Re: Fender strat and dimarzio hs2 or hs3 in bridge

HS-2 is a slightly hotter pickup that a standard strat single coil.
A HS-3 is a bit hotter then a HS-2.
I've found that both pickups are not really vintage strat like.

Are you going for Kotzen's early tone or more recent with his tele's and strats?

If you want a true vintage type of tone, but without the noise and hum i would suggest Suhr V54 or a bit more modern sounding V60's.
