    Lying on bed... got a whisper of "come on.. you play rock way more than blues or clean.. your tele is enough.. go go go" ...
    This whisper is because of a trade offer i got... an american deluxe strat HSS for my SSS american special... it is 4 am here now.. cant sleep.. cant decide !

    I like my american special.. but a humbucker in bridge is cool !!

    So buy another guard and a bucker and switch guards, You can always go back. Why trade a guitar you already like?
    You can split the bucker so you still have single coil OR get a single sized bucker.
    So many options.

    Yeah many options out there Caretaker... However, I don't want to spend a penny :D
    I like the other guitar by the way.. the owner is a friend so I played that guitar.. feels so close to mine.. almost same neck and same neck finish..

    It may end up we share both guitars :)

    A humbucker Strat is heresy.

    I think a deluxe HSS is a nicer piece than a special.

    Drop a mini humbucker (single coil sized stack) in and add a coil switch.

    Wire your bridge and middle pickup in series. It's free and you can undo it when you come back to the realization that SSS Strats are the best Strats. :p

    I use either HSS or HH Strats, tradition be damned. I never used a Strat bridge pickup alone, especially clean.

    A dimarzio tone zone strat is available locally used.. i believe it should be good for 80s rock !

    What about my strat for this?

    2012 SG Standard
    FB_IMG_1511964785467.jpg

    Would that do 80s/90s hard rock better than strat?
