I have made a point to use a SSS configuration in my Strats for years. I have had a couple humbuckers but they were not really used. I finally caved and setup this white Strat with a Guitar Madness 57 Alnico II humbucker paired with a set of MIM ceramic singles. The pick guard is a modified SSS too. IDK why but I just like the look of a white Strat with a black humbucker in the bridge. I also swapped the neck today and put my 2012 MIM neck with a bone nut on it. Tomorrow I'm planning on hooking up this Ultimate distortion pedal and running through my USA built Fender Blues Deluxe amp and see what this rig sounds like. It has the effects loop attenuator mod so my ears don't bleed.
