I just purchased a used MIM fender strat with a rosewood fretboard from e-bay for $240. To my surprise, somebody had already performed a pickup modification and replaced the stock neck pickup with a DiMarzio YJM. The pickup is now called the HS-4, as Yngwie is no longer affiliated with DiMarzio. Anyhow, I play through a Tech-21 Sansamp GT-2 straight into the mixing console at our church. The GT-2 is an amplifier simulator, and to my ears it sounds pretty good. Now for the pickup itself. I was actually surprised by the low output from this pickup, but the tone was incredible. Even with a moderate to heavy amount of distortion you could hear every note cleanly. No 60Hz hum. Now that I think about it, that's Yngwie's approach - start with a good clean pickup that's not too hot, then overdrive it at the amp, not at the guitar. The result is a pickup that articulates your picking well, and sounds great.
