Who has done it? Explain why you did and why I should. I do love my strats but there are times where I'm "missing something". I just love "thick" sounding guitar tone. I'm a blues player btw
I just go through moods. /QUOTE]
Do you necessarily want to sound like an LP? Are you just looking for a generic HB sound? Or do you want your Strat, just fatter?
If I just want fatter I use a $49 Duncan Pickup booster. It's a pretty good clean boost, sounds like your guitar only louder. Then there's a switch (resonance maybe?) to fatten it up and it actually does just that, but without coloring the sound of your rig. It's just thicker.
I think Gibson fat is as much scale lenth as HBs. To me it's a different tool altogether and it pushes me to play it very differently(varying shades of awful). It's almost a vacation after fighting a Strat but after awhile I miss that airy Fender thing. So the only logical solution to your delimma is to have one of everything. It's simple.
