Every last one of the strats in my collection now has 2 humbuckers and no single coils. I am done with single coils and single buckers and am very satisfied with them now. I have installed 3 way switches, 250k vol pots, and wired everything as simple as possible. No more fuss and I don't miss single coils yet.
Here are all of my strat configurations as they stand now:
Vintage white Strat - Dimarzio Norton/PAF Pro
Black strat - Custom Custom/Jazz
Sunburst strat - Seth Lover/Seth Lover
Charcoal grey strat - Pearly Gates/Jazz
Tungsten strat - JB/59'
Candy red strat - Dimarzio Breed neck/Air Classic neck
I don't hate the 59' like I hate the Little 59, but it wasn't my first choice. However, in some odd way it seems to agree with the JB. That's all they had at the store and I already have two jazz necks so I went ahead and got the 59' just to get all of my upgrades done.
If you notice, I'm using a Dimarzio Breed neck model in the bridge position. This was something Dimarzio suggested when I called them. They swore to me that it makes an outstanding bridge humbucker... they were right. I have only had it for a couple of days but I'm thinking that I like it a bit more than the Breed bridge. It's not as dark, not as hot, and the mids are huge, cutting and warm.
The Air Classic neck is another story. I have this love hate thing going on with it, kind of like the Duncan 59'. At times I think it's flat and kind of dull, but at other times I'll be jamming and love my tone and then I'll look down and remember that it's the Air Classic. It's one of those pickups that's great for a classic PAF Les Paul or ES335 type thing, but not exactly the kind of pickup that brings exciting neck position lead tones. I might switch it out for a PAF Joe.
I'm looking for a replacement for my 59 neck and Air Classic neck so if you have some good suggestions then let me know.
