I'm looking for two specific tones...
This is for a strat. I have a JB jr. in the bridge. What I'm looking for in the neck is a single-coil tone that has that real bluesy, almost texas-style, wah-like lead tone. Typical of neck position single coil in a strat, but yet with more balls and more of the aforementioned wah-like tone. Mind you, I play high gain, and this pickup will mostly be used for soloing.
For the middle, I want something that sounds very clear and defined for single-picked clean notes. I use the middle pickup for clean tones, both rhythm and single-note picking, so I want something that is really clear and perhaps even bell-like without being too harsh on the high end. So, I suppose it would have to be a pretty dynamic pickup. Also, if this could handle light amounts of distortion for rhythm, that would be sweet.
If anyone could help me, that'd be great!
Oh yes, and both need to be noiseless or close to it
