I am about to by my first top-end guitar and get it done up profesionally. I havent ever changed the pickups in a guitar but i know which ones i want. My question is simply how would i install a SSH pickup pattern when the stock pickups are SSS?

either
a) route it out so you can fit a humbucker in there or
b) get one of those pickups that is the size of a single coil but is like a humbucker, i think seymour duncan do them... (hotrails is it?)

Yes, you would have to route it to make it fit, but some guitars have cavities large enough for humbuckers(ex. Strat).

Depends on the model, just remove you pickguard and check to see if the holes are big enough.

EDIT-If you're getting a strat, why don't you get a HSS Strat, they cost the same and they already have the cavity for the humbucker.

Oh, well I'd ask if the Strat already has a cavity big enough for the humbucker.
