I have a nice vintage 1978 Stratocaster,Lite ash,maple neck,hard tail.
It has nice hand wound Lollar pickups (uh,men) and SD Little 59' in bridge position.
After lot of thinking/listening I realized I could never have real humbucking sound without true humbucker.
I have real 59' installed in Les Paul, and although it is different guitar, string definition and richness is far better than Little 59'.I still think little 59' is great concept, but not the real thing..
So,I have to dig on my vintage strat to make a hole in bridge position....
If I do that,I must be sure I'll get much better sound then with single-coiled humbucker.
I could go on trying different pups,maybe even Dimarzio pro-track,but Little 59 has specs. I want
What is the recommended humbucker pickup for bridge position,maple/lite ash strat.
I play mostly hard rock, with higher gained solos and riffs aka Slash,Gary Moore, Kirk Hammet,Van Halen, Satriani...

It must have great string definition on higher gain,rich sound with vintage warmth and growl, screaming solos, defined rhythm chords on lower strings.
[B]So,any suggestion/experience will help, I must be sure should I dig a hole in my trusty Strat??!![/B]
