You like the humbucker tone on a strat? Hmm.

As we chat, my HSS strat is being converted to SSS in the shop.

Your preferences are odd though. Not too metal not too light? Kinda sounds single-coil-ish to me.

I think you should stick with the strat bucker, if your lookin for that rockish tone.
An symour duncan JB is really good, but that might be alittle too metal...

I'd agree on a Seymour Duncan. A buddy of mine also had a pickup put in his guitar from a made-to-order guy out western Canada; I'll get back to you with a link when he's around.

You've got no way of knowing what to replace it with until you actually own the guitar and have played it for a while through your amp.
Actually called Mark!

While you may prefer an SSS strat to an HSS strat, your post ("You like the humbucker tone on a strat? Hmm.") gives the impression that liking an HSS strat is unusual--which is certainly not the case. Without turning this thread into another HSS vs SSS battleground, I will say that the HSS pickup configuration is extremely popular because of its versatility, and I find nothing unusual about the TS liking the humbucker tone on a strat.

TS, as far as what pickup to purchase, however, take steven seagull's advice---wait until you've played the guitar for a while through your own amp and then decide what kind of pickup you'll need.

i wouldn't say his preferences are odd at all. look how many people consider EVH's tone the holy grail (or one of the holy grails, at least).

I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.
