I go through this about once a month, and I know there have been many discussions about this. I want a Strat sounding rhythm pup..think Hendrix "Wind Cries Mary"...mot distorted, but full, clear, tight bass and glassy top end. I have Duncan STR3(loud but undefined), tried a Dimarzio Twang King(weak output, narrow tonal bandwidth). I like the sound of the Twisted Tele as heard on the YouTube video by the Fender Custom Shop('52 Custom Tele), but haven't heard it live. I spoke to a guy at Rio Grande that told me their Halfbreed was better than their Vintage Tallboy for what I wanted. I got the feeling he was trying to push Halfbreed pickups, not help me out. Experiences and recommendations?
