I was thinking Seymour Duncan Trembucker like on the ESP (japan) Horizon III.

Is it a bad idea? I started realizing I'll probably never buy a Fender amp to take advantage of my strat single coils. I love the sound, but blues and so on isn't my genre.

the Horizon III has Seymour Duncan TB-4 JB. it's pretty versatile, imo.

Fernandes Telecaster (Twang King/stock bridge pickup)
Blackstar HT-20 (Scumback 55 speaker/ Tung Sol tubes)
