OK, so I'm deciding between just these two and I'm just not sure... I like all the demos I hear of the Area '58 and the Area '67
It's an HSS setup on an Alder Strat body with a one-piece maple neck and a non-recessed Floyd setup (old German Floyd from the run they did in the '80s where the bridge plate was a bit thinner). It's going to have 500K volume with a 250K tone each for the neck and middle (no tone on the bridge).
I like my neck pickups bright but still full. I like a lot of quack in the neck/middle combo.
Probably my favorite Strat neck tone is in my Ash hardtail Strat with a real Fender Greybottom in the neck and a 500K volume (another HSS setup). That makes me think '67, but I'm also thinking that the Floyd might reduce the mids a bit so the '58 might compensate for that.
What would you guys go for?
