Has anyone came up with a combination of DP110 and other single coils that lets the Strat in question still sound like a strat with the "quack and cluck" in positions 2 and 4? this pickup sounds more like a P-90 to my ears and is so much louder than vintage or vintage-voiced Strat pups that it just will not work well with them? I believe this pickup must have been designed to be sandwiched between two humbuckers, what, with the emphasis on so much hi-mid output.

This pup is famous for being used in bridge by David Gilmour when he recorded "The Wall".
Afterwards, he used a custom Seymour Duncan that was finally released for the public as the SSL-5.
It's true both pickups are used in HSH configuration, but they are meant as bridge strat pickups with a dark tone.
