    I realize the standard answer is a red dually but want to see if anyone else has used a similar combo. The stock pickup in my Parker P-38 is ok but I want better than ok if the guitar is to stay.

    I have a 93 Strat Deluxe Plus with the blue silver and "single" red bridge.

    The single red sounds great for the type of music I play.

    I have the exact same year and model! I LOVE the R/S/B combo.......

    In regards to the original post, I'd state the obvious and plug a Red Dually in there myself.

    EDIT:

    Other than going full on Red/Red........and sticking with Lace (cause I love 'em) try any other Dually set up......like this:

    Early on, I had Lace Gold Sensors in the neck and middle, and a Silver in the bridge. Great combination.

    I never mentioned and it's not obvious by the pic I posted but the guitar is HSS.

    I did the same thing with my HSS partscaster, only with a DiMarzio FRED, wired to select series or parallel.

    I have two of these Strats one an 89' Deluxe and the other a 91' Ultra. The red is not my favorite. In fact I think it is the worst pickup of the entire line. If you want to stay in the LACE family I strongly suggest Hot Gold 19k Dually, Chrome Dome Dually or Purple/Emerald Dually or the Alumitone. Outside the lace pickups I would run to the store and buy a Seymour Duncan Black Winter or Pearly Gates depending on style.

    Finally got around to looking under the hood today and the humbucker is a Dimarzio Tone Zone. I may play with it some more and see what I can make of it, never had one of these before.

    Nice! Can't go wrong there then......I may be way off base here but when I think of DiMarzio humbucker's I think primarily of a heavy metal sound. I've had a set of their single coils at one time (since sold long ago) but never a humbucker. If ya can tame it, do so. If not I'd go with the Lace Dually.

    Note: edited due to terrible grammar and spelling, LOL.......I need a coffee.
