so, i got my very cool strat, but the pickups are extremely weak when it comes to metal and its relatives. so, i was wondering im you guys could recomend any high output pickup to go on the bridge? thinking maybe Duncan Hot Rails or Red Lace Sensor??

I've got a Hot Rails bridge and neck set in my lil Squier and talk about brutal. Perfect for metal, and surprisingly the bridge cleans up well on low volumes. To me they have more sustain and overtones than my EMG 81s in my Jackson. So yeah I'd definitely recommend the Hot Rails.

I have a red lace sensor in the bridge of my strat. It sounds fabulous for the music I play which ranges from pop to hard rock. The clean sound is clean unlike some high output pickups I've heard. Extremely versatile. However, I don't play metal so I can't say whether they would be suitable, But could probably do it, judging by how great it does everything else.

i did a customization on my friends squeir- lace red in mid and hot rails in bridge. that guitar came out insaely well and does everything from blues to metal. so yeah, either one works REALLY well

The blue is what I have in the neck, with red in the bridge. Great combo. I would advise for this AND keep the orginal pickup in the middle to provide authentic strat tones. I can't say in words how much I love the blue/neck and red/bridge lace sensors!
