Well hav finally decided to get the bridge pickup changed on the strat. Why: 1: Want to add variety to my playing style. Enough of playing soft..Want to get into sum heavy playin as well 2: Bridge pickup is a single coil which is really noisy. 3: When distortion is ON i cant keep the switch on 5th position(bridge single coil)..It gets too noisy 4: I get excellent pinch harmonics on 5th position but again .... with lot of noise(hum). So i end up playing on 4th position which kills the harmonics drastically OptionPassive Pickups only) as per my choice.... DiMarzio DP160 Norton Bridge Guitar Pickup (Alnico 5) Dimarzio Breed series (Alnico 5) Dimarzio Evolution 2 series(Ceramic Magnets)..not sure if i want this trebbly p'up Desired output: 1: Need excellent harmonics 2: Less noisy 3: Should maintain the warmth for CLEAN TONES as well Questions:- 1: What would happen to the 5 way switch..How shud that behave? 4th position can still be used right with 1p'up from the bridge and middl p'up??? 2: Do i need to change volume pots or any other circuitry incase if i am getting high output pickups? 3: Will a humbucker fit in a single coil slot?
