They are bad ass sounding single coils that are silent. If you're looking into getting some new SCs...I'd recommend these.

Sounds a lot thicker than the Area 67s. Nice playing by the way.

i use DiMarzio 54 pro and Heavy Blues 2 in my Malmsteen Strat as i hate HS3.

funny how PG has gone all SC, in racer x he was the 'twangy one'(and just after) then HB sound for years, now SC pu..
maybe he is so deaf its the only way to hear treble??

no offence Paul

Yes. I also have it installed in the middle. It works great for those two positions. Real beefy and fat strat tone, and indeed real "thick" sounding. Might be a bit too much heavy on the low end for some, but for those who like that kick in the chest the Area 61s are great. They respond real well to fast picking as well, because of that fatness. I got a Chopper in the bridge for more hard rocking tones/higher gain solos a la Richie Kotzen. By the way, these pickups are installed in a Squire Fender. 99$ guitars ftw :D


What are the HS3s? Are they equivalent to any Area single coils?

I would imagine Paul now prefers single coils because they have a much higher dynamic range and sensitivity, and works better with his much matured playing style. He always did go for those twangy tones though early on too...guess he's always been a SC guy trapped with HB guitars.

Hs3 is the new code name for former YJM single I believe.

Yeah, that strat is sounding amazing with those pickups now. I'd buy one but I think I prefer a Tele more, and unfortunately those are not so good in the lower price range :P

Oooh that's right. I forgot they changed the name of those pickups. I went through a ton of pickup changes with that purple squire of mine, and finally went back to a SSS configuration after years of HSH. Figured I needed a real strat. I've had that guitar for 10 years now and played it to death too. For whatever reason it drastically changed in tone over the years...for the better of course.

I definitely love teles a lot. I'd love to own a thinline tele. I'm a sucker for guitars with holes/chambered bodies. I love the airy quality it lends to the tone. Allen Hinds once offered to sell his 70's blue thinline to me...at like 5,000$. LOL.
