.....I’ve been playing far too long and have enjoyed good strat tone not to know this, but I don’t, What makes a strat honk or cluck like this? and this? I have an opportunity to acquire a parts strat built with warmoth maple neck and alder body. It has dimarzio pickups in it, which I’m not a fan of, they’re - bridge - virtual solo - middle - Area 51 - neck - heavy blues. The guy has a toggle switch wired to turn on the neck pickup, a push button kill switch like the Evh guitars have. He also has another mini toggle that changes to value of the single tone knob. I’m not a fan of any of that outside of being able to turn the neck on and off, but I’d do that like the fender ultras with the inner button on the volume knob. It has a 6 point vintage trem on it with a graph tech nut. I’m running a Mesa tc-100 with this, and I can’t really get the strat sound out of the strat. I also want this sound as well, The question is, can it be done, and if so how? Or is it worth starting with something else? I can upload some pics if needed. Any help would be appreciated.
