What pickup are you using as your middle single coil? (HSH) (pics inside!)
Currently I've got these in the guitar:
Bridge - Dimarzio Super Distortion
Middle - Single Coil from a Mexican-made Strat
Neck - Dimarzio Paf Pro
I forgot how weak and useless the stock pickups were on my Mexican strat (or any MiM strat I've ever played...) When I switch to any of the positions that use the middle pickup, it sounds almost as if the pickup isn't even there, or to put it better, it doesn't even sound like a single coil. I had a pro tech do the job w/ new pots and everything so I know its done right, so I blame the lack of tone on the pickup.
I want some major twang and spank when I use that pickup. I know there are a ton to choose from, and I am not partial to any particular brands. Anyone use these two humbuckers with a good matching single in the middle? Or, generally, what are you guys using as your middle pickup in your HSH guitars?
