I've got a MIM Strat that I want to give to my nephew and it currently has a set of CS '54s in it. However, my nephew plays a lot of metal, along with 70s & 80s covers. I'm thinking a set of S/S/H pups would be more in line with his style of music. What do you recommend?

I'm a big fan of Fender's DH-1/Diamondback in the bridge of Strats. They may not work well for other guitars, but sound good in Strats.

A lot of options here, including 1) keeping the neck and middle '54's, 2) keeping the SSS pickguard and getting a Strat-size HB for the bridge, 3) going HSH. Plus all the various pups on the market.

If you already decided to go HSS, and to replace all the pups, the first thing I'd think about is, do you want to keep the Strat character in the neck and middle pups? If your nephew is really into metal and heavy music, this may not be important. If so, something like 2 Fender Texas Specials and a Duncan JB (or Dimarzio Tone Zone) might be a good starting point.

The Duncan Li'l '59 is a SC-sized humbucker that drops right into a Strat pickguard. Great sounding pickup. Not as mid-rangey as a typical standard (larger) humbucker, but totally usable tones are in there.
