I'm thinking about replacing the Fat '50s bridge pickup in my red strat for a hotter one, so I can cover more ground when covering hard rock songs.

A mini humbucker (something like a Seymour Duncan JB) would be outstanding, but what do you think of a milder option, like a Seymour SSL5, I mean a hot single coil instead of a humbucker?

Would it be REALLY hotter than a fat '50s bridge pickup?

I am considering this because I would like to have more output without disfiguring my strat's classic tone.
