    Where do they fit, sonically? I'm assuming maybe between a Tele bridge and a Strat single coil?

    I've only ever seen them mounted in the neck position. Can they be wound to closely mimic P-90 type growl?

    I always thought Lennon's JR with the CC in the neck was an interesting guitar, but only seemed to be used for rhythm, far as I've heard.

    Thank you.

    I've got the Lollar CC set in my Relic Tele. I think they fall in the P-90 camp. I have a Tele with BK P-90's and others with single coils, so yeah, closer to the P-90 camp.

    Found a pic of it:

    I've got these, received em a few weeks back, and I've only heard the staples one, and in an online clip at that.
    I've been way too busy working on learning material for my new band to get them into anything, but I'm eager to hear them

    I've got the TK Smith CC in the neck position of my tele. Similar territory as a P90 but sounds more "hi-fi" to my ears. BIG sound. Love them.
