      Hello There,

      I was hoping you might be able to help me.

      I have a HSS Strat and wanted to know if you have tried the Fender Vintage Noiseless Pickups with a Dimarzio 36th Anniversary Humbucker?

      Manly concerned with volume drop between bridge and Middle.
      And of course the Strat quack on the Bridge/Middle.

      Any help is greatly appreciated,

      Thanks,

      Gerry.


      Hey Gerry...I'm not sure if I had answered your question already...but here goes....

      I do not have any of my guitars with the combo of FVN and the Dimarzio 36 PAF.
      I do however have the FVN with a Gibson 57 Classic PLus and a Gibson 498T.....both of which are more powerful pickups than the DiMarzio. I have not had a problem with the volume differences between the two!
      It's all about adjusting the HB pickup height in comparison with the single coil pups.
      It also helps that no matter how "powerful" the other pickups are....the magnet in both of the aforementioned humbuckers are AlNico.
      |I HATE ceramic magnet pickups and find them too powerful for my taste.......those WILL cause a drastic volume difference when combined with single coils.
      AlNico magnets are powerful but not overbearing...and you could work with them...

      Hope that helps.......Rich
