How do you make a "fatter" strat, esp in the bridge? I have 2 - newer and older 54 Strat RI. One already has the Callaham pots, switches, and jacks put in - and that has made it fuller and sweeter. The pups in one are Fender FAT 50s I believe, and they do sound good. NECK/Middle - I want a "Fatter" strat. Not fat to the point of being humbuckers, but warm, still stratty, and nice hollow quack in 2 & 4. Bridge - Here is a major discussion point. I have a Franken-Strat with a Gibson 57 Classic (Series/Parallel switch) in it AND a 54 Strat RI with a Seymour Duncan Lil 59 in it. The Lil 59 works nice but is a little nasally, yet has somem strat twang and bite. BOTH guitars SUFFER in position 4, and I blame the HB's. The STOCK single coil is so classic and bitey, BUT with the wrong rig or provided backline - I can be STUCK with a shrill, thin sound all nite. I think its time to keep a classic Strat bridge. How does Gilmour, Gallagher, etc etc get such a fat bridge tone? SOOOOOO... 1) I could wire the tone to the bridge, but then do I have the tone still goto the middle? 2) do I get a Fralin baseplate? 3) Maybe a Dimarzio VV Solo in the bridge or somethign P90 like? 4) How about a Duncan Twangbanger, Rio Stelly (sp?), or anything that gives a TELE like thickness? I LOVE 52 RI Teles and NOcasters 5) Go with a Single Coil sized HB because there is no choice?
