    I'm just wondering what Dimarzio pups you guys have in your strats, both humbuckers and singles, and how do you like them?

    Once again, I find myself working a fifty hour weeks in a job I have little love for the summer. Why you might ask? Well, that comes down to my fanatical quest for great tone, and my addiction to expensive equipment. For the last for years I've been slowly building my dream rig, and I feel that...

    I bought this the other day and it need a little bit of work. The Bridge was tarnished but after a little polish and eblow grease it shines very nice. Frets were in good shape but need a leveling so I did that (my first time) and a good job I must say so. A little Fret Doctor on the fingerboard...

    I have a Surf green (MIM) 1999 '57 Stratocaster. I love the feel, and the maple 'v' neck, and the tone is good...but the stock pickups make that "noise". I would like a good replacement set (all 3) for this guitar that keep the Strat-Fender tone but have more flexibility toward humbucker-like...

    Okay so its new guitar time. The white one started life as a 2002 MIM I got cheap off the 'bay. I got a Mighty Mite neck for it, some Fender locking tuners, a Seymour Duncan JB Jnr, Lil 59 and Duckbucker, some graph tech saddles, an electronices upgrade kit that apparently comprises some of the...
  7. Pickups & wiring
    I have an american standard strat with a tonezone S at the bridge. Since I play in two/three different projects (dance/funk commercial music with classic strat tones needed, hard rock band and classic rock trio with more dinamics in the songs) I wanted to "boost" the signal of my main axe by...
  8. Pickups & wiring
    Okay, so I have a Warmoth custom body here, and I need help deciding which pickups to use. First off, I'm using an H-S-H top-routed body, and so far I've decided on a Humbucker from Hell in the neck slot and a Class of '55 in the middle slot. In the bridge slot, though, I'm totally in the air...

    okay ive decided im officially saving for a really nice HSS strat (on a student budget :P ) can anyone tell me what the differences between a Fender American series and American Deluxe series strat are? I'm not really interested in the aesthetic differences, just how they differ in tone and...
  10. Pickups & wiring
    I have my Mexi strat here, and was thinking about swapping the body out and keeping the neck. I was thinking Evolution neck/Hot Noiseless middle/Evolution bridge. I am set on the neck and middle, but the bridge is my main area of question. I want a bridge pickup that does better rhythm work, as...
  11. Pickups & wiring
    Here's what I was thinking: Neck: DiMarzio Breed Neck Middle: Fender Hot Noiseless Stratocaster Pickup Bridge: DiMarzio Breed Bridge as far as this combo goes, I LOVE the breed pickups, and for the middle I wanted something that does clean amazingly well (especially with the neck) but can...

    Okay, I was considering ordering from Warmoth, and here's what I've been thinking -Alder Strat Body -Sonic Blue/Alpine White paint job (can't decide yet) -Ibanez Breed Neck and Bridge pickups -Tortoise Shell Pickguard -Fender 6-Screw Vintage bridge/American Fender Bridge -Warmoth Pro halfsawn...

    Which would be the guitar for you? For me it would be a PRS, they are very versatile, top quality, sound great, & they look GREAT!

    Anyone heard the seymoure duncan antiquity pickups? How about the parallel axis?
  15. Pickups & wiring
    I've been wondering about this for a while. I know Vai uses them, but I've really never had the opportunity to listen to him for long. Anyone care to enlighten me? I'm just wondering what sort of sound they get and how they work with body wood. I've heard they sound really '90s metal and have a...

    Okay, I've narrowed my next guitar purchase down to one of a few signature strats. I'm particularly interested in the Malmsteen as the neck was much easier to get used to than I originally thought. Anyway, if any Malmsteen strat owners can chime in, here is my short list of dumb questions: 1...

    Neck from a mid 80's charvel #4 combined with a stock 01 MIM strat. I absolutely love it. Classic strat tone and a modern neck that you can shred on if you have to. :D I have to treat the board and polish the frets but boy it plays great.

    I have a fender that i never use anymore because the tremolo likes to go out of tune and i recently got an rg2570, i want a guitar with a gotoh tremolo so i've been thinking about putting one in the fender but i feel like i'd be killing resale value and kinda defiling my american strat, opinions?

    OK guys, the "Are JEMs overrated" thread has got me thinking, I think the JEM is overpriced (in the UK anyway) but certainly not over rated, in fact I can't think of anything that's actually a better all round rock guitar. So... What do you think is the best all round rock guitar that money...

    Hey all! yes, im an addict. Well i was on holiday in sydney last week and i was in a music store and something grabbed my attention, i had a spare 3 ply fender guard at home and wanted to do something with it. I spotted these and had always been interested in them as they are the same as the...
