  • Best Bridge Pickup(Humbucker) For Strat

    Im looking for a good all around humbucker that is the most versatile to do all kinds of rock.

    Im thinking a Custom 5, Pearly Gates, or JB.

    Any suggestions?

    Those would work.

    I would go for a JB or a DiMarzio Super Distortion.

      I think the JB sounds great in my Strat

        i went with JB's in two of my strats with great results. the split sound of a JB is very decent, at least as good as most stock singles, anyway.

          Checkout my line of handwound pickups.
          I'd suggest either the PUFs or BG Dark.

            Consider a DiMarzio PAF, it comes in different versions according to the tone and output you are looking for your Strat, see here

              The JB in my Strat is OK---it's VERY hot, and it overpowers the other pickups. When playing at gig volumes, I can set my guitar volume to 9 at max, before getting feedback.

              I honestly wish I'd gotten a less hot pickup...

                  Suhr SSV+ or DSV. Great all arounders that split well. Mix well with singles, unlike a JB.

                  Live like a sheep, die like a lamb.
