Re: Perhaps I stated it incorrectly...
Mark,  
 
 
 
Remember though that I boosted the Strat to  
 
levels above the standard humbucker level.  
 
Yes, I know the frequency distribution is  
 
different on singles, but on every other amp  
 
I have ever played, clean boosting a Strat  
 
resulted in breakup levels similar to humbuckers,  
 
but obviously with a single coil tone. Not only  
 
that, but I communicated with folks who claimed  
 
their Strats behaved like the Chapin MP3s.  
 
In fact, some of them said it was the only  
 
style guitar/pickup that allowed them to get  
 
*any* clean tone at all. So, based on all  
 
the input I received, I was actually a little  
 
concerned that I wouldn't have *enough* clean  
 
headroom.  
 
 
 
Oh well, descriptions of tone are pretty  
 
subjective. It always comes down to hearing  
 
and deciding for yourself. Thanks for the  
 
input.  
 
 
 
Dave
