You see...I'm thinking of finally graduating from HSS to SSS...but I still want something slightly humbucker-ish in the bridge.
The neck has never been a problem IMO...neither the middle, they always sound great on most Strats I've played...but the bridge man...it's hard to find the right one!!
I've been looking at the DiMarzio HS-3. The HS-3 sounds rather smooth and maybe just a tad too dark so it might fit. That said I just want something that isn't 100% vintage A5 Strat...not quite as middy as the A2's I've tried either (Texas Special...too throaty....). I'm looking for something noiseless that has some treble rolled off. Kinda smooth, clear and definitely NOT too middy. Noiseless I think would be very helpful...almost necessary, since I still want some mean badass tones out of my guitar...I don't really play Drop-C balls out crank it up to 10 metal anymore...but I still wanna be able to rock out!
BTW, I want something that looks like a classic single, no rails or stuff like that, and we're talking strict bridge pup...with the neck/mid I don't really care about the noise.
Anything slightly off what I asked would be considered...just tell me your success stories with single coils in the bridge!
