S/S/H. I have a fat Strat and I think having a humbucker is awesome on it.

To me, a Strat is made for single coils, not humbuckers.
Fender American Deluxe V-Neck Strat
Laguna LG300CE Acoustic Electric

SSH only if it had a coil tap.

So it could be made to sound like a SSS at the pull of a knob!

That full hummer sound gives such a warm distortion but for cleans nothing beats single coils!

get some symour duncans or dimarzio single coils, therye better, you can also get single coil emg's if you wwant to go bigger
#17
Strats were only made for single coils, if it has humbuckers I don't consider it a strat.

S/S/S all the way especially if they are DiMarzio Fast-Tracks
#18
SSS I've played nothing but guitars with humbuckers, and I prefer the sound of single coils. Especially with Fender Texas Specials.

SSS. If I want humbuckers I'll play a les paul. Besides, who wants a strat without the single at the bridge?
#20
SSS. I really don't think humbuckers belong on a Strat.

Haha, some of youse guys won't appreciate this.

I'm going to take a USA Strat (which is mine for pretttty much free), put a DiMarzio Super Distortion 3 in the bridge, DiMarzio VirtuAL 2 in the middle, and a DiMarzio Air Norton in the neck.

That's HSH for ya.

And if that's not enough, I'm going to make it Master Vol/Master Tone! I'm not sure what to do with the other knob... I don't want a black ice mod or anything, I might jsut cover it up... or hell maybe just stick with v/t/t.
haha

How close to a humbucker does it sound if you select both the bridge and middle pickup at the same time? Can it handle hard rock and some reasonable heavy distortion?

American Stratocaster + Blues Junior

Well if one pickups has reversed polarity it will act as a humbucker.

^ I know. But will it actually sound like a humbucker?

Also, do most Fender SSS Strats have reversed polarity on the middle pickup? Is that a standard feature now or is it only available on some models?

I think it's a standard feature (mine has 'em) but they don't sound a thing like real humbuckers.

Mine doesn't have it; but I have a 50's Classic, so leaving that feature out makes it more historically accurate (but they still leave the 5-way switch in).
