I've been playing my Strat a bit more recently and I have arrived at the conclusion that the bridge pickup is pants. I have tried all manner of adjusting but it sounds tinny and weak. The neck pickup sounds lovely and i've lowered the middle pickup all the way so my hamfisted picking hand stops hitting it with the plectrum.
Recommendations for a beefy bridge pickup please! Not looking to spend loads so Oil City etc would do nicely.
