or anything, but System of a Down, P.O.D.? Nailed that.

By high-gain I don't mean stupid stuff. I just mean styles like Motley Crue or Iron Maiden

That sounds great! It doesn't have to get too brutal, I have two other guitars one with an EKG 81 in the bridge, one with a guitarheads active in the bridge. So I was going to just use this guitar for Eb tuning.

That dimarzio looks nice but it's twice the price, and doesn't retain the vintage looks. Any other suggestions?

a little off tpoic, but how is the sx? what wood is it made of? does it hold its tuning? hows the neck? ive always contemplating buying one.

it's good for the money for sure. Not sure what it's made of, but it's well made. The neck needs adjustment I just got it and it has a little bit of buzzing but that should be fixable. I'll take some photos when I get a chance.

I've always wanted to try one too. The Agiles I've bought from rondo have always surpassed what I was expecting out of them.
