  • Bridge humbucker recommendations

    Hey fellas, just nailed a good deal on a Mexican strat wit HSS config. Being the tweaker I am, I never settle for stock. Looking to replace the stock humbucker with something else. I play in a real grungy nirvana, deftones sounding 3 piece. I have a schecter that I installed a dimarzio tone zone in like ten years ago and I've always loved it. But wanna do some thing different wit the mexi strat. Nothing active, I hate batteries. How bout a sd distortion pick up? Evolution? Something kinda hot wit lots of mids response, low end not super important in my sound.

    I have a MIA lonestar strat that has a seymour duncan pearly gates HB in the bridge, and it can get positively nasty (in a good way).

      I do like ToneZones in strats but if you have 6 weeks or so, my BG Bucker dark is exceptional.  Far more articulate than the ToneZone but enough power to drive an amp.  It's kinda like a refined ToneZone, very classic rock sounding.

    Put your money somewhere else if you can't name any shortcomings of the current HB.

    Congrats on y our purchase! How does it look, any pics?

      Hhhmmm. I'll take a look at it. Funny story bout the pics... I can't figure out how to post pics wit an iPad. Any ideas? I know, it is terrible. In any case, she's a lil rough around the edges and def needs a lil tlc. The bridge and metal are rusted out kinda bad. Neck plate and tuners too. The electronics and neck are supposed to be solid though. We'll find out when I get it though, just won it and should be gettin it soon. It was worth the gamble. I'll tell you what I payed for it when I find out what it's " real" condition is. Haha.
