Well guys. I ordered a regular SSS Std. Strat, and a Vox AC15 C1... :-) now i just have to play the waiting game... I'll consider if i want a humbucker at a later time, when i've gotten to know the guitar better

Thanks for your advises

i see you already ordered it, but I was going to go with SSS as well, and if you don't like the bridge pu I can *highly* recommend a DiMarzio Injector bridge...it is just amazing and bridges the gap to a humbucker while still sounding like a SC.

Also, like someone above mentioned, use the tone knob for the bridge as it'll help a lot when using distortion.

no they frigging don't. they're wired in parallel that way, so for a start they're nothing like a humbucker, they actually are *lower* output than having either single coil on its own. Which is an escellent idea if you're trying to get more of a humbucker-type tone, which is higher in output than a single coil.

about the only way it's like a humbucker is that it's noiseless- and even that is an assumption, because not all middle pickups are RWRP (admittedly, most are on modern spec guitars).

anyway - congrats on your new gear TS. You can always modify later as mentioned.

make sure you do a NAD thread over in Guitar Gear and Accessories once you get a chance to get some clips, pics and a review
