Hello all

It seems to me that a lot of UGers like strats. I like em too.

WITH HUMBUCKERS!!! ARGH!!!! AM I ****ING CRAZY, I hear you cry?

Well, no. I'm not. But people seem to have a problem with that. They're all like "NO! Don't get the HH strat! It takes all the stratitude out of it!"

I don't want stratitude. I like a strat's design, but I want more power under the hood, so what's wrong with some 'buckers in it?

Same for people who want tremolos on their les pauls. Maybe they like a les paul's tone and solid feel, but want to do divebombs n stuff aswell.

Why do people make such a fuss out of it?

There is nothing wrong with having buckers in a strat, just look at my ESP . Anyways, you could probably split the coils so that you could have single coils and humbucker pickups.

Nothing is wrong with that, i have a BC Rich Warlock with Single Coils.


J/K. BC Rich sucks, and so do strats with humbuckers. Get a guitar that's made for them.

That's what I wanted, actually.

Surprisingly, I heard the HH strat sounds very strat-like, even with full humbuckers on. What's the point in making an HH one, then, if it's gonna sound like any other?

If I ever got a strat, I'd want buckers in it.
It's just....idk, like, can you imagine a Les paul with S-S-S setup?
no, just...eurgh.

Strat humbuckers are a little twangier than most other humbuckers that you will find. If you want more of a fatter sound, then replace the pickups as it is quite easy to do.

I actually plan on getting a LP modded for me.

Floyd rose
HHH setup with a Fernandes Sustainer.
The Neck couldn't be split unfortunately but the mid and bridge can be & each one will have a switch to do it.

I don't think a lot of black people play guitar anymore.

A strat has an alder body, bolt on maple neck and a tremolo. That's practically the same as a lot of Ibanez or ESP guitars, whcih have buckers.

I'd personally get a superstrat if I wanted a strat design with buckers.
But those people who tell you it's bloody murder to put humbuckers in a strat are probably just silly traditionalists.

Altough I gotta admit I would be slightly alienated by a Les Paul with a S-S-S layout.

So would I actually.
But then, Les Pauls started out with p-90 single coils.

And in the 80's, with the rise of the superstrat, there were plenty with humbuckers, like Charvels. So I guess we're more used to them.
