    Goal: crsipy, boingy, Strat-like wound strings and smooth but articlulate upper strings with minimal plinkiness to relieve the cause of that grating, topend harshness on overdrive. i.e. cut the glassiniess on the top without muting the strings open sound.

    Solution?
    a) a pup with dual coils only under the plain stings? stacked hb style
    b) remove half the slugs and magnet from a regular hb?

    Or, has someone already marketed another the cure for this?

    If you're talking about splitting a HB with real authentic single coil tones, Lindy Fralin already did it.

    Unbucker!

    With real single coil tone on the bottom strings and real hb tone on the top end. The ultimate Strat/LP in a single pup!!! Where is it?
