    So I'm going to switch out my Bronco pups. They sound ok, but I hate the 60 cycle hum and just want to change it. What should I look for? I bass favored pickup, a mid favored, or a treble favored pup? Like Dimarzio for example.

    Super Distortion S- bass favored sound
    Fast Trak 2- mid favored
    Fast Trak 1- Treble favored.

    I was a good bass response without being muddy. I even considered doing a Strat size Blackout, but I didn't want to butcher the body or have to take off the pickguard for battery changes. Yes, I did a search. Just no real answers as to why people picked what pup they picked. And I'm assuming I should go with 250k pots.

    And just in case it matters.. Standard tuning, maybe Drop D at the lowest. Hard Rock music.(think Buckcherry sound) I'd like a good output too. Something that'll push my Orange preamp tubes.

    I hated the pickup on my Squier Bronco.

    The only pickups that did not require enlarging
    the cavity and/or pickguard either were not
    good pickups, or they cost too much.

    I had a nice P bass pickup, so I used that. I
    had to chisel a little and make a pickup ring.
    but it sounds good now,
