    Default Help me find some Pups before I go crazy!!!

    I have a MIM Strat that I have for sale right now. Reason is, I hate the stock pups in it with a passion. I am not crazy about the strat quack, and the extreme high treble response on all the stock pups. I have a Crook Tele that has an APC adder in the neck and a TE50 Voodoo in the bridge with 4 way wiring. I am looking for a nice set of either HSS or HH configs. I am plating into a Twin reverb and using Wampler Pinnalce and Paisly for dirt and od. I am looking for pickups that do well with distortion, that is balanced and clear. Something to hold tone without getting woofy and flubby in the low end, and Not too ear piercing high in the treble end. I have a link to a clip of the style I play and the amount of dirt I play with.

    I am open to suggestion. I dont really want to trade or sell my strat for a tele just to put the same pup config in. Thanks again guys for your help.

    Pickups? SD Twangbanger, Five-Two, Five-Two RP/RW (in that order, bridge to neck). Fender No-Load Tone control kit for the lower control, connected to both centre and bridge pickups. (Just add a jumper wire at the selector switch.)

    First I'd wire the middle tone knob so that it works with the bridge p'up also.
    Then I'd go with Duncan SSl-5's at the neck an middle positions and a Duncan SSL-4 at the bridge.

    They'll give you more beef and the SSL-4 with the tone knob can be heaven.
