    I'm reassembling an old Strat for jamming purposes and this time, it's just about cutting through - which, of course, is mainly an amp thing, but every little helps :D
    I'm going with an HH setup with a JB in the bridge.
    For the neck, I've got a 59 and a Jazz and am wondering... which one has more mids? Which one will be heard better?

    They're nearly identical pickups. I think the distinction is mostly a marketing thing, with one meant to be sold along side the JB and the other marketed as a PAF replica.
