Old Music Guy Posted February 28 Share Posted February 28 I bought this guy a while ago: 2006 MIM Strat with a Floyd Rose Special II bridge. It came with an upgraded 22 fret rosewood neck with locking nut. I have locking tuners, which sounds like overkill with the locking nut. As you can see, it has a "tombstone" rout, so any P/U combo will fit comfortably. I'm asking for pickup suggestions to fill a spot. I have a Fender Strat Highway 1 that's loaded with 3 SD SSL1s. Perfect quack. Very Niles Rogers. My recent build with SD SSL 1, 3 and 5. Nice mellow chimey sound, but a little dark. I have a Tele that's perfectly fills that spot. I have a Firefly SG-style which I dropped in a set of SD Pearly Gates. I love the tone, but I'm just not a "chunky neck" guy. As it's a Gibson 2V, 2T setup, I can most ever tone I dsire. I just don't like the neck. What I would really like is something that straddles the Trower/Gillmore tone. Big, fat and round, with great harmonics and chime. Big ask, I know. But I would welcome suggestions. I am partial to SD, but, I'm not married to them. I prefer single coils, but the PGs are pretty awesome for HBs. 1 Quote What?
