Hi All.

New to this forum so be nice.

I'm on a hunt.
Trying to find a guitar with a specific set of hardware.

I'm searching for a solid bodied guitar with a humbucker at the bridge, no middle pickup, and a single coil at the neck.
Rosewood/ebony fretboard.
And most importantly a gibson style tune-o-matic bridge. Or similar style solid bridge

I'm not a fan of the super-strat style body, preferring more a classic/hybrid tele shape body or similar.

The only guitar I seem to be able to find out there which is reasonably easy to buy is the Cort/Manson Matt Bellemy signature guitars.
Which I do like and may not be far from buying one of the Cort MBC1 guitars.

But before I do I was wondering if anyone has or knows a guitar matching these specs?

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Can't think of any off the top of my head, but there are adapters that will let you mount a strat-style single coil in a humbucker mounting ring. That opens up an endless number of options for you.

Depending on what kind of single coil sound you want, there are also humbucker-shaped P90s. Another compromise is a humbucker with single/parallel/series switching. I have this on one guitar, using SD Jazz, I like it for a single coil-like sound.

Caparison makes a fixed bridge version of the Horus now. Costs a lot more than the MBC and it's a superstrat, though.

There's also the Ibanez FR365. Tele-esque.

You could also get a classic Tele and swap the bridge pickup for something like a Seymour Duncan Hot Rails. Or you could look into the P-Rails for the neck position of any HH guitar. Not sure how it works in practice, though.

Coil splitting might be an option as well, although it won't give the same result as an actual single coil pickup.

P90s are a kind of singlecoil. There are several guitars out there with a bridge HB and a neck- here's one.

A bit more upscale and feature-rich option from Fret-King:

The Dean Zelinsky Private Label Dellatera can be ordered with those specs:

As can the Carvin/Kiesel T60:

I'm sure there's a similar option available through Agile.

I believe Seymour Duncan offers a similar setup at Custom Shop level, or for a more reasonable price they have the Stag Mag which is a pair of rod magnet singlecoils in a humbucker setup, so you can split it into what's essentially a Strat pickup.
