The Pickup Place / my new project
« on: September 01, 2012, 01:14:00 pm »
I picked up a yamaha pacifica with H/S/S config.  I threw in my old DMZ Super 2 ( the old school one with the molded case ) and now want to put a couple of stacked s/c in the neck/mid spots.....any suggestions?

Its gonna be a back up to my fender strat that has paf pro/blue velvet/paf pro.
I have few other guitars tailored for their position but this one will be used for classic rock.

I actually grabbed two pacifica's that Im working on --- the other will have SD Lil '59 in the N/M/B positions.

Just lookin at what will work with the Super 2

As everyone may know about my kids ( my kids pt 2 ) in this forum or the the pickup place local -- whittie, my 3 single coil guitar has died the other day.

She was a 2 piece ( like a sandwich ) body with a big head 21 fret maple board neck and 3 SSL-3 SD p'ups.....

Well, for some reason, the body separated at the I wish to introduce----- CANDIE --- my 20th ANN Squier strat body w/ the big head 21 fret neck and DiMarzio Super 3 and 1 vol and it plays like butter......

She's on the left --- the others ( honey,vickie,dimmie ) you guys should know about

I have an all DiMarzio pickguard that Im about to install into my new project.  Right now, the pickguard consist of:

1 dimarzio 500k vol
2 dimarzio 500k tone
2 dimarzio mini toggle switches
1 dimarzio 5 way switch
2 dimarzio paf pro humbuckers

I need a resident for the middle position of my H-S-H pickguard.
What I have to offer is a Dimarzio Super 3 and a older Dimarzio Super 2 for trade for a hum cancelling single coil, such as area 61, or something that can go with the PP.  Right now Im looking at a Virtual Vintage Blues Dp 402 on ebay, but if you have anythign to offer - please let me know

Im building an alder body strat ( H S S ), yea I know, so is everyone else ( lol ).  Anywho, DiMarzio PAF PRO bridge or Super 3.

My question is : Pro Track and Fast track or Fast track and chopper?

Classic rock to rock to some heavier stuff.

Kinda wanna keep in line with my other 2 guitars:
  Les Paul with Seymour Duncan Alnico Pro 2 and 1950's wiring
  Frankenstrat with Air Zone (neck) and Tone Zone (bridge)

I lied to my boss saying that I was sick and jumped in my car and road tripped to Corona CA to the fender factory....WHAT A BLAST.  Even better, I met and shook hands with the infamous Abby Ybarra.  It was alot of fun.  I even got to watch her hand wind pickups at her desk.  A very sweet old lady.  And yes, it was literally by hand as the spool of wire was fed to the bobbin, she gently wrapped it, her side kick, soldered the ends and the p'ups were thrown into pot of wax for shielding.  It is worth the trip to go to the Corona factory guys 8)

I have the AZ in the neck of my frankenstrat coupled with a TZ in the question is---is there a specific sweet spot for the AZ to utilize just like the TZ?  Right now I have it running flush with the mounting ring.  If I raise it a couple of mm up, it becomes BOOMY.  If I lower it below the mounting ring by a mm, it seems to be weak kinda, unless Im getting older and more tone deaf.

what would be a good bridge bucker to go with a HFH in my Les Paul?  I play classic rock, top 40 rock, 80's genre rock, etc......I have a Super Distortion and a Super 3 but I dont think that the p'ups would compliment the HFH very well
