Hot rod your Strat or Tele!

Fast Track 1

Most important is the sound. The Fast Track 1(TM) has the same open top- end as a single-coil with a tighter- more focussed bass response. Picking dynamics are intact too: Fast Track(TM)s speak with the sensitivity of your favorite single-coil, only about twice as loud.
If you use a hot bridge humbucker, try a Fast Track 1(TM) in the middle and neck positions. The Fast Track 1's enhanced output will better match the bucker's volume for smoother transition from one pickup position to another. You can put a whole set of Fast Track 1(TM) pickups in a Strat style guitar for louder, tougher tone. Different combinations of Fast Track1TM, Chopper(TM), and Fast Track 2(TM), pickups can add guts and drive to any 3x single-coil guitar. The DP381 is the Tele bridge version.Recommended For:
All basic Strat-type replacement situations. The dual radiused blade polepieces will handle all string-spacing requirements, and the magnetic field creates a very even string-to-string balance.
For any situation where single-coil sound with higher power and hum-cancellation is required. Can be used in any position in a standard Strat setup. Also combines with bridge humbuckers such as PAF, PAF Pro, Fred, Air Classic(TM), Air Zone(TM), Norton, and Tone Zone.

    Comments about DiMarzio DP181 Fast Track 1 Pickup:

    This pickup has all: power, tone, clarity. I put it on the neck and on the middle position while installing a FRED F spaced humbucker in the bridge. This combination is very good and balanced. I obtain a lot of overtones in any switch position. It has the power of an humbucker while retaining the clear sound of a single coil.
