@geetarfreek82 - it's a bit tricky to hear the actual acoustic sound of your guitar through the distortion and octave pedal, but I know you are also going for a totally different sound than the two humbuckers in it and that you know what pickups will sound good in your guitar. I'll try to approach it from a more theoretical point of view... Since Strat pickups are almost always A5, I think that's the sound that most people have in mind when they think of a Strat. Coils, as you know could be either hand wound for a 50's / early 60's sound or machine wound for a later 60's and 70's sound. How you want to go on that just depends on your preference. The machine wound coils have a bit more of a distinct "quack" and the hand wound ones are a little more true in frequency response and more open sounding. I could also say machine wound Start pickups tend to have more character and hand wound ones tend to have more clarity. For the bridge, there are more options. You could take a similar approach with the bridge and go for A5s with the option of hand or machine wound to match the era of the middle/neck Strat pickups but I have another idea that's a little more abstract that you might like - if it were mine, I'd put a Blackguard style pickup in the bridge for a contrasting/complimenting sound to the middle and neck. I think a hand wound A3 flat-pole bridge pickup would be a super cool compliment to the neck and middle, especially if you have a blend pot or switch to throw a bridge/neck combination into the equation. That would be a truly cool sound. So, the downside to doing something like that is that the middle and neck pickup positions are naturally louder, and with more bass, due to the physics of their location in relation to the center of the strings' vibration. A5s being so much louder than A3s certainly compounds this. I think the solution here is nothing of a compromise though, and would only result in a much cooler and complex combination of pickups and a wider range of voicings for the guitar - mid/late 60's A5 machine wound middle and neck Strat pickups with thinner staggered and chamfered magnets combined with an early Esquire-style bridge pickup that's got thicker long flatpole A3s and is wound nice and hot, in the 10k Ohms range, for a better balance of output and bass with the other two pickups and a real rocking style bridge that it in the "Keef" territory. Of course, it's all up to your preferences and you know what you like so if you wanted a 60's-style machine wound, chamfered and staggered Tele bridge pickup, for the ultimate in Tele-twangy-goodness, that's totally doable, as well. Just kinda going with my gut on the above. Lemme know what you think!
