I just recently signed up for the forum, and wanted to introduce myself.
My name is Doug, and I live in Maryland. I just started playing my guitars again after a 6 year hiatusand found this forum. I worked in a music store for 7 years after high school, and also played in a couple of local bands.
I recently replaced the pickups in one of my strats with SSL-1's and can't believe I never tried them before. I guess I thought that they would be too close to the stock Am Std pickups... boy was I wrong. It seems like I tried everything else.
I've also got a Charvel San Dimas with a TB-5 in the bridge, and a US Lone Star Strat with the stock PG+ pickup.
I'd like to sell my old strat pickups (Dimarzio VV 2.1 and 2.2), and would also like to trade my TB-5 for a TB-12. I posted ads in the Trading Post.
