There are guys here who have built Alligators and I am sure they will chime in. I just reacquired from a friend a partscaster that I built 23 years ago and will be installing three SDS-1s. Just because pickup selection seems like such an iffy process (you really don't know what you will get until they are installed), I am going with the SDS-1s because I am familiar with the sound and one of the best pickups I ever used was a P-90 style.

Anyone try the Bardens while going for a Jer tone on a Strat? They wouldn't give you Alligator, but they are super strong and crispy. (Evil disclaimer: I am scheming to upgrade the MIM Strat I bought my daughter a couple of years ago... heh heh heh )
