Hey guys, I posted something similar to this on the guitar gear forum focusing more on the gear aspect of the sound... I am trying to start a punk-esque with pop and midwest emo influences (think husker du meets cap'n jazz). I've been playing a 2005 MIM strat for many years and it just doesn't seem to cut it for me anymore. I am really looking for a bright crunchy tone so I'm thinking I should stick to single-coil pickups. Any ideas?
That's a pretty strange genre :') If the Strat ain't cutting it, try something with humbuckers, see how ya like it.
