G'day lads. Been a long time lurker of this forum and thought it about time I actually joined.
What I really like about this forum is the advice provided. Always excellent.
Anyhow, I am in the process of chasing the "ultimate strat tone" for my 08 American Standard.
I've got two of Fender Custom shop 69's and a Dimarzio Super D in my other 1994 deluxe which are fantastic but on this axe I want true vintage for that real 62 type tone. You guys now, chime, bell like, quak etc. I am going to use this Strat primarily for clean tones ala Frusciante, Hendrix, Knofler etc.
I was pretty set on the Antiquity Surfers and then I stubbled across these.
This guy seems to put a lot of effort in trying to create something special and he is also a fellow Aussie.
What do you guys think?
I should mention too as it obviously has an impact but I play through a Laney GH50L all tube head and a Laney Celestion v30 loaded cab.
I know the "ultimate strat tone" is of course different for everyone but any help/suggestions would be fantastic.
