does anyone find this guitar frustrating to get a fat distortion with a equally good warm tone on a clean setting, without having to have separate setting on each sound so you can make a quick switch during a song. i ended up changing to a standed bridge and no longer use the synth side of the instrument. even then i had to add a eq pedal which i switch on when switched to clean sound. the frustration is in quick changes in a song i got to really be on the ball and sometimes miss my cue.
dont like the single coiled pickup guitars to much noise introduced back though the pickups.
To quiet the single coil noise get a noise gate pedal or a rackmounted Hush.
Single coils by nature aren’t fat, if you really want Fat distortion you could swap in one of Seymour duncan’s mini humbuckers – they fit right in the single slot but sound like a humbuckers.
You might want to look at a rackmounted Pre-amp and them you can set up channels on that to quickly alter you tone ie “clean to distorted” quickly. I have a Rocktron Voodu valve that I like a lot.
Good luck – the guitarist search for his/her perfect tone never ends, but it sure is a fun journey.
Buy a Fender.
