Hey guys! I finally found a humbucker I love enough with a 500K volume pot in my American fat strat to maybe make this thing work for me. Some clarity for me, LOL! The Area series are those that look like real singles? What is the rail series called? The Cruiser series? Interesting how DiMarzio in their explainations will often say how this pickup is an improvement over this other pickup or an enhancement or progression in the series such as Cruiser -> Chopper -> etc.....and Area -> and so on...What are the main characteristic differences? I am a humbucker guy and use singles sparingly and prefer to never, LOL. I don't want this strat to sound like my humbucker guitars but I still much prefer either full humbucker, mini HBs, and I loved the Chopper in the bridge and to be honest, it seemed like a full on HB. I am not a single coil guy from the start. All my guitars, even my strat has a humbucker as the main pickup. The singles need to be able to keep up in temrs of output or at least close. I don't want to have to find ways to make adjustments to get single coils to stand out or be louder. Remember, I am a humbucker guy at heart. I can't really change that nature. So I am looking at the Injectors, Satch track and maybe the Corgan pickups or the Chopper. I saw a few reviews of the Injectors where guys who were hardcore heavy humbucker users claimed the Injectors were some of the first noiseless singles they could live with and I am tempted to try those with my Air Zone. My Air Zone and 500K volume is eating the DiMarzio Virtual 54 singles I have now, for lunch. They are going up for sale soon. I keep looking at the Satch Track neck and maybe a Cruiser middle? I find the Cruicer sound crazy good for clean and gain anyway. Maybe a Fast Track 1 in the middle and the Satch in the neck? Fast Track will more easily stay with the Air Zone according to DiMarzio. One thing I must emphasize.....I want my single coil tones to be able to hang with my humbuckers in output and volume. Therefore, they can be big and muscular......keep in mind, I have been using mostly humbucker tones (clean and dirty) for 30 years so I am used to it. I don't want to have to adjust the amp or a pedal to account for a quiet and weak single coil for a song or part of a song. They have to hang with the Air Zone. The 54 Pros are not hanging no matter what I do. I would also consider a DiMarzio Norton in the bridge over the Air Zone as I hear it can be amazingly good in a strat. However, I am loving the AZ! DiMarzio tech has told me on several occassions, to not change out the 250k tone pots. They say to leave those be - since I will not notice a big difference with these pickups. Not positive about this since this could help the Injectors, Fast Track or Satch Track stand better with the Air Zone bridge pickup. Thanks all! And.....this is in no way a slam on single coils. I just know who I am and trying to work with it. I love a lot of single coil players....Blackmore, Gilmour......but I can not play singles for some reason. Almost like a mental block. Maybe some day, LOL. That is why I straddle the fence of single coil land at best.
