    Sounds great but doesnt guarantee it will sound like that in your guitar or through your rig. I wish there was a guarantee I'd order that pickup right now! :yesway:

    I think that's an original 59 though he doesn't specify. The Lollars will get that type of tone (I'm sure others will too). That dude is considerably better than me but I bet if he played my guitar thru his rig it would sound very similar. Bridge pickups are strange on Strats but some people use them- Beck, SRV, Hendrix, Gary Moore etc.
    This dude Isiaih from Earthless makes the bridge pickup sound good.

    Chuck on a few FX and I like the stockers (Lace Sensors) in my 80's Strat with a Full shred in the bridge.
    Fiddling around with this idea tonight swapping from the neck to the bridge.
    Thought it might be worth a listen in this thread, as a change is as good as a holiday they say.
    Maybe there are lots of choices you would like but I bet once installed you will think, Hmm what would those sound like.
    I like swapping and trying new pickups but have sort of settled back on this setup in this guitar after a long journey.
    Have fun:)

    I bought a really nice Strat a few years ago with kinman noiseless pickups and they are so good.
