strat pickups

    I've really been considering picking up an actual Fender Strat. Don't want to spend real money so I'd likely wind up with a MIM for $300. I have 2 540-s, and was thinking of putting different pickups in 1 any ways (OL finish and maple neck). Thinking if I select pickups and wire with...

    I picked up 7620 and I don't plan to pursue the 7-string style. So I've strung it as x B E A D F# B, and I'm liking the tuning. This works when I play Journey songs -- I can change the key and sing the songs without changing fingerings. A friend suggested stringing my extra RG570 this way...

    In my quest for the ever-cool "swiss army knife" I stumbled upon an idea based on a pair of unfortunate incidents. Let me preface by letting you all know that I have a cool Steinberger GS with a Sustainiac in it, my Bernie Rico Jr. has a piezo bridge with coil-tapped EMGs, I have a Suhr on the...

    I finally found love with my RG1570 after putting a Tone Zone in the bridge and a Breed in the neck. But After trying endless pickups in the middle position, (chopper, air norton s, blue velvet) I can't seem to find one I like. So I've decided to put it back to 5 way switching and give it a...

    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...

    I was at Greg Koch's masterclass last night - not due to ability, I hasten to add, but because I consistently cover the payments on the store owner's Mercedes - where he was playing the new VG Strat. With a skill set like his, you could make any axe sound fantastic, but this instrument is...

    So it seems that pretty much everybody agrees that the Vintage Noiseless pickups suck. But I was wondering about the SCN pickups. Anybody who has used them, what do you think? Are they any better than the Vintage Noiseless (as Fender would have us believe)? Do they sound like Strat pickups...

    I have an Ibanez Auto Filter pedal to trade. It is kind of like an autowah but it can do other sounds as well. I'm looking for a compressor pedal or delay pedal. I'm a big fan of the Ibanez "L" series and "10" series pedals so if you have one of those to trade let me know. I would also...
