So I have had a set of Bill's excellent noiseless PU's in for a while but ordered up a set of microcoils for my thinline to see how they sound. I know that the differences are not big but still noticing a difference. They are both excellent for hum reduction is something I noticed right away. So the microcils seem in my setup to have less diference from the neck to bridge. The noisless did produce a more distinct sound from neck to bridge in my setup. I was going to swap back the neck and have a noiseless neck and microcoil bridge but figured I would let the microcoils percolate for a while to see how my ears adjusted to them adding some distance from the familiarity factor. I thank the forum members for putting me onto Bills PU's to start with, Derek's and others enthusiasm had to be explored and I am glad I did. Cheers Ron.
