I have a Hohner strat copy which needs a new humbucker so I am thinking of changing all 3. I'd love the same bridge sound as my Hamer (Koa body) but don't know if a jb would translate to the strat. The Hamer's pickups are also covered but I dont think I could bring myself to put a nickel covered HB in a strat bridge as I think it looks awful with uncovered SCs. I would like to use the middle for country sounds. Anybody tried a twang banger, or another pup with a base plate attached, in the middle?
I don't need to split the HB. If it covers clean and dirty well as a bucker ill be happy. I would be mostly using the bucker for blues and rock, using the neck pup for blues and very occasionally some rock.
I'm quite happy to try sc sized buckers and live without the hum if I could get the sounds I'm after, but I guess the sounds I want for neck and middle would be better suited to real single coils. Any suggestions?
