    I love your strat. Love the paint. Puts me in mind of a maneating shark for some reason. You need to name it "The Shark" or "Maneater" or something.

    Where'd the paint job come from?
    I was thinking Strateater..

    It's not a paint job, but a Fotoflame strat...this is how it looks in the real world...

    Yeah... you're right, but that was the only pickup available with a flat plain cover... the ClassicStack I have is an old one from the 80s with a plain SD cover, with the big "S" logo engraved on top.. pretty rare and unusual... fyi, I have 2 HotStacks for sale with those cover... check the Trading post...

    I think I prefer a5 magnets in a Strat: more bass, clearer mids and bright chimey highs.

    But a2 sounds just fine too...just not as "classic" and glassy a Strat tone as the pickups from the 50's and 60's.

    I have an a2p flat in my moore...i like it alright, not glass though... but if you want something with character and more of a vintage sound...the antiquites are the way to go...i guess it just depends on what sound your looking for...!?

    Will it post a problem when i use any humbucker?

    Also they donch have single coils in lefty in S'pore haha

    Can i settle for vintage flats or alnico pro 2 flats?

    Will it be better?

    My current idea is to have all Alnico pro 2 pu or all 59's

    What do u think -P
    No problem with a humbucker...just adjust the polepieces any way that sounds best to you.

    As for single coils, you might prefer them flat if you're a lefty.

    Do they have to all be humbucking? I prefer real single coils for the neck and middle of the Strat.

    I like two SSL-1's or SSL-2's and a 59 Trembucker.

    For a sweeter, more bell like tone: two APS1 or APS2 or Tex Hots and a 59 Trembucker.

    I'm going to try a 78/EVH Trembucker with one of these combos as soon as it arrives from the Custom Shop.

    But generally I like a alnico 5 bridge humbucker (like the 59 B or TB) in a Strat because it seems to have more bass response...and just sounds good!

    well, for bridge....... i think the Custom has the ebst solo tone.

    for neck............. i dont have much experience with duncan neck single coils, but i'll say lil 59.

    for middle............... i have no clue maybe a lil 59 again.
