It's not even a strat sound I'm looking for really. Just more "Tone" or "Vibe" or whatever. My old Gibson SG had it, and my '57 Telecaster has it. Tonight I was playing my RG and the neck pickup does give me a little of "that" sound I'm looking for. I'm thinking maybe a Humbucker from hell in the neck position and a Tonezone or Breed in the bridge. Primarily I want a heavy sounding guitar. Just some bluesy tones now and then.
btw: This is an awsome forum!
