hi i am going to mod my squire and i wont to put a new pickup in the bridge position i bin looking at hotrails and the mini jb and mini 59

which would be a good pickup to play hard rock and metal ???

I'd save the money and upgrade from squier before starting to invest in pickups. If you do decide to get a new pickup anyway, keep the old one so you can keep your decent pickup when you flog your squier.

^That's a completely different matter then, Jap Squiers are damn good guitars.

What amp do you have at the mo?

Fender Strat/Tokai LS80>few pedals>Orange Rocker 30

Don't listen to these guys, Squiers are fine for modding.

EDIT: Except R_H_C_P.

He da man.

Stay away from the Blue voodoo. They're not that great.

i'd recommend keeping the squier (japan or not) and throw a Seymour Duncan JB Jr. in it.
seriously, when it comes to electric guitars a new pickup will do enough for your sound as long as you don't mind the feel of the guitar. I've seen bands better than most that post on here playing with modded squier strats so i really wouldn't worry about it.

My Jap Squier Tele is a beast.

The SD Hot-rails is a nice choice, I have one in my highway one strat, i have an EMG Single coil active in my MIM Strat and just stocks in my '62 Strat and they all sound awesome, try out the single coil active EMGS

Yo wassup, I'm trying to expand my musical horizons if you know what I mean, so can anybody reccomend me some cool Juggalo jazz?

i have the seymour duncan one and its really nice, havent tried the dimarzio.

But i think everyone who says "hotrails" means the SD ones.

I personally think you should get the better amp first because its responsible for the majority o the sound. Seriously, a Squier can sound better in a great amp than a MIA Fender in a crap amp.

I put Hot Rails into my strat a month ago. They have been great in improving my tone and eliminating all of the extra buzz.
