Morning so basically I'm thinking whether or not to purchase the FS-1 (fat strat pickup that Dimarzo make) for the bridge on my squire, I checked on the site and it states it's 25% more powerful than stock pick ups. So what's people's experience with these? Are they worth the buy?


Many thanks.

If you go on my profile you'll see I posted a previous thread on "how do I achieve this strat sound", it has a few sound links with what kinda tone I'm after

I prefer Seymour Duncan rather than DiMarzio. I would recommend you to buy the SSL-1. It is an "almost exact" copy of the chimey tone that 60s stratocasters had.

Pickups are always a hard thing. Research is a great thing, and videos and forums can get you really far, but in the end, you have to see how they sound in your guitar with your playing and your gear.

Thanks for the suggestion but I'm after abit more of a fatter sound and not too much of that clean/thin sound

Very true very true, I don't exactly want to jump onto the first things I see, you tube is good if the video review is good. Exactly haha as I may not like them for example

The music in the "My band" link in my sig is a Dirty Harry bridge pup into what is essentially a SLO.


And here's a vid using the same rig:
