I aways enjoy your videos (subscribed). That tone is great and I'll be getting it once I get another HD500 (which should be this afternoon).
What do you use to listen to the tones real-time? I see you said you recorded straight into the computer, but did/do you have some monitor speakers connected too?

Great sound. I to have a Fender squire that plays great and am thinking of modifying it. How are the pickups as far as being noisey. Any 60 cycle hum or noise around lighting, electronics, etc?

Thanks. Pickups are great, but they are regular single coils, meaning you get hum more than with humbuckers. No way around that unless you go with the SSC from Suhr or use some "hybrid" single coil, which aren't quite the same. These pickups are fantastic for me, who like old school, low output single coils.
