Maybe you should raise you pickups. Or get new ones. I don't know how much help a rosewood fretboard would do...

Cool. Good bands. I was listening to Disraeli Gears yesterday.
So you wanna keep it SSS? Some Strats have humbuckers in the bridge. That'll definitely fatten up your tone. I like the sparkle of single coils, though. That sweet top end is something that humbuckers just don't have.

Here's a good SSS combo:
Neck - Seymour Duncan SSL-2 - Flat pole pieces, this'll give that glassy, bell-like tone that single coils are known for. Perfect for blue and blues-rock.
Middle - Seymour Duncan SSL-2 - ...
Bridge - Seymour Duncan SSL-6 Custom Flat - Higher output single coil. More sustain, cuts right through the mix. Cleans up once ya roll down the volume a bit.

Check out Texas Special or Tex-Mex pups. Thicker sound than standard Strat pickups.
