Hi, I, like so many others, have ordered a Crazy 8 that I want to put in my MIM Strat.
Currently it is SSS with 250K pots (routed for HSS) so I thought about making a brand new pickguard, only keeping two SC pickups and maybe the 5-way.
Obviously the Crazy 8 will go at the bridge. The current ones are the RW/RP stock Fender MIM and the DiMarzio Fast Track 1 and 2. Obviously one will go, two will stay, I can't be sure which ones though yet (until I put the Crazy 8 in and compare, anyone that has done so is welcomed to chime in ).
However, seeing how I was duped the last time I let it in the previous tech's hands this time I want to know before hand which electronics to put in it, (not only values but brands too!) in order to achieve best results.
I will use this guitar for Blues, a little Jazz, some Rock and a lot of 80s' Metal (the Heavy, Power and Glam types) so I want a guitar that can totally nail the Metal Leads but also can play a mighty blues in the 2 and 4 positions.
What I'd like would be brands and values of all three pots, cap and switch.
P.S. Is there a way to use one switch to split 2 or even 3 humbuckers at once? Might be useful for the notch positions, if not I might get two or even 3 push/pulls.
