Ok folks, I've decided. This Monday, I'll be placing an order for an S.D Custom humbucker for my quasai-frankenstrat, to replace the somewhat muddy Invader I've got in there at the moment.
My question: Should I go for a Trembucker (like i suspect) or regular spacing?
It's a Squier, and for some reason, there's a pretty unique-looking tremolo system in it, or at least one I've never seen before*. The E strings are exactly two inches apart at the bridge pickup area.
The pole pieces on the Invader (which is a unisex pickup) roughly match the strings around the bass end, but at the treble end, the strings start to trail away. The high E is only just "resting" on the edge of bolt head.
I'm not quite sure how to interpret this. Do you think I should be going for the TB-5 or would the SH-5 suit it better? I think it's probably a Trembucker job, but I would just like to be sure!
* for those of you who may be interested in this tremolo bridge, it basically looks like a standard fender trem, but it's the pivot point part that I have never seen before. All the other fenders I've seen have a row of screws on them, this one just has two semi-circular pivot slots, much like a floyd rose. It didn't seem to operate any better than usual fender tremolos (i've blocked it up to make it hardtail now, anyway) but it just looks perculiar!
