Need a few pickup shouts for a sort of pickup that can be noiseless, powerful enough to just do hard rock without losing the cleans and strat sound i'd like for indie/jazz to go into my stratocaster. Cheers.

Lace also makes a TON of more conventional but killer strat pickups with various levels of noise suppression.

What amp are you running through? B/M/N??
"Your sound is in your hands as much as anything. It's the way you pick, and the way you hold the guitar, more than it is the amp or the guitar you use." -- Stevie Ray Vaughan

Is this an SSS strat?


Yes.

Not sure what those initials stand for but i'm running through a Laney VC30212 full valve. To the Lace guys, i'll check those out, i've heard about the lace gold but didn't really connect with them.

^ what strat do you have? i'm not saying you shouldn't swap the pickups, but if the pickups are decent already (they might not be, depending on the strat), I'd be tempted to swap speakers before pickups (unless you've already done that). or at least strongly consider upgrading both the speakers and the pickups if you have your heart set on new pickups as well

also, do yoi mainly use the neck and middle pickups for those cleaner tones? if you do, that makes things a lot easier since you can whack a hotter bridge pickup into the guitar for the heavier tones but use lower output neck and middle pickups for those lighter tones you need...

EDIT: also for heavier tones, using an od as a boost can help (again, assuming you're not already doing this). something in the tubescreamer or boss sd1 vein, which add mids, can help with strat-style pickups which are a bit thinner- and more scooped-sounding than humbuckers.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.
