While I still dig sc pickups, over the past few years I've found myself gravitating more toward humbuckers for gigs (usually my LPs). Also play these a lot:

Darn tele I was looking at ended auction early on ebay.....

probably better that way - my wife knows I need another guitar like a - you know - and I was already trying to figure out how to justify it

"Honey it's a different guitar - I don't have a telecaster".

LOVE that white strat by the way Nub - gorgeous

This is my Strat with two single and one humbucker. Under the tone knob there is a toggle switch that will split the humbucker. I really like this guitar.

Got an HSS Strat I love and just got one of the Squier Vintage Modified Telecasters with the dual Humbuckers. Votes still out on that one. First impression; SG without neck dive.

Yeah, I know this thread's last post was 2 months ago, but....



Love my H/H strat. Had it for several years. Mighty Mite neck, StewMac Flametop body, S. Duncan JB/Jazz pickups, Gotoh bridge, Grover tuners. I have other guitars, but this one is still one of the best sounding and playing guitars I've ever held in my hands.

Yep, a couple of years ago, the neck and electronics didn't survive, but the body & hardware did.
