    I would think a Darkburst or Goodwood would do the trick. Real smooth and clean up well with voulme changes. Also split pretty nice too.

    I replaced my Pearly Gates with a Dimarzio PAF PRO. Works great for me.

    Consider the Filmore. It's only slightly hotter than the others when in humbucking mode, but it splits nicely to a single coil. If you want a mellower tone take a look at the Fralin Unbucker.

    Consider the Rio Grande BBQ/Texas. Some of the best split sounds I've ever heard. They're packin a little heat and bring the meat!

    I'd second the Darkburst/Goodwood recommendation!

    But all of Jim's humbuckers sound great to me. Although there are a couple models I haven't had a chance to listen too.

    I'm kinda partial to the Darkburst.

    BTW, Jim's a very cool guy, give him a call and tell him what you are looking for and he will guide you to the right pickup!

    I've got Fillmores in a couple different strat type guitars, and both sound great to my ears. Great split tones!

    I played a pair of darkbursts in a set neck 24/3/4" scale mahogany guitar and they seemed a bit "muffled" sounding, but with a strat that might just be the ticket.
