Fender Squier

What single coil pickups have good sustain?

I have a fender squier and i want to get some better pick ups with good sustain. Do i just need to buy a new guitar?

Hello there,

If sustain is an issue for you, you have the wrong guitar. A Stratocaster, by it very design, has terrible sustain. It is light weight body. It has a large cavity for the tremolo bridge. It has large cavities for pickups, controls and wiring. It has a bolt on neck. All of that is a sustain killer.

By contrast, a Gibson Les Paul has a hefty mahogany body and hefty mahogany neck. The design is a set neck. It has smaller cut-outs for pickups and controls. It has a fixed bridge. All of that together give the Les Paul is legendary tone and sustain. However, it does not have the classic tone of a Stratocaster. It does not have the brightness and clarity of a Stratocaster. It does not have a tremolo bridge. Those are the things you get for the price of loss of sustain in a Strat. If sustain is more important than those factors, forget about switching pickups, switch guitars.

You can get a compressor pedal to improve the sustain of a Strat.
