I need help in finding the next step for making my strat a metal machine. i have a seymour duncan hot rails in the bridge and locking tuners. im not quite getting that signature chunk though that im looking for. Any ideas on the next step besides giving up and gettin another guitar?

Lulz were had but I'm sure you had to there.

I've got Hot Rails in my Strats and they "chunk" like motherf*ckers. If you're not getting it, you might want to try a hot Gibson-shaped humbucker like the Duncan Distortion or Invader, or an active pickup like the Duncan Blackouts.

Before the circuitboard got fried, i was using a b-52 at 212. tube amp with real good distortion. only really use a crybaby wah pedal wise.

You need a full sized humbucker if you want real chunk

This, I'm gonna guess your guitar is already routed for a humbucker in the bridge.
Stuff:
ESP/LTD EC-200QM (with SD Distortions)
1986 Charvel Model 4
2013 Ibanez RG7421WH

Amps
Marshall MS-2 microamp (a POS)
B-52 LG-100a head (Not bad)

Pedals
Digitech Grunge distortion

I get chunk out of my old MIM strat with stock pups. Are you sure this isn't just a technique problem?
