i have a pretty standard american strat with maple neck and all that, and like other in this thread, i'm loving the single coil wolf tone.
As you said, it is wired like a traditional strat, but my tone seems... thin... so to say compared to the wolf's. i hear i should put a solid tailpiece on to get the strings going right into the body, and i was also thinking of sticking some super II's on the middle and bridge.
what else could i do to "thicken" up my tone, so to say
try this bridge for a strat replacement.

if you like the single coil wolf tone, keep the single coils but add a modded alembic stratoblaster. there are 2 ways to mod it. i believe jerry used one of the 2 ways in wolf. it adds beef, clarity and and an alway's buffered output. before the volume knob and the blaster always see's the full output of the pickups. after the guitars volume and the volume controls what the blaster see's.
if your handy with the soldering iron, you could make one fairly cheap. here is a perfboard version i have used.
