So my first guitar i got was a fender strat. but i really dont like how it sounds compared to my SG, and schecter. So what are some good affordable (under 150 bucks) pickups for my strat? i dont think i need all three. maybe just the bridge pickup.

What kind of tones are you after?
What amp and effects do you play through?
What model is the guitar?
Why have you isolated the neck pickup?

GFS pickups are really nice and are <1/2 of your budget for an entire set. In the USA

Guitar Heads pickups are decent and cheap

Iron Gear pickups are nice if your in Europe.

i already stated my guitar. its a fender strat
i have a peavy 30 amp, i use whatever effects i need for a particular song
sorry i meant the bridge pickup, and that is because i play alot of punk songs and songs that require the bridge more than neck

well if you're only replacing the one pickup $150 will get you pretty much whatever you want. If you're into punk I might suggest a Seymour Duncan Invader if you have a humbucker in the bridge. If it's a single coil maybe a Seymour Duncan Hot rails.

A fender strat is a pretty versatile guitar, so knowing what kind of tone you want is important.

You said you play punk, have you checked out the Seymour Duncan Blackouts? Emg 81s?


If you can only have single coil pick ups, you're going to need a single stack.
