I have almost all the money I need for a lefty Fender Standard Strat, and i have a question or two.

First off, I play grunge-ish music. Stuff like Nirvana, The Vines, Smashing Pumpkins. I play it because I enjoy listening to it, and because I suck at guitar and its stuff I can actually play. Sad but true. I do also play some heavier stuff, like Seether and Crossfade and that, but just for fun.

Basically, the lefty strats only come with S/S/S pickup configuration. I was wondering if there would be any way to have a humbucker installed in the bridge. If so, how much would it cost?

If that is not possible, or would be expensive, my next option would be to get a Hot Rails or some other single-coil sized humbucker to put in the bridge. If I do that, would the music I play still be all right on the guitar?

Meh, excuse my noob-ness. I AM a fool that has nothing on all of your guys' limitless guitar information.
