I have a fender strat, but ive been wanting to get rid of my bridge pick up for something a bit more edgy.

I play a lot of punk and metal. As does my band.


I was thinking about a duncan sh8 invader bridge pick up, but does anyone have an opinion on these or have a suggestion on another?

what type of punk and metal? what's your budge? what's your amp? it's an MIM standard strat, right?

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.

i play in a punk/metal band as i stated in my first post.


what amp would you recommend?
#11
For punk and Metal? Try B-52 or Used Mesa amps. i cant really think of a lot of Punk tones, as i dont listen to that much of it, but those 2 should cover your Metal needs wonderfully.

Also, Invaders can get kind of muddy so i wouldn't recomend one of them. I Suggest a DiMarzio pickup like the Steves Special. As i said, dont know a lot of punk but it should do Metal nicely. ask Teh_Gir about Steves Special, and PAF Pros as he has both, and see what he says about them. very nice guy.

probably because they sound like ****.


but then again its not like one goes to a blink 182 or avenged sevenfold record for the holy grail of tone.

avenged sevenfold are halfway there theyve got the bogner ubershalls....but now what about using that eq!!!!

if you have $1000 for a new amp, i'd be thinking of a used mesa f-series, peavey 5150/6505 combo, kustom coupe, something like that.

i wouldn't get new pickups until you get the new amp...
