Ok so I'm going to be getting a Fender American Standard Strat soon. I already know that maple fretboards are smoother and rosewood fretboards have more warmth and sustain. The problem is, I like the look of the maple fretboards much more, but I want a very warm, thick, and full sound. I plan to replace the stock pups with Fralin Blues Specials, but is there anything else I can do to give me a warmer sound other than pups and fretboard? I'm only talking about what can be done to the guitar, not amps and pedals. I hope this makes sense. Thanks!
