I've been wanting to change the neck pickup on my Strat for a while now. It's got a nice sound and all, but I've been living with it for the past three years and I'm getting a bit bored with it.
I was at the guitar shop a couple hours ago, and I played on an Epiphone Goldtop of some description with P-90s in it. It blew me away - especially the sound coming from the neck pickup. I've basically decided that I have to have the P-90 sound in the neck of my Strat. So, boys and girls, what do you suggest?
Buying a new pickguard or slicing up my existing pickguard to make room for a real P-90 is not an option, by the way...it's got to be in a single-coil size; I went to the hassle of getting a posh H/S/S scratchplate so that I could fit a JB that I purchased especially from the USA (I live in England).
Thanks in advance! I've been lurking on this forum for ages - it was from the posts here that I decided to get a JB, and it's probably the best guitar-related decision I've ever made!
