well....slow down tuned metal riffage....I've seen some doom metal bands using P90s if that counts

otherwise Bareknuckle have a single coil with a downright insane amount of output for a single coil


your best bet is probably one of the singlecoil sized buckers....or just get a proper humbucker :-/

Most strats are pre-routed for humbuckers, check under the pickguard.

what strat? many have routings for humbuckers underneath the pickgaurd

If you're going to be doing metal stuff with it, then you'd probably want to look in to stacked singlecoils (for hum-cancelling) or possibly singlecoil-sized humbuckers. A regular singlecoil with a lot of gain will produce quite a lot of noise.

Ah, well in this case you should look at SD hot rails or the Dimarzio equivalents, they're just humbuckers in single coil form, hum canceling with the possibility of coil splitting.

Most strats should be routed for at least HSS under the pickguard, you'd just need to buy a new pickguard.

Its a squier. I don't want to do alot of alternate tunings with my dkmg because of the floyd rose.

Squiers generally have the block routing, which means you could even go as far as converting it to HHH if you wanted. So you could just get a new scratchplate and a full-sized humbucker. That way, your options are much greater.

you could add a push/pull pot or a mini switch and be able to have the bridge and middle wired in series, essentially a HB, but with the coils further apart
Get off this damn forum and play your damn guitar.

this is true, and it would also be hum-cancelling due to the reverse wind of the middle pickup. So it would be a kind of like having a massive humbucker, it should give a really ballsy tone as well.
I like analogue Solid State amps that make no effort to be "tube-like", and I'm proud of it...

...A little too proud, to be honest.
