Yo, I got a Fender Fat Strat and Im not a fan of the stock humbucker. I was looking for a good humbucker and they always seemed to reappear. My local guitar shops dont have a guitar installed with them (or theyre all idiots because it sure ****ing looked like there were), so i cant try them personally before buying them.
I got a VOX AD50 (i know, I shoulda gone all tube, i regret it everyday...) and Im a HUGE fan of Frusciante if that means anything.
ANy input = sweet.

doesnt fruscante use S/S/S Strats?
It will be kind of hard to get his sound with HB's because you have more mid and less treble, and more crunch than a Single coil has.

Burst buckers are good but I prefer the Seymour Duncan '59 or JB to the BB's.
(Im a little tired right now so my input might be skewed, but still check them pups out.)

True, I cannot replicate his tone using a HB, but a similar warm tone would be what id prefer.
Ill check out the '59 and the JB

yeah burstbuckers are nice but most of frusciantes guitars are single coil only strats. And i prefer the burstbuckers over seymour duncans but thats just my personal preference.

Also on a semi-unrelated note, can you buy burst bucker covers for any other HB, because the look is just so ****ing cool
#6
the covers are just regular pickup covers that you can order from SD (or any other pup manufacturer).
