ok, so my plan has failed for new pickups, as some already know...im buying a Jay Turser Vintage Series Strat...stripping the body and repainting it my own design...and definatly upgrading the pups on it so it sounds half decent...anyway...my original plan was to buy DiMarzio Super Distortion, Fast Track 1 and a Chopper...but i went to a music store today and got them priced and for EACH one it was 160 bucks...so thats like 450 or something then plus tax it came up to over 500 bucks, just for 3 single coil pickups!...but i noticed a set of EMG pickups...not sure if it was a bucker or a single or how many was in the pack...but they were only 60 bucks...i dont remember what model, but could someone recommend some good EMG single coils?...and nothing off ebay or anything cause i cant order off the internet...but i play heavy metal, shred, rock, and sorta blues but not really...i dont play much acoustic so if they dont have a perfect clean sound then thats ok...but can someone recomend me something? because i have never tried EMG pups...or Semour Duncan's, wht are some good ones from them that suit my style?

If you play metal, you'll want a humbucker in the bridge at least.

he has a strat with 3 SC pickups so he cant get a humbucker! but check out the emg website www.emginc.com they have samples clips of all their pickups so u can give them a listen to see which ones you like best

They make stacked humbuckers these days just for that prupose

I've never heard EMG single-coils' cleans. I know the humbuckers' cleans are pretty sterile.
