so i decided that instead of getting a new guitar, for the time being i am getting a humbucker for the bridge of my sss mim strat. seeing as it is an sss strat, i will need someone to route and install the humbucker because i will most likely mess it up.

anyways, i was wondering what the best bridge humbucker is for the price. im looking in the $75-$200 price range.

i play mostly classic rock and early metal like ac dc, led zeppelin, and black sabbath, ozzy osbourne, guns n roses

a lot of SSS strats have plenty of room for a humbucker.

and what amp are you using now?

A SD Hotrail could pull all that off pretty easily, and doesn't require routing. Are you absolutely dead- set on a full- size humbucker?

im using a 65 watt crate. and this may be a noobish comment but i didnt know there were different sizes of humbuckers

Hotrails are basically single- coil sized humbuckers... they don't sound EXACTLY like humbuckers, but they get damn close.

hotrails thru a crate 65 isnt going to help you with ur tone problem.

i suggest u upgrade your amp, look into a new pedal, or AT THE VERY LEAST, use a full sized humbucker in the bridge. (which will probably fit)

You're not going to hear much of a difference. Good guitar with good pick-ups going though a **** amp will sound like ****.

so then next best might be to find a pedal that helps achieve the tone you want, and if that's not possible then get a full sized humbucker, if THAT's not possible then get a single sized pickup.

the last option is going to provide the least amount of tonal difference.
