Hey guys I've registered here because I need some advise from you regarding pick-ups.
I'd like to buy a MIM Standard Stratocaster (all Single Coil) and as I've heard the standart PUs sometimes sound good, sometimes pretty crappy. So I looked for some replacement pickups here at Seymour Duncan and was wondering if the following setup would work:
Neck: Cool Rails Humbucker
My musical taste is quite vast. It goes from a little Classic Rock (Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin) to Hard Rock bands like AC/DC, Guns N Roses/Slash to Alternative (Red Hot Chili Peppers) and a little to Blues Rock stuff like for example John Mayer (not the greatest blues guitarist I know but I like his bluesy stuff nevertheless).
So you see I'd like to have a very versatile guitar since I have tendencies in all those directions.
Do you think that this setup would suit those styles?
Do those PUs work well together (also refering to how they sound in positions 2 and 4)?
And would you recommend other pickups to me that would fit better into the setup or that would suit my needs better?
I know this is all very much information and many questions but I'd be so glad if someone could help me with this.
Thanks very much in advance!
