  • humbucker in a strat??

    i have an american deluxe strat v-neck that i love how it feels and plays and for the most part how it sounds

    i am thinking of putting a humbucker in the bridge which would be for insane pinch harmonics and heavy rock
    sumthing along the lines of the scorpions or EVH

    i would MUCH prefer putting in a single coil size humbucker such as a seymour duncan jb jr or seymour duncan hot rails but i have heard that they dont sound anything like a true 'bucker
    what do you think?


    o and obviously since i would have to buy a new pickguard the full sized route is more expensive
    EDIT: I AM PUTTING IN A FULL SIZE BUCKER
    SO FAR I HAVE LOOKED AT
    EVO
    JB

    PAF?>

    None of the above. Buy a second guitar for heavy rock, something with buckers in it. Carving up an American Deluxe - the title of that project should be "How to make a $1000 MIA Strat worth less than $500 overnight."

          can anyone attest to the difference in sound between a full size bucker and a rails bucker?
          also which has better gain and harmonic response ( i love pinch harmonics)
          out of jb jr
          hot rails
          or a full size?

              I stuck a Lace Sensor HB in my MIM Strat a long time ago. It sounds great. I can't remember what "color" the pickup was, though.

                    I could be crazy??But I dont like Humbuckers in Strats at all.
                    It just seems wrong,I dont know why.

                      Humbuckers in strats make them the most versatile guitars ever...

                      I'm still regretting selling my Jackson DK2, even with a lifted fret.
