    I like Fralin SP42 rear on my SRV. Also I like Suhr V60LP rear on my Suhr strat.

    What is your favorite? Pure single coil pickups. (no stacked single)

    PS, Anybody has Rio Grande "Dirty Harry Jr " 11.8K
    Another P90 sounding single coil.

    Thanks for your info.

    Seymour Duncan Twangbanger....kind of a cross between a P90 and a Tele pick up. Nice and fat with good midrange and no icepick tone.

    Duncan Antiquity Custom Bridge. Biggest fattest tone I ever heard in a bridge Strat single coil pickup.

    Stephens Design tall texan bridge pickup. I asked him to wind me a bridge pickup that would sound like a tele, and he nailed it. Detailed lows and a beautiful high end with great presence and no ice picky harshness.
    Enjoy

    another vote for the Fralin SP43. Most versatile pickup I've ever had in a strat-oid.

    I like Fralin SP43 for the bridge. Big & Hot. I'm sure Lollar can wind a dream if so desired. I like what Lindy does over & over again. He just winds straight up vintage pickups with slight variations of sparkle and punch. And they have stood the test of time. Fer sure.

    My favorite is the Suhr V60LPs on my Suhr strat ... the best I've ever heard.
