deathdr - thats true, the middle pickup can be useful if combined with bridge or neck...but if budget gets tight he can decide to stick with the stock middle and do away with the middle Hotrail

disturbed - a Squier Strat in a place in Bangalore costs 12k and the Duncan Hotrails (Bridge and Neck) would cost about 7.5k including insured shipping from ebay and 6.9k if you want them from Steve (there will be duties this way)
