Best bridge humbucker for a strat?!
Im considering two new guitars here:
The American Special Mahogany-bodied HSS Strat
The American Deluxe HSS Strat.
The first has (of course) a mahogany body, and the second (of course) has an alder body. Both will have (of course) maple necks, and rosewood fretboards.
The stock bridge humbuckers are ok, but not as good as a good ol' DiMarzio. I like a warm, fat, yet screaming tone, that can clean up when the volume on the guitar is rolled down.
I also love that DiMarzio "aw" sound.
I currently own a JS1000BP, and the Fred in the bridge is ok, I like its harmonics and "aw," but its just too Satch!
My amp is a Carvin V3 through an Avatar 2x12 with Vintage 30s.
For the mahogany strat, Im thinkin a Norton.
For the alder, Im thinkin a Tone Zone, Air Zone, or Breed.
Any suggestions? Thanks guys!
