    Cool Rails is pretty fat sounding with distortion, it's about even with a 59 as far as output goes, but it does retain some of the bite that a single has. All in all, it's a very versatile pickup that in no way sounds shrill at the neck.

    Benjy, what about cool rails?? I've heard it's clean which is outstanding, and what about the dist sound?? full, warm, smooth but powerfull??? ( my ideal fo neck )

    I prefer the vintage style pickups, which means SSL's, APS's, and the Antiquities.

    My favorite strat has SSL's.

    the most vintage tone I get is with my Antiquity strat.

    the one I play mostly right now has APS's, with a Hot bridge. I'd like to try the Twangbanger sometime - I think it might be a better match. As everyone will tell you, the APS's are smooth and fat.

    you can hear clips of these on my site, BTW.

    well not a strat, but I have a sing-sing-hum Ibanez and I may put this in:

    lil 59 neck, cool rails middle, Distortion bridge.

    what do you guys think?

    well, jeremy turned me onto the neck and mid Alinco 2 flats along with a twangbanger in the bridge for that Tele tone when you need it.

    Another favorite is a Cool Rails neck, Vintage Rails mid and Hot Rails bridge. (no one talks about this combo much any longer, but when I joined the board many moons ago, it was the number one noiseless single coil tone combo out there)

    Another great combo is two duckbuckers in the neck and mid with a more tradional small humbucker in the bridge (like a demon or a 59).

    Combos for Strat!!

    Hi guys!
    Gibson (or everything else with 2 humbuckers) players have their cool, well known, versatile combos like JB-Jazz, C5-Jazz and a lot more..
