This is Whitey. Whitey was born in Mexico in 1990. Many Strats have come and gone (MIM, American and Squiers), but Whitey has always been my #1. I put a Hotrail in the bridge and love it. This is Blackie. Blackie is a Squier born in China in 2000. Blackie is a freak of nature. It has a full width body and plays better than any other Strat I have played. It has a full set of Hotrails in it. Here is where the problem started. I decided I didn't want both guitars to have Hotrails, so I decided to make Whitey a heavy blues guitar. I took out the Hotrail and tried a Seymour Duncan SSL-5 (I had been listening to a lot of Floyd). I didn't give me the tone I wanted. I had a Rio Grande Stelly laying around, didn't like that either. I decided to try a set of YJM fury's, which I found aren't very furious. So now Whitey just hangs on the wall neglected. I don't really want to put the Hotrail back in. I still want a heavy blues guitar, but I have lost motivation to continue to swap pickups. I figure I'll step away for a while. I have no intentions of getting rid of it, but for now, the love is gone. So....when I get around to working on it again, what would be a good pickup to try that would give me awesome sustain and a good heavy blues sound out of single coil. I know it is a subjective subject but I'm just looking for some direction. I was thinking about a Quarter Pound. Any suggestions? Thanks.
