I am fairly sure the Lonestar has a 250k tone pot for the neck.
Would replacing it with a 500k help at all....or does it produce other issues?

Gilmour and Satriani, well my favourite Gilmour tones are FS1 in neck and my favourite Satch would be paf pro in the bridge. Not at all sure how they would go together though.

Personally, my favourite HSS is VHPaf, FS1, FS1.  You could think of it as Gilmour and Van Halen.

I can speak to the Chopper vs. Satch. I've got in the neck of one guitar and plan on getting it in the neck for 2 more guitars. It's my favorite "high power" single coil.

Under high gain, the Satch Track is clear, not muddy or overly bright. It retains more of that single coil type tone when compared to the Chopper which sounds a little too thick and heavy to me. The Satch Track also sounds even more single coil like when it's split.

I have it matched up with a 36th Ann bridge pickup by the way.

Thanks for the help guys.
Those that have experience with both.
Would you say the Satch Track is a tad less bright as to the Fast Track 1?
Are the numbers on the Dimarzio page (b/m/t/) a fairly good way to measure
two similar pickup...or is the output level more important to keep an eye on?

Will mess with the wiring this weekend as well.

Thanks man! The whole stream is available to "watch again" for anyone that missed it. I'm the opening speaker but I'm on around the 50 minute mark or so.

I think the Satch Track might work out for you but I'd try the Air Norton S in parallel mode first since you already have one.

The pickup could be a Fred or a PAF Pro but based on the multimeter reading it's likely a PAF Pro with one set of the allen screws replaced as a mod of some sort.

It's great when I switch it to single coil..but figure I should have something I like in both positions.


have you tried in parallel? however, in 24.75" I find this too muddy in an all maple neckthrough.

IMHO fast track I (not II) would be fine.
