Hey there rocker friends!!

I've joined GuitarMasterClass about a year now and since then i've been having this cheap (but relativelly good for it's price) Stagg Fender-style guitar. Since August I moved to India for my studies and in the town where I am staying is a luthier making extraodinary electric guitars. The particularity is that those guitars are very cheap for what they are worth.

Usually it is a one-piece mohagony (or red cedar) body with rosewood fretboard and 12 layers painting, with very good pickups, vibrato and locking tuners costs (everything entirely handmade) for about 1000 euros. Everything is custom, from the body's shape to the woods and pickups.

I know that I am relatively beginner but I probably won't find such an deal anywhere, and I really like playing guitar and I was planning to buy a new guitar anyway. I feel that having such a good and nice looking guitar will push me to study this instrument hard and progress rapidly.

Now I roughly have got all the specs of the guitar in my head: a yamaha shaped body made of a single piece mahogany, rosewood fretboard, sunburst painting, and customized fender-type neck (flatter at buttom to access high notes and 1mm wider than Strats to prevent the high E and low E strings from sliding from the fretboard).

For the pickups a High output pickup and two low output single coil seem the best for me.

Now, I am not a very experienced player, and I am not very sure wich pickups I need exactly.

The styles I like go from blues (especially distorded blues, like Gary Moore or Jimmi Hendrix) to rock (modern bands like RHCP), and hard-rock (Led Zep, Deep Purple, ACDC, and even Black Sabbath in some aspects).

So basically a high output pickup for hard-rock/rock distorded sound, and two other ones for a warmer bluesy sound.

I am not aiming at playing heavy metal or any very "dirty sound" music.

Now this luthier told me about those very good pickups he is working with: Lindy Fralin. Now I am not completely sure I need THAT good pickup, since I don't have an unlimited budget^^

Can you guys help me out wondering what kind of pickup I need? Maybe a Gibson P90 and two fender single coils?

Thanks in advance guys smile.gif
