Hi guys and gals, I recently acquired a parts strat, (maple neck & alder body) and I am thinking of upgrading the pickups. currently it has - dimarzio Virtual solo in the bridge. It’s way too thin and bright for me. - dimarzio Area 58 in the middle. Pretty average sounding, not great, not awful - dimarzio Heavy Blues in the neck. Not bad, not great. I’ve messed with the p/u heights and it’s sounding about as good as it ever will. I’m running a Mesa TC-100 pretty much exclusively into channel 1 as a pedal platform and it sounds fantastic with my mahogany bodied strat with juiced P90s. The s/s/s doesn’t sound bad, it’s mainly the bridge position pickup that’s more or less useless without dramatic eq change on the amp. I attempt to play a wide range of rock music but bought the guitar mainly for gilmour and knofler tones, but I’d like to be able to play heavier stuff with it as well. My thoughts are the put the Duncan ssl5 matched set that Gilmour uses and be done with it. As always though, I would appreciate any thoughts or suggestions you guys might have.
