Yeah lol...So, I've got a Fat Strat, I play surf & grunge music (grunge as in more like Nirvana meets the Sex Pistols, not Alice In Chains "metal" stuff) & I need help finding some pickups.

I've already got a JB in the bridge and I really like it because it's bright, but not too bright. I love having my cleans for that surf/pop sound, but I also need the pickups to take distortion well (so I can get my grunge/punk sound). Anyway, any help you guys have would be greatly appreciated. If you have questions, go ahead and ask...

Which amplifier will you be running these through?

When I think Surf I think Twangy with the Reverb dimed, so really what's wrong with what you have now?

A "tubescreamer" is a person paid by a guitarist to stand behind the amp and scream at the tubes. This terrifies the tubes into overdriving and delivers a thick, harmonic-rich tone.

a Fender Deville

I need 2 other single coil pickups because the ones i have now are just stock.

what you need is a fuzz pedal and mix it with the amp distortion or distortion pedal .. the Duncan JB is just fine for that . your pickup isnt the problem . neither is the guitar .

Switching pickup wont bring fuzz to your sound and wont sound more Nirvana .

Tube amp with a mix of distortion and fuzz = grunge .

Your guitar is fine and so is your fender deville . get a Big muff pedal , blast it into the deville

and get a good distortion pedal ( please not a Boss DS2 turbo disortion .. thats not a good pedal even if kurt used one . its a tone sucker and isnt worth shit IMO ) .

my recommendation .. MI audio crunch box for distortion + big muff pi with tone wicker for fuzz . you should be set for grunge .
