I have 2 MIA Fender Stratocasters and I want to change their pickups for heavy metal. Generally I love Iced Earth, Iron Maiden, Megadeth something like that.
For the first guitar which has rosewood fingerboard, I want to install Seymour Duncan Hot Rails set for all positions. At that point I want to ask a few questions.
* Should I change my pots 250k to 500k ? If yes, is it enough to change volume pot only ? Or do you recommend to change volume and tone pots ? Which product ( Fender, CTS, DiMarzio ) should I have to choose ?
* What do you think about this setup ? Hotrails SHR1b for the bridge, Vintage Rails SVR-1n for the middle and Cool Rails SCR-1n for the neck position.... Another option is Hot Rails for all positions.
My another guitar has maple neck and I want to install " everything axe set " with 250k pots.
Please don't recommend me to use real humbucker guitars, because I'm a real fanatic of Fender Stratocasters...
Thanks in advance...
