This is Itespyo! <(^.^)>
My First and main Guitar.



Its a 2001 Fender MIM Strat With a Dirty Fingers Humbucker in the Bridge position.

So, compared to the 2 single coil pups, the Humbucker is just too effing loud(As much as I do love loud).

I'm looking to buy a single-coil sized pickup for the Neck position that can keep up with it volume wise. As for what kind of sound I'm looking for, I want something really clear and won't sound bad with the stock Middle Pup. I play a very wide variety of music. I also use gauge .12 strings, I like the BIG sound!

Plz and thank you! (>^.^)> *hugs

nice guitar stand

not a bad looking guitar. i like the wine red.

about the volume, lower the bridge pickup and raise the neck pickup. that'll fix the sound problem and you won't have to replace the pickups.

I didn't know guitars could take #2's as well.

I would suggest a nice rail (vintage/hot/etc) from Seymour Duncan.

Well, first try lowering it a little bit; you probably have stray harmonics flapping around when you use the bridge position, right?
When you've done that though you may realise that the Dirty Fingers is awful. Try a Seymour Duncan Pearly Gates - shouldn't overpower your single coils and should sound beautiful, as it does in Strat style guitars. Your volume issue will be solved (although you probably won't notice a difference in sound until you get a new amp.

+1. I don't know anything about the Dirty Fingers, but I really like the PG. Sounds great in the... Lonestar (? maybe its Roadhouse) strat with the Texas Special singles.

BDedit: Get at least a decent middle pickup. You can get some really nice sounds from the middle pickup of strats--in fact, it's my personal favorite position.
