    Any good ideas. Saw some videos but running through too many effects and too many expensive amps. Would like to have neck more Santana than Srv ..maybe oxymoron with single coil neck type.

    I had a H/S/S Behringer guitar with Aspen body and cheap ceramic pickups that were meh and swapped in 2 HB's. Later made a Oak body guitar with Maple neck and put the ceramic "meh" set in it and they sounded great in that oak body. So the pickup swap can be good or bad so good luck on finding what you want.

    I love that set in the oak guitar and I did do a wiring mod later, the 2 singles have a parallel/series toggle. Must admit that they stay on series most of the time and cover a large area magnetically, that may be a reason they sound so great. Neck measures 5.0k and middle is 5.5k, so together around 10.5k and deliver a good range of tones.

    Two mods I do now to any frequent player guitar:
    Tele gets the 4-way switch.
    Strat gets the Dan Armstrong Blender Mod.

    I have pulled HSS loaded pickguards and screwed down SSS loaded pickguards with the DAB on them - just so much more useful and the control is intuitive. Second tone pot becomes a blender from SSS to HSH or anywhere between.
