My Strat is pimped with humcancling Dimarzio SCs. I wanted to have Eric Johnson like tone on the neck and VH at the bridge. I chose Dimarzio HS2 (neck) and Tonezone SC for that. Dimarzio then recommended the Area 61 for the middle. This should be my all purpose Strat. While it works great, I feel I sacrifice a bit too much on both sides, SC and HB. So I bought Tonerider true SC for the Strat and a Rocksong PU set for my Ibanez. Since I only own 2 electrics... they now feed different purposes. But what I can say: That Area range from Dimarzio is great. Btw, as I write this I remeber the pus are lying around. So, if someone is interested, let me know.
