I have an American series strat, alder body and maple neck/fretboard, with tremolo bridge. I was thinking about installing two humbuckers, a JB in the bridge and a 59 in the neck.
I have read mixed reviews of these pickups in an alder strat though. Some people like them and others say they are too bright. What are your opinions?
I play a bit of punk, classic rock and a bit of blues. Are these pickups suited to these styles? If not what would you recommend?
I would also like the pickups to have a nice clean sound too.
I currently have the AmSe stock single coils in, which I quite like, but just want something a bit more meatier. I definately want proper humbuckers rather than single coil sized pickups.
My amp is a Marshall 40w DSL, would this effect my choice in pickups?
Any help/advice would be appreciated
