Pickups for Yngwie Sound


#1

I’m looking for pickups to get that 80s Yngwie sound. They are going in a Squier Vintage Modified 70s Strat.
Dimarzio HS-3 in all positions?
Or
Dimarzio HS-3 in Bridge and HS-4 in Neck and Middle?

IIRC Yngwie used a HS-3, but wired up as a singlecoil, with the second dummy coil split.

If you’re game to try something else, at least through a Mark-V, I’ve been surprised that Suhr ML Standards in an alder strat with a maple neck have a sort of Yngwie-like vibe to them on fast picked passages. They’re spectacular sounding pickups, too.
