I am looking at hooking up a strat I have until I can muster up the cash to get a custom guitar. My strat body has the big canoe cutout and I dont mind hacking it. I want to be able to get a good Jerry sound at times but more so want a nice clear, thick, and full sound from a humbucker. I like to play clean and also like jazzy and full clean tones. Also like to have heavy bottom end for some stuff. My question is how would a Super 2 or super distortion work for me? I would run s/h/h or h/h/h. Haven't made up my mind yet.
I am just looking to run the pickups with coil taps for now and not going all out on the electronics yet.
I really like the sound of the gibson 57 bucker because it is nice and clear and sounds great when rolling back the volume. Will the super distortion or super 2 get me what I am looking for. I know the gibson is alnico and the tone will be different but really like the biting cleans of the dimarzios.
That being said which dimarzio do I want?
