my HSS MIM Strat is about to go into maintenance and I'm wondering if I should have the single coil pickups swapped also. I'm a beginner guitar player and I like the humbucker sound. I'm looking to get a more Gilmour type of sound with the possibility to run the single coils with more gain and od. I might also change the original humbucker.. but ideally and cost-wise preferably not.
Any recommendations for neck / middle pickups? So far I've looked into SSL-1 neck and SSL-3 or SSL-5 in the middle - would these work well with the stock MIM bridge humbucker?
