I got a 2011 Fender Strat. The wiring isn't so good. It's obvious between me and the former owner, a few connections have had to be replaced. The bridge pickup (stock ceramic) shows signs of corrosion. The others, I've been too lazy too look closely at. Their ceramic, nothing special. I have the time comming up, and am thinking about changing the pickups. The guitar has good tone unplugged, and plays like butter. I can't decide between making it single coil (The 57/62 Pickup Set, new pickguard, some shielding, and new pots/switch) Or a JB (maybe a '59), and 2 decent single coils. I play a mix of everything. So talk me into one, talk me out of one.
