Members EJD Posted January 4, 2010 Members Share Posted January 4, 2010 So, I'm lookin' for some single coil pups. On the neck and middle, I'd like that good old vintage Strat tone... think: [YOUTUBE]vQxxBGb2uSE[/YOUTUBE] [YOUTUBE]gjJzlIedCuo[/YOUTUBE] And, on the bridge, I need high output... power... great hard sound with distortion/heavy overdrive: [YOUTUBE]qb8JKV88Z2s[/YOUTUBE] [YOUTUBE]OqQOaA2LPRo[/YOUTUBE] But, here's the thing. I don't like unconventional-looking pickups, at least not on Strats. Hot Rails, or the Little '59 for example. I like the classic six-polepiece thing... and, I really dig the way the solid cover no-polepiece Lace Sensor looks: So, in a nutshell. On the middle and neck positions, I'd like a real vintage sound, that Dire Straits/SRV tone. And on the bridge, I need a high-output single coil that sounds beefy and heavy with distortion. The tone Jeff Beck gets in the first few strums of What Mama Said, in the video just up there, is godlike. And the pickups have gotta be either six-polepiece or solid cover. Yeh, I'm picky, but I'm a perfectionist... any help would be appreciated! Cheers Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
