    I want to replace the stock humbucker in the MIM Strat. I really love the SD Custom 5 in my LP and want something with similar attack and output. I was looking at the JB, but I really dislike ceramic mags. Will a Custom 5 sound alright in a Strat body?
    I think the two single coils (HSS) sound okay, and they'll stay in for now.

    If you are keeping the two single coils. Highly recommend that you find something that will match the 2 single coils specs (output, eq, & etc).

    This would absolutely be my choice, too.
