I don't know if it's just me, but I really struggle to find dirty tones on my Squier VM '70s strat. It has the Duncan designed PUs that are very articulate and clear sounding. Perfect with clean tones and modulation effects, especially delay and reverb. But even though it might sound good with some dirt, it never sounds as good as my T style guitar, not even close! I've tried with different OD pedals, fuzz, "crunch" distortion, neck pu, middle pu, etc. I'm never truly satisfied with the dirty tones, or at least not as much as I am with the clean tones. My "tele" on the other hand is great with both. Am I missing something, or is the guitar just inherently better for clean tones? What's your opinion ? Please share advice if you have any.
