    Swapping Out for DiMarzio Pickups on strat?

    Anyone else make this switch? I swapped out all 3, I think it sounds killer! Here's the sound of me playing it through a Mesa Boogie DC-5: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s4lMMAwa0oY

    I have very minimal processing added to it: just some reverb, and maybe an exciter on a parallel track.

    On a side note, this solo by Gilmour is honestly incredible. It's one of my all time favorites, just takes you on a journey.



    As far as pickups, I got 2: DiMarzio DP419 Area '67 Hums and 1 DiMarzio DP218 Super Distortion S Strat Hum. I initially made the switch because I wanted to be able to play heavier styles, but it also sounds awesome for lighter stuff.

    I'm a really big fan of the Super Distortion, particularly in a Strat.
    I do admit wasn't quite as impressed with the S version though.
    Still, I'm sure it's a big improvement for you.
    Enjoy.

    OK.

    Time to educate you right handed players:

    1). Yes, Dan, we have heard from a million people, "Your guitar is backwards"--it's funny the first time. After we've heard it a few times, we get polite and make a "ha" sound for you all.

    2.) Yeah, we could have learned to play right handed. But you know what? Why don't you learn to wipe your butt with the other hand. Get used to that and then talk to me.

    3). Sure we complain about the dearth of left-handed models. We know companies have to make a profit and lefty guitars cause them more trouble than not with the machinery and supply and demand. BUT it is very hard to see you all with the millions of choices you have. Play right handed then? READ #2 again

    4.) I am being lighthearted here. Love to all my righty brothers and sisters whose guitars are being played BACKWARDS from our lefty point of view.
