    Ppl, I have got this guitar, its called, ahem, A Squire California strat(Beaming cherry red man, I love it). Naturally I need to modify it. I am going to change the Neck and Bridge pickups. I want the hum canceling ones. Still no cutting the guitar. Suggest a few pickups. I need to keep my budget within 8-9k total. And what about rewiring the whole thing in shielded wires?

    I think you get humbuckers that are single coil sized but dunno what they are called or their cost or availability in India. Don't you also get noise cancelling single coils?

    dude i have this SD Hot rails on my bridge. Its pretty good and the whole humm factor is gone with this(offcourse its wat SD for and why its expensive). Pretty good ones IMO.Dont know if u get it here havnt checked. its single coil too for the info.Get more suggestion from others. This has got more of crunch in it. if u want a melow stuff then check the others. dont know man all the best.

    I have replaced my bridge with SD Quarter Pounder. Now I get solid bite in 3 pick up selections, from the centre to the bridge position. My neck pick up has a bluesy sound, so I am not going to change that, neither the middle one. This said, however, my squier is a standard series UK market issue, and costed me a lot, and the pick ups are generaly better. Point is, why don't you change only the bridge pickup first and see what that does for you? And preferably, get someone to carry the pick up from abroad. I got my SD for INR 2500, almost 30% cheaper than what it sells for in India.

    ashu rocks. haven't bought anything from him yet, but i've met him a few times at gigs etc and he's quite amiable and straightforward. also, he knows his stuff, so you aren't buying from a bozo.
