  • Strat Pickups

    I am making a Strat out of Ebay parts. I am going to put in a (from neck to bridge) SHH pickup configuration. What kind of pickups should I use? I want to model the sound of Eric Clapton and Stevie Ray Vaughan.

    I dunno, but every time I have seen Clapton or Vaughan play a strat, it was S-S-S. So I would think you would want that config if that's who you want to sound like.

    but seriously, don't you think just maybe, possibly, quite interestingly enough, it could be YOU?

      Well, I was speaking more of the neck single coil when I spoke of them (I should have been more specific). I have the humbuckers to get more of a rock sound. So it goes like this

      Single Coil: Model SRV and Clapton
      Humbuckers: Model more alternative artists.

        this set up can do it all. HSS configuration with a Deaf-Eddie FAT HSS switch. It gives you the stock HSS selects; splits the bridge humbucker to give you standard strat switching; gives you the neck/bridge combo and some series/parallel combos...

          I have old Tokai strat pickups in at the moment. If you want that raw strat sound that's the way to go it think.

          You should talk to this guy:

          http://www.ocduffpickups.com/

          I asked him to make a set of tele pickups to custom order. Just described what I wanted them to sound like. He knows his stuff. And they sound great!

          Mr Duff also makes replacement steve ray pickups to the EXACT spec.

          Check it out.
