Brandon -

You inspired me to grab this Strat and play it this weekend.  Fun.  Question for you: when you roll your middle tone control all the way down, does it kill the volume all together (like a volume control)?  My middle tone control is working like that right now, and I don't know if it was always like this or if I did it when I installed the Dimarzio s.  Can you check on your Classic Player 50's strat?  Thanks 

Hey man. Just checked mine, which is all stock configurations. Neither of the tone controls have a noticeable effect on volume. Do you think one of the wires may have gotten crossed? It's definitely a fun guitar to play and I love the soft V neck. I've considered changing over to the dimarzio area 58 and 61 but just don't play electric enough anymore to justify the cost.

Bill Lawrence has a couple sets of "humbucking" single coil pickups that are less $$ than DiMarzio's and sound quite good: I have a set of the S280 pups in one of my Warmoth Strats; Bill says they're his more "hi-fi" sounding pickups. He says his S200 set has more of a vintage Strat eq curve and sound ... you can read his description at his website.

Cool. Thanks. I shielded this guitar in addition to changing the pickups.
So, the tone control capacitor is probably grounding out on my copper shield.
I'll get to it someday.
