I've decided to pimp yet another Strat. :D
This time I'm going for what I like to be "classy versatility".
It's has to be an S-S-S Setup, so I'm rolling with rail-type pickups.
The original idea was to put DiMarzio Air Norton S (new 2007 model)
in the bridge and a pair of Cruisers in the neck and middle respectively.
I kinda dig Andy Timmon's sound (he uses a Cruiser in the neck) and it
does sound really fat, warm and smooth. However, the reason for this
might be his overall setup (Mesa Boogie amp, mahogany guitar, etc.).
So, basically, Cruiser seems to be a really low output pickup on it's own.
So now I'm considering something hotter and sort of more fluid for the neck.
What do you think about a Cool Rail? And then there's a Chopper from DiMarzio.
How does Chopper compare to the Cool Rail? What other ideas you got?
All comments are greatly appreciated as always! Peace.
