i tryed a fender yesterday and really liked it, is the awsome rythm sound from it from the pickups or the geetah? if so i have a les paul wit the standard double coil pickups, would ther be a way make one pickup double and one single like the rythm pickup single and treble a double? then they could combine in the middle switch and mke the awsome fender treble tone? tht would be sick? can i do tht or am i fanticizing?

Hey, you can put a single coil with the size of a humbucker,change the pickups or heck if the ones that the guitar have that can be combined with coil spliting with push-pull pots. With this configuration you can get a sound very similar to a single coil with a humbucker.

What you got is a 'humbucker' guitar there mate, normally you can get push-pull knobs that split your humbuckers so they can become 'virtual' single-coil pick-ups.

But if you really want the sound it is best to get a Stratocaster and if you can get the Fender, I use a Squire it's not bad but I've played alot where they don't even touch the Fender quaility...

Coil tapping seems to be the way to go. You can have your guitar set-up that you can pull your tone or volume knobs and it will turn off half of the humbucker so you get a single coil sound.

Or if you choose to get a new guitar, you could get a Fender like the Lonestar Strat which has a 'bucker in the bridge all ready, and has single coils in the neck and middle positions.

when i get enough money and approval to get a new geetah it would be a fender and it would be in about a year. i should prob hold off on it for i will be dissapointed with it when i get the new geetah.
