    Sound sample comparing the humbucker mode

    This is a sound sample to demo the humbuckers.

    First is the 2 neck ceramic single coils in series to make a humbucker- very soft & bluesy.

    Second phrase is the 2 bridge single coils with the Alnico 8 - BarnPuppies with quite some bridge bite.

    The third phrase is the neck and bridge humbucker parallel. I get this selection with the 2nd push button (Gilmour switch) where I can turn on the neck pup.

    Hey Helmut,
    The guitar is sounding great! I like the demo tracks you have been recording.

    This is an amazing build. I admire your skills.

    Unfortunately, so much of what you guys talk about seems to be a bit over my head (maybe that's because I'm really a bass player??) but in reading threads like this I'm learning.

    Thanks for sharing the build.

    The guitar is a beauty and the pups sounds very good, well done Sir.

    Thanks folks for the nice words - all pup kudos for middle and bridge go to Rob!. When I get to it, I will make some sound sample of the Barnpuppies with the coil taps at vintage spec. thanks
