hey, i got my fendre MIM strat SSS a couple days ago and i want to change the factory pickups. i play with a lot of distortion most the time, like avengedsevenfold, black sabbath, metallica bands like that. i dont know anything about pickups so can i have some suggestions as to what pickups i should get.
thanks

if thats the kind of music you play why would you get a strat? with 3 single coils???

humbucker no idea which one though

A Hot Rail pup maybe. I know that's perfect for Maiden, cause that's actually what they use. I think that might be as good as you're gonna get with an SSS Strat. For super heavy metal, you need an HSS Strat, but I think the Hot Rail Pickup should give you enough oomph.

the reason i got the strat is because its versatile as far as i know, i also play a lot classic rock and i was on a budget i got it used for 300 and im playing on a crap amp.... 10 watt i need to get a new amp
