  • So what's your favourite single coils?

    My two favourites are Fender Custom shop 69's and Curtis Novak hand winds, with the Novaks being my favourite out of them.

    I love the 69's and have a neck and middle with a Dimarzio Super Distortion in the bridge. I love how raw and woody they are, just prefect for blues and Hendrix of course.

    The Novaks just blow me away ever time I plug them in. I have never truly loved every position on a Strat until I got these. Just magic tone both clean and driven.

    I've used BG, Aniquities, Fralin and Bareknuckles but for me the 69's and the Novaks are the ****************.

    The funny thing is that I don't like like the tone I get out of the singles on my Laney GH50L but they sound fantastic through my Laney Lionheart.

    So what's your favourite.

        I have a set of Fender Custom shop something or another in my 66' CS strat. They are about the strattiest sounding pickups I've had in a strat in a long time. I even put in a treble bleed cap so I can roll the volume off and clean up without losing treble.

              I'm in love with my Fralin Vintage Hots and SP43.

                Fat 50's.............hands down for me.



                Never tried those, but would love too. Unfortunately I would need another Strat cause the Novaks and 69's aint coming out.

                Good reason to buy another one I say.

                  I'm not sure what's in my Eric Johnson strat, but they sound AWESOME. When I bought it a few years ago I was planning on getting the American Deluxe. But when I plugged in the EJ strat out of curiosity I was like, "Aw crap, there goes a few hundred more dollars.". I had to have it instead. The middle pickup is especially awesome for some reason.

                      Its a toss-up between Dimarzio YJM/HS3 and whatever came in my buddy's MIM Fender Strat.

                      least favorite were whatever pickups Fender was sticking in Strats back in the 70s, thin and harsh

                          The Lindy Fralin Blues Specials in my Tele are very nice.

                            I think the Eric Johnson Strat has custom Eric Johnson pickups.
