Holy fucking hell.
I mean, I knew the neck and middle were good, but...
1) Now they're through proper 250k volume and tone pots, darkening and smoothing them a hair, and
2) now they have an awesome, awesome, awesome bridge singlecoil to compliment them.
Thick, powerful, and clear - it's pretty much everything I've ever wanted in a Strat. Kind of in the new gear euphoria phase right now so we'll see how they hold up, but goddamn. I like these. I'm about to grab a beer with two friends up the street, but after that I'll be getting my blues on for the rest of the night.
