Looking to put a humbucker in my '62 Strat RI bridge. I have Lindy Fralin Vintage Hots in the neck and middle (love them). I play Zep (duh), EVH, ZZ Top type stuff with a LP usually but I would like to be able to play these with my Strat if need be. I just don't want to have to lug a Strat AND a Les Paul every time I go and jam.
Give you an idea of what I like. I have a Les Paul Studio with Gibson 498t's that I tend to only use for slide (i find those are too muddy for much else). I have a Les Paul Standard with '57 Classics that I like. and another one with Burstbuckers that I really like. I like my distortion to come from my amps and not my pickups. I have heard EVH used a lower output (8.5ish) Alnico II humbucker in his Strat for VH1. With those specs, you would think the Pearly Gates would work, but I am afraid of too much (icepick) high end--I hear that is a problem in that p/u.
(almost done) Are the Blues Saraceno Trembuckers the same as the blues trembuckers? Do I need trembuckers to fit my strat properly?
Thanks a ton for all input.
