Another magical Strat combo found
« on: November 18, 2020, 05:03:34 PM »
On a whim I installed a 63 Veneer neck pickup into my Strat loaded with 59/s.  INCREDIBLE!  The slightly smokier 63 brings out the best in this particular guitar, while mating extremely well with the middle.  The quack is even more pronounced and vibrant.  Love the chewiness of the 63 neck, but preferred the 59's in the other positions.  Pure Strat magic!

One of the best tones is the strat neck position. For cleans sure, but also for a lot of overdriven stuff. I would like to try the Veneer Board, yet I am happy with what I have now. I don't have another strat to customize and in these covid times it's useless to buy extra gear. Unless one is recording.
