For all of $120.

It has an ash body with the normal maple neck/rosewood fretboard combo.

But man, does that ash wood sing! it has great bluesy tones & twangs pretty good on the 2 & 4 switch positions. It's nice to have since my other electrics are set up more for Rock/Metal.

I want to put different pickups in it. These are alright, but the guitar just sounds like the stockers are holding it back a little. I'm thinking of installing a Duncan JB Junior in the bridge to get a little better rock tones out of that position, but I really don't know what I want in the middle & neck slots. I want to bring out more of that bluesy twang if I can. Any suggestions?

if you wanna try something that won't blow the budget, give Guitar Fetish a look. I've got some of their vintage strat pickups in one of mine, and really like them.

Fender Texas Specials, no question.

I wonder how their stacks sound? I like the idea of not having so much of that 60 cycle hum, especially when I crank the gain.

Duncan has so many choices that it makes me dizzy.

This setup sounds promising:


From the Seymour Duncan Website:
complete setup
Available for both bridge and neck/middle positions. For an incredibly versatile guitar, use an SVR-1n in the middle position along with an SHR-1b Hot Rails in the bridge and an SCR-1n Cool Rails in the neck.


It has me thinkin'.

David Gilmore ( Pink Floyd) also uses the EMG single coils.they make some that sound just like the classic strat pickups.
