Okay guys i need your help. I have a fender standard strat and im looking into putting these pickups into it:


http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/DiMarzio-DP420-Virtual-Solo-Bridge-Hum-Cancelling-Strat-Pickup?sku=340007


http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/DiMarzio-DP175-True-Velvet-Single-Coil-Neck-Pickup?sku=360784

These are the two. I cant find the a link for the other one.


Basically, will these pickups help suit my tastes. Im into rock, some heavy metal, along with some blues and funk. Any suggestions?

what kind of amp do you have. if you have a tube amp you will notice a difference if you have a solid state amp you wont notice any difference and you would be better off getting a new amp first.

I'd recommend a normal sized humbucker in the bridge, like a Seymour Duncan TB-11, for your heavy metal playing.
Blues and funk should exclusively be played on the neck pickup.

Get that amp upgrade first. BTW, it's not because your amp's a solid state, it's because your amp's a ****ty solid state.
Make a post in the GGA when you're ready to get a new amp, so people can help find a good one.
