    Hey folks, I bought a MIA strat that had a SD mini JB humbucker in the bridge but for some reason i'm not really digging the super high output and was wondering if anybody could suggest a good Fender single coil to replace it with?

    Thanks!

    You could always just get another American Standard pickup, to match the others. They sell new for around $32 on ebay.

    Does it have to be Fender? And what's your budget

    no, doesn't have to be Fender, i just want a good single coil pickup that can hold it's own and also make the second p/up position sound like it's supposed to on a s/s/s strat, within a 100$ budget.

    hey, man
    that Fender CS69 pickup would be cool..Or you could look up the wire codes for an Am. Standard Bridge pickup using Fender Support, and get 1 of those :) . That might be best if you like the way the other 2 work together?

    I don't think the CS 69 would match up with the other 2 pickups very well. Maybe a Fralin SP43.

    yeah, i like how the stock neck/middle sound so maybe i'll go with replacing the bridge p/u that was taken out of it....like ventilatorblues suggested.

    what's this about looking up the wire codes? lol could you explain a bit more?

    yeah, man..I just meant check what colors the wires are supposed to be on it, before buying so you know it's an Am. Standard bridge pickup.
    I think this is it :) .
    Fender Am Std Stratocaster pickup - bridge

    I'm not clear what the OP's Strat is, or what pickups are in it already? Have we been told this?

    CS 69 if you can find a single on Ebay. D.Allen's only come in sets.
    I'd recommend the DiMarzio Virtual Solo. Its a stacked humbucker, but sounds very single coil like, and has zero hum. My Am Std bridge pup is lying in a drawer!
