    If you had written “I have a strat with single coils, but I want a PAF tone like Billy Gibbons” then I’d say definitely. But you already have SD mini buckers. No reason to change them unless you personally feel you want a change. I think that lil 59 is going to end up sounding pretty similar to these anyway.
    Thank you....I appreciate it. I love both my guitars as they are. Perhaps if I get a 3rd strat at some point Iíll spring for one. But the tone Iím getting with these guitars through my rig is just wonderful.

    Any idea how the Red Devil bridge compares to a Dimarzio Chopper?

    I recently bought a new Player Series Strat (Mex) and considered replacing the bridge pup with a Little 59, but after seeing the Red Devil, may go that route. My question is, will there be a balance problem, powerwise / volumewise with the other pups? I also may acquire an ‘89 USA Strat soon and considered doing the same with it.

    Welcome to the forum!

    While I am going on speculation (none of us here have these yet), I believe the Red Devil has more mids than the Little 59. It will sound like a humbucker, and yes, there will be a volume difference between that and the stock Fender pickups (that is sort of the point). It won't be a crazy difference, but you will hear it. It is like putting a hot PAF-type pickup in your Strat.

    ive found the neck lil59 makes a great bridge pup with low output vintage type single coils. it still adds a bit of output and thickness but balances quite well volume wise

    I notice that these will be 4-conductor. I wonder how Strat-like they get in parallel. That would be sweet if you could go from hot PAF to Strat with the flip of a switch.

    I'm thinking these might be the ticket for my mahogany bodied G&L Legacy Tribute. Just gotta save a few bucks.

    im going to say no. since there is way too much difference there. billy uses a graphic eq to make all the guitars sound as close to pearly as possible

    Yes. They have 4-conductor wiring.

    I have a 96 Lone Star strat... it came with a Pearly Gates Plus Humbucker . It was good, but I ended up exchanging if for a SD 59/custom... I moved the PG+ to the neck of my 74 Les Paul (Custom/Custom on the bridge). The Strat now has a unique , almost Bell like sound With the 59/Custom in the bridge... add a little crunch/distortion and it is really good. When the PG+ was in the strat, it definitely had that Texas sizzle, but seemed a little more one dimensional to me... the 59/custom is more versatile..

    I have the strat. a 74 Les Paul Custom, and a 17 PRS 24... the last 2 are classic beauties, But the strat I went a little Gaudy on :-) I was interested in the name Red Devil of these pickups for an obvious reason.. it has a carbon fiber neck and I added the Fet-FX leds for playing in low light (hard to see the black neck.)

    You can put it in my Strat!

    Really interested in your thoughts. PGs are some of my favorite SD pickups, curious how this new set sounds.
