Re: RG370 Pickups question-need advice badly
"In general I'm looking for a distinct bright sound of the low strings with a strong punch and warm thick sound of the high strings also with a strong punch. I find the Stevie Ray Vaughn sound the ultimate blues sound there is. I want to come as close as possible to that with the type of guitar I have. "
Mmmmmmm - bit of an obvious issue there - SRV played either strats, or strats with the old Danelectro Lipstick pickups (I know, I know, he also had a 335.... ) so if your beast has a scratchplate, you could consider getting a custom scratchplate made up with three Fender Texas Specials on it, or three Danelectro Lipsticks (apparently the newies are fantastic) - string her up with 14 - 60s and play through a blackface Fender, or a Marshall Bluesbreaker reissue and you'll start getting closer!
