Re: Pickup Advice for Custom Strat
Sorry about passing the post...
So here I go..
I am listening to rock, blues and metal (except the extreme types of metal)
I am thinking buying an alder body, mexican, rosewood fret (21) HSS strat with floyd rose. And I am thinking to modify the bridge with EVH D-Tuna.
I am not a huge fan of any guitarist but I like to listen, EVH, YJM, Vinnie Moore, John Petrucci, Steve Vai, Steve Morse, Brian May...
At home I am using Guitar Rig 5 with Vox Tonelab Ex and Boss DS-2. In studios, I generally play with Mesa Boogie Rectifier. Once I played with a HSS strat with Mesa and Vox Tonelab the bridge pickup sounded not strong to me.
I have checked the pickup picker in DiMarzio's web site and it recommends the pickups I wrote up.
I am nearly sure about the neck and middle pickups. I guess the The chopper in the neck will be sounded as I want to hear, but I am not sure about the bridge pickup. I want strong mid-bass range pickup. The drop d performance is very important for me also. With my band, we are playing both standard tuning and drop d tuning. So my worries about the drop d performance of the EVO. And the how is the combination of three pickups?
