Hey, I'm totally re-doing my old Squire strat as a little project and I'm asking if telecaster bridge pick-ups would easily fit the strat with out me having to go to any extra work and if you could recommend me any single-coil sized humbuckers?

yeah im planning on doing the same thing to my Squier Bullet. It's just a Strat but without the whammy. Kind of weird, but i think it's cool. Tell me if you figure anything out, man.

A Seymour Duncan Hotrail fits right in, just a spot of soldering. And it makes your Strat sound quite powerful and hum-free, but somehow still Strat-esque. Genius pickup!

At a guess, the Tele bridge pickup is slightly bigger, so it would need some work doing.

Nope, but a Strat neck will fit a Tele.

Thanks guys.

Also, will a Tele neck fit a strat?
Sort of. The end of neck pocket on the Fender Strat is rounded. The end of the Tele neck is more square. You have to chisel out the corners of a Strat neck pocket to fit the Tele neck.

I have no idea whether or not the same is true for Squier necks.
