Hello I've got a nice 80s fender strat with HSS config (with coil tap on bridge hum) and a kahler locking trem and nut (kind of resembles a floyd rose)

I want to replace the bridge pickup with something more edgy for modern hard rock and metal. (drop tunings aswell)

I was looking at the seymour duncan sh-4 jb but ofcourse i am open to other suggestions.

my main question is, is there anything special i need to do when replacing the pickup so that the coil tap still works?


oh and i have a peavey classic 30 if that makes a difference in what pickups i should consider

"hold on guys my phone's dying."
"Ok we're good."
You have to solder it exactly like the old one was and the coil split will still work.
The sh-4 might sound a bit to thin and trebly in a strat, especially when you'll play detuned metal. Take the sh-6(distortion) for straight metal sound or the sh-5(custom) if you want something in between the both...
