I'm planning a pup & hardware swap on my ESP. Maple body, maple neck, rosewood board, OFR, H-S-H. I've got a Tone Zone for the bridge, an Air Norton for the neck, and once I pick up some tuners & a single coil for the middle, I'll be in business.
Looking for a recommendation for the middle slot, to be primarily used for cleans. The guitar has a five-way & a coil tap switch, and I do enjoy mixing the middle pup with one or more coils of the neck or bridge.
I'd like to stick to Dimarzios but I don't have much experience with their single-coils. What would you put in between a TZ & AN? Should I go Cruiser? Fast Track 1/2? Air Norton S? Something else?
I know you guys know your shit so any advice is gold to me. Thanks for the venue to ask the question.
My favorite single coil, especially with a TZ & AN combo is the FS-1. It's not hum cancelling, but it's really nice and quiet, and really goes great in the 2 and 4 positions with cleans. Really nice and crystal clear.
I like the Fast Track and Cruiser as well.
