1 Toxophilite 2 weeks ago I've l aways love the jangly acoustic sound of a strat. I mean clean, not being SRV or Jimmy Hendrix, but perfectly clean. My friend had an older Jazzmaster that he used to get some lovely recorded sounds out of . Clean as well. However I've always been an archtop guy as they look and feel like a guitar to me. I've always imagined an archtop with strat or jazzmaster pickups. I guess that's why I like hilotrons and to some extant DeArmands too.I was going to put a set of one or the other on my Yamaha AE1200S which has humbucker routs already. i can make any sort of adapters necessary and there is a lot of room under teh strings as the bridge is about 1 inch high.Anybody done anything like this?I'd also be interested on comparisons between jazz master and strat pickups sonically (I know how they're constructed differently)Also can you adjust the pole pieces of Jazzmaster pickups?? (specifically the new fender pure vintage 65 ones) by pushing them in and out. I know you can do this with start pickups that have the poles/magnets each in their own little sheath but not ones that have the actual windings touching the poles.
