Well right now the St-100 has a E in the bridge and the middle. Then it has a Dimarzio in the neck. The neck is about twice as loud of the bridge or middle. So, using the 3 way switch right now is strange. If I do keep the E PUs I would have to find another one on Ebay or so and install it in the neck or just go all 3 different pickups.


It'll be hard to just find one. Whole sets are far and few between:

leave the st100 as it is....
+1...... Except maybe put the Di Marzio in in the bridge position,that should balance nicely.

I put the Fralin's in it. I like it a lot better now. Not that the E pickups are bad I just like the Fralin's better.
