I have never changed pickups and so I am going to use the Squier Strat as a practice modding guitar. I tune it in CGCFAD and the sound is not really there. The distortion isn't very warm and its kind of muddy. I figure a switch to a humbucker could help that. Any suggestions for that. Also, does the position of the new pickup matter for my situation? And one last question. I see a lot of pickups that are sold with two pickups. As in my Schecter Omen 6, where they are bunched in twos. Does this mean you are getting two pickups for one, or do they act as one pickup. The Squier has three single pickups and I wanted to know if there is a difference between those two setups. It seems there are more pickups sold as the bunches of two than single.
it would be possible, might not be too easy though, should probably look at hotrails or somethin like that which are mini humbuckers that are stacked or something that fit in a single coil space
