    I have just one - but think I like them!

    I am also looking at a tele with them also

    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.

    They worked great for Elliot Randall, the late Hiram Bullock and the Iron Maiden guy(sorry).

    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.
