You guys wanna see some weird s***? Here’s my cobain a few years ago... with wide range humbuckers. I routed it, looking for a guitar with these pickups before I got my ‘75 tele deluxe. Always loved the sound of wide ranges. The pickups were not bad! They were fairly accurate to the originals, obviously not exactly the same. So I routed it, wired it up. It LOOKED super weird, like something out of sonic youth.. which isn’t a bad thing in my eyes. Here’s the issue: it sounded like total crap. The reason? I completely blame it on those wolf tones and the scale length. Wide ranges didn’t not agree with short scale.. it was much MUCH too wimpy of a sound. And with gain? Forget it. It sounded almost like you were jumping your distortion channel and your clean channel and the clean channel was louder. Bleh. So anyway, yes, I did put it back to the way it was and I don’t regret it one bit. Sounds great!
