I'm goin to change my bridge pup from a single coil to a humbucker, for my squier.

So I hav 2 pup in mind:

-SD Hot Rail
-Dimarzio Super Distortion S

I have wide interest and will play any song from blues to heavy rock and metals.

Which pup is more suitable for me?

( I love my 11year old Made in Korea Squier and not gonna replace it. )

Oh btw, how to check my squier details? I couldn't check it in squierguitars.com.

Thanks.

I did this, but I just chopped up my pickguard to fit a humbucker.





Anyway, between those 2, I would go for the Dimarzio.

Wow, nice~

The humbuckers I considered are actually single coil sized.
Anyway, thanks for ur opinions.

Anymore SD HB to recommend??

Just not the Hot Rails. If you want a SD, I'd go with a Lil '59, honestly. More versatile, more clarity.

^Is that a Fender-style HB? Those always looked neat to me, haha.


Fender style?

Yeah. The pole piece orientation.

Normal covered HBs are like...

Yours looks like:

Sorry, too lazy to google an actual one.

Threadstarter, see if you can take your pickguard off and see if you can fit a normal sized humbucker there. If so, let me know, I'll have some ideas.

Oh, nope.

It's a regular humbucker, but the pole pieces and screws were painted black, and the paint has just scratched off 3 screws and 3 pole pieces.

Alrighty.

I play blues and hard rock myself, and an excellent humbucker for them is the SH-11 Custom Custom. It cleans up real well, in case you want some smoother blues tones, and will match the bright wood of your Strat nicely. It's also aggressive enough for hard rock and metal.
There's also the SH-5 Duncan Custom, but it doesn't clean up as well as the SH-11.

OK thnx a lot.
