just bought a black epi dot studio!!! anyways on topic right now have a HH strat with dirty fingers in the bridge, but recently been using the neck pickup when i play, messing around, I used to hate the tone from the neck pickup but ive really grown to like it, anyways I am planning on swapping the dirty fingers over to the dot's bridge but I dont want another one for the strat, so what would be a good pickup for the strat's bridge? for all my trebly stuff I will use the dirty fingers dot, but I want a new sound out of my strat, and for the record I play rock mainly, but dabble into other stuff as well. thanks.

Get a new pickguard and slab in a DiMarzio HS-3 or YJM ? Thats really unique, makes you sounds all Malmsteen n whatnot.

yeh but the guitar needs to be routed for it. maybe a dimarzio pickup if you could afford it


Route? i meant that for him to get an SSS pickguard, or S-x-S if have and make the HS-3 / YJM on the bridge pos. or neck.

the hh configuration is different to the sss as the hh are a bit more in. anyway he probably could get a humbucker that suits his sound

1st of all i would like to apologize to TS coz we steal this thread to CHAT....

The plywood thing? well you can expect top notch setup of hardwares but i cant pretty much do anything bout the wood, haha. I did sorta like Wizard neck line imitation at the back, only larger and red flamejob on the headstock. Sanded the rosewood fretboard (or what the hell its made out off) and it smells...well...soury and ass. Dunno if thats the smell of actual rosewood coz my Ibanez sure aint hell smell like that.
