I'm not so sure, cause that's almost an identical pickup to my El Black Crow its about 300 turns diff.. is all - I'm pretty sure its hotter and wire 42'
its the higher ohm 42 that's the culprit in this case, because the way hes running the rig if he was to use wire 42 - he'd need like a 6k - just to get thru that amp, but at 6k he would not have the power of a 43 Broadcaster type wind. his only hope is to stay with the 43 and the regular neck and get them to open up with air and organics, via the hand winding.. the overwound darker pickups are not translating thru his amp at all.. regardless of their build and hand wound pattern.
