The DiMarzio High Power Strat Replacement Pickguard looks to completely change the sound of your strat without the need for any tricky soldering. The fitting of this pickguard is easy as pie and you just need some basic tools including screwdriver, wire stripper and a wirecutter and that is it no solder needed. This particular version looks to take your strat into the world of heavy humbucker like sounds but in a smaller more traditional package. Loaded up with a Fast Track 2 in the bridge, Fast Track 1 in the middle position and a Pro Track in the neck you get an incredible range of versatility that cover a wide range of humbucker like tones.
Fast Track 2
The Fast track 2 in the bridge is a high output punchy pickup with a beautiful midrange that really brings out the small nuances of your playing. This is the highest output single coil sized pickup DiMarzio make for the bridge position so you know it can handle anything you will throw at it including high gain metal riffage.
Fast Track 1
The Fast Track 1 in the middle position offers up a brighter sound than either the Fast Track 2 or the Pro Track but it still offers a fair amount of punch. With the Fast Track 1 DiMarzio have made a pickup that mixes together the tone and response of a single coil with the output of a slightly hot humbucker. Whenever you need a quick clean passage switch to this pickup for instant bright high end and definition.
Not as hot as the Fast Track 2 the Pro Track pickup has a warm and deep sound that closely resembles vintage PAF style pickups and makes a perfect choice as a neck pickup when used in combination with the rest of this set. From blues to saturated rock solos this pickup sounds great no matter your style.
Here's what DiMarzio say about the High Power Strat Replacement Pick Guard
Drop this pre-wired pickguard into a guitar with an 11-hole standard pickguard for a heavyweight sound that covers a lot of musical territory. The pickguard features a Pro Track neck / Fast Track 1 middle / Fast Track 2 bridge pickup configuration. The Pro Track is warm and friendly, with a classic neck humbucker sound. The Fast Track 1 is bright and clean, with enough power to keep up with the neck and bridge positions . The Fast Track 2 is our heaviest-sounding Strat-size humbucker, with a huge mid-range and bass punch. Need we say more
