I have a fender stratocaster (HSS) and i was thinking of changing the 'bucker on it to something a little more bassy and 'ballsy'. Obviously i dont want to sacrifice that classic fender tone too much, but i feel a change is needed. I play rock mostly, with the odd metal song here and there (but nothing too brutal, 'tallica type stuff usually). I have a picture of the guitar on my page for those who are interested.

I have been looking around at the Seymour Duncans, but i cant really go by much from reviews on this website as (for the invader in particular) the reviews will say its great; the comments will say its a pile of dog shit. On a side not, i need to be able to get it in white.

What can you guys suggest/recommend?

Since you are on that side of the pond, I'd definitely suggest taking a look at Swineshead pickups.

I'm in the exact same position here (swapping bridge on strat for something a little more ballsy), and I have decided on a Dimarzio Super distortion. Take a look at that if you can.

mm...Warthog?..I would think it would give you more clarity compared to the Venom because of the Alnico Magnet in the Warthog compared to the Ceramic in the Venom, but I could be wrong.
