    First at all, i want to say hello to the comunity.

    Im a guy from Spain, i´ve been playing guitar since 20 years ago and i always loved the strats with FR..

    I just recently adquired a chinese 99´s Stagemaster for a very cheap price, second hand. I am still waiting for it to arrive home.

    My principal doudts about this stagemaster models is about the pickups and the FR. How good are they? Are they good enough or shall i replace the pickups?? How about the lycensed FR they bring, good, bad....?

    In case of upgrading, what models of humbucker and single pickups can you suggest? This guitar will be just to play hard rock and heavy metal styles

    Thanks in advance, i´ll be so grateful with your feedback, mates

    Seymour Duncan Invader Bridge pickup and Dimarzio Tone Zone for the others is a good combo....but you really don't need to change pickups for metal if you get the right overdrive/distortion pedal in front of a good amp!
