I've finally decided I don't like the pickups in my Squier Strat. They are ceramic and I've tried everything from lowering, raising, wiring them as a humbucker (there's only two; long story) in a custom-cut pickguard, but they just sound, I dunno... wheezy for lack of a better term. They sound er... OK for cleans, but put them on a little distortion or a lot and out come the razors and shallow breathing. I'd really like to put some single-coil-sized humbuckers in it, but I don't have the budget for that right now, but I was looking around my room and found some little 'SuperMagnets' I forgot I had; six of them, to be exact, right around the size of my pickup poles... hmmm... I was planning on prying off the ceramics and putting the button magnets on the pole bottoms, but I don't want to go through all that just to find out it sounds even more like crap, so now I'm asking you good folks; I know that Neodymium magnets are stronger than ceramic, and ceramic's magnetic strength is supposedly what makes them sound shriller than AlNiCo magnets in a pickup, but does anyone of you have any experience with Neos on the pickup poles?
