  • Vintage neck/hotter mid/beefy bridge

    Is there a Duncan option for a middle Strat pickup that would be a little hotter than an SSL-1/2, but lower than a 5/6?

    Ideally, I want real singles, non-rw/rp.

    The unaged Texas Hot should do what you want. It's wound to around 10k and has alnico 2 rods.
    Ain't nothin' but a G thang, baby.

      Duncan has that, albeit noiseless: STK-S7

        You can put a Surfer Bridge or a Twangbanger in the middle.

          I don't want to crash the party, but i prefer a lower wound pickup in the middle. They make a much better in-between sound. The bridge resp. the neck better stands out and the middle pup scoops out the mids better. I used 5.6k Fender pickup for that.

            Unlike the majority of people on here, I’m not really into the 2 & 4 positions, and I love using the middle by itself. To further be a weirdo, if 1,3,5 aren’t hum cancelling, I don’t want 2 or 4 to be either.

            A few years ago, I saw Chris Duarte do a clinic, and he said he uses 3 as is main tone, then goes to 1 or 5 for a smoother or more biting tone. Made a lot of sense, and I started doing the same. The other guy I’m taking a note from is Robin Trower. He uses a 50’s neck, 60’s middle, and Texas Special bridge, and the same sort of approach as Duarte.
