This is my 1st post in these parts.
So, I got a MIM Fender '60s Classic Strat which I love
to death. It's one of these mexican models that somehow
sounded ridiculously good out of the box. Anyways, I've
decided to upgrade it. What I'm looking for is a distinctive
true-single-coil Stratocaster tone, preferably a vintage
one. After a careful research I'm currently considering
SD AII Surfers as my primary candidate.
What do you think?
And now to the actual question.
The neck pickup comes as is, but middle and bridge
pickups sport two variations - either a standard one
or rw/rp & extra output for the middle and bridge respectively.
Given the fact that besides blues, surf and classic rock I also
play heavier stuff, the custom bridge seems like a no-brainer.
Which middle pickup variation I want to have and in what cases?
All explanations will be greatly appreciated.
