I’ve had numberous Strats over the years and am again looking for a new one. Right now I have a "Big Apple Strat" which has two humbuckers. Its a great
guitar, but lacks that classic single coil Strat sound.
I’ve been looking online for a replacement and am seeing tons of Strat pickup options: Noiseless, Lace Sensor,MIJ’s,etc.
In the past I guess I never really paid attention to what pickups were on my Strats, and I assume they were just basic standard P/U’s.
But the thought of a "noiseless" single coil does sound good. Thats the one thing that always bothered me about my Strats – they always had some buzz. Onstage it doesn’t matter that much, but I do mostly recording now and I’d like a quiet
guitar. However, not at the expense of losing the classic tone.
Can anyone tell me the over best single coil pick up that will give me the classic Strat sound, yet is quiet,(at least relatively quiet)? I’ve heard alot of good things about MIJ Strats made in the 80’s, how do they compare?
