That means they don't have a pedal to sell you that controls the amp's INTERNAL settings.

You can use any stompbox you like, so long as you use the clean channel, otherwise things start to go haywire.


Also, it's possible to put humbuckers on a strat, but you have to choose either to route your current pickguard, or buy a new pickguard. Most MIM's are swimming pool routed or routed for superstrat combination anyway.

yep

thats how you do it there is no other way except through an fx loop, if you get an amp with one youll know what it is other than that dont worry about it

and it sounds better this way

Yes.

Strats are easy to customise because almost all of the electronics is fitted to the pickguard. I know that a fair few of the guitar stores near me will do you a custom pickguard.

Where're you based? Because I'm sure some folks would have a reccomendation based on that.

Or try Warmoth.com.

is there any reason for you to have 2 humbuckers.....watching my chemical romance play at download festival last year they only use the bridge humbucker even for solo's (i know this because both of the guitarists have removed the pickup selector switch)

to be honest mate just get a seymour duncan invader pickup (AKA tom delonge) and wire it in yourself thats what i did on my strat and it sounds amazing!!!!....its a pretty easy job too

Stewmac'll do you an H/H strat pickguard for $21.50 in black or white, pearloid or tortoiseshell is $30.70.

Then you just need the humbuckers.

Invaders are horrible, just like the DiMarzio X2N. Unless you like gobs of distortion and don't care about your tone sucking balls. Then go right ahead.
