Is this the right forum for pickup questions - lol or will it be lost among the pedal threads? Here goes: I'm a strat player; i have les pauls but just not my thing. But I'm jonesing for humbuckers so i'm thinking about turning a tele into a 2 HB arrangement (alder body maple neck and fb). I don't care so much about boutique brands etc, but would like some input - seymour duncan and dimarzio is about the right price range...and i'm not really interested in the value brands. what I *don't* want: - muddy lows - crazy high output (work well with a rig set up for strats) - big mid boost - don't need a straight up vintage correct PAF type sound what i *do* want: - clarity in the high end..needs to cut through well and not be farty/boomy - moderate output in the bridge...enough to overdrive well but not so much that it won't clean up - i like P90s and especially filter tron type tones, but not something i want all the time...but i do like the snap and snarl. maybe there is a HB set that is the best of both worlds? - the last HB guitar i had was a PRS CE24 with vintage bass/HFS combo and it worked pretty well for me what about a combo like SD Jazz and Pearly Gates? Other?
