I'm trying to mod by Les Paul Special II to sound like a good Strat, I want to put '57/'62 pickups for a vintage strat sound, how would I put single coils in a Les Paul?

Pickup's alone will not make ales paul sound like a strat. Scale length, body wood, hardware, electronics etc all contribute to tone. Your best bet is to sell the les paul and buy a strat...

IMO its not going to happen...if you want a strat sound, get a strat

adding some coil taps and such maybe or series/parallel switches would probably help a bit

or maybe something like http://www.swinesheadpickups.co.uk/amp.shtml
thats 2 regular singlecoils next to each other so it works like a humbucker...but when you split its like a true single coil
I think the Lace Sensor humbuckers are also like that

Well, if I put in good Gibson pickups, would it manage a good surf/rock/blues sound? And BTW, what would it sound like w/ '57/'62 pickups, would it be good for the music I just listed?
