I have a couple Strats and because of the extremely noisy place we practice I ended up getting the Suhr backplate system for my EJ Strat first. Loved it worked great. Before I go further..I have tried pretty much all noiseless SC pups. From Kinman to Lawrence to the Fenders SCN's and VN's and some Lace stuff. They are all great pups and the noiseless part is great. But to my ears they just aren't the same. JMOO So, after getting the Suhr BBS I got another one for my other Strat. Fast forward to now... I decided to sell the other Strat and try to raise enough jack to get another EJ. So I put it back to stock and took off the Suhr BBS. And sold it actually! I now regret it! Last night we had practice and I took both guitars. Playing the regular equip't Strat with just RWRP middle. I was back to having to play in the hum canceling positions. There is a huge difference in the amount of noise in the other positions though. I just had to go back to the EJ with the Suhr BBS. My long winded point is that after having the Suhr BBS I started taking it for granted and really didn't remember how much difference it makes. I will say in our practice place even with the Suhr BBS there is still a little noise. This place is a huge metal building with lots and lots of fluorescent lights. The thing is that it reduces the noise so much I can play without using a pup setting that I don't really want to for a particular song or trying to find the one small body position that will quite the beast a bit. Plus your guitar sounds just like normal. Just my thoughts. I'm not trying to shill for Suhr. I don't own any other Suhr products except the BBS. From my experience it is a very good solution.
