    If the PG is your favourite pickup, buy it.

    If youíre comfortable with it, it sounds good and you play better with it in your guitar, then nobodyís going to give a shit what kind of PU is in the guitar.

    I believe thereís a demo video on YT of a guy who put a Gates bridge PU in his Strat. Sounds kickass.

    Cause itís a PAF. 😎

    Don't go too crazy dude... A lot of pickups/amps/pedals, etc. are marketing tools... If it sounds good to you, it is good. Concentrate more on just getting comfortable playing...

    I played a few really big shows about 2 years ago with a $130 OLP guitar from a pawn shop straight through a Crate 212 solid state combo, and had people complimenting my tone left and right.

    I've never replaced a pickup in any of my guitars. As long as they are somewhat hot, I just eq it from the amp/tone controls to get the sound I want...

    I thank you both for your advice; PG it is

    I just got done with a few practice exercises, and I play everything through the single pole pickups. Even with my low end amp, the single poles sound stratty but they're pleasant; the humbucker in this thing, however...I dunno what they were thinking.
