Hello again!

I'm just about changing pickups in my Les Paul, and thought, ahh what the hell, I'll just change in my Stratocaster aswell, and I need some help and suggestions!!


The guitar in mind is a Fender Antigua Stratocaster. I'm thinking of Dimarzio's here, S-S-S. My first setup that came to mind is this:

Bridge: Fast Track 2

Middle: Cruiser

Neck: YJM signature pickup

I'm looking for a very versatile stratsound here, is this any good? Will there be any room for nice blues sound, or should I change combination?

Help is appreciated!

Hey man
Although im not a huge single coil lover these below might do the trick especially since there noiseless (thank god). http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Fen...-Set?sku=301651

Also there is a set called Tex Mex you could look into,but cant speak from experience on these.

Good Luck smile.gif

My Advice
Figure out what you want in life early.Wether it's the girl,the partying
or mastering the guitar.Adding any 2 together will get in your way.

The setup you mentioned looks quite fine,imo.
It's stupid from me to say cause I endorse him,
but you should check Stan Hinesley handwound pickups and send him an email.
His pickups are great and he can make you even custom pickups,
depends of what you need. smile.gif

OK, I think i will go with the Pro Track in the Middle instead of the cruiser. I might switch places with the YJM and the Pro track. but thats a later issue.

Please keep the feedback coming smile.gif

by the way, wich one has most "humbucker" feeling over it, the Fast Track 2 or the SuperDistortion3 singlecoil? I'm looking for added bass and lots of "kachunkkachunk".
