Separate names with a comma.
Function over form for me, always.
The P-Rails is the closest I've heard to a real P90, with a bunch of bonus sounds thrown in.
Yes! I built a Warmoth Strat, and wrote a blog about the process.
I just got a T59/v in red. It is a remarkable instrument with stock Antiquities.
The Quarter Pound is a great sounding bridge pickup that you don't hear enough about.
This all depends on what you are hoping for. Is the EQ of your pickup driving you crazy? Does the guitar have a tonal problem you have to correct?...
Well, some QPs can actually be tapped, and since they are single coils, they can't be split, so this is one instance that 'tap' is correct. I am...
The Seth Lover is my favorite neck pickup in any guitar.
The SSL-6 is another good pickup that can match with a humbucker, but still has single coil sounds.
Well, I can say it just about nails the sound of a Les Paul pickup in a Tele.
Another +1 on the 805. The active 3 band EQ controls add the 'missing' bass and can tame the mids. An overdrive with no mid hump at all and equal...
The YJM Speed pots are remarkable. I use them for volume as well as tone. I don't like pots that are too hard to turn- I use them too much.
Well it does, but it has a 3 band active EQ so you can tame it if you want. The Forza is the model that has no mid hump to speak of, and still has...
The Duncan STK-S4 isn't just my favorite noiseless set, it is my favorite Strat set, period.
Well, a hotter single coil doesn't sound like a humbucker, tone-wise, so some re EQing might still have to happen. Hot Tele pickups like a Quarter...
In a darker guitar, P-Rails benefit from the parallel setting. Also, the P-90 setting tends to sound great, too.
I agree, but you sort of add the bark of a P90 with the twang.
The Hot Tele pickup would be the right one. I don't think it is too hot when compared to a neck pickup like that.
I say just get a 2 humbucker Tele and you don't have to compromise for a great heavier rock sound.
But if it seems you can't get one, a Little 59...
The Gilly is fairly new, so it hasn't been out there for very long.
Antiquities are not wax potted, and are supposed to be slightly microphonic. This is the way old pickups were made, and it helps with the...
You can also get a custom-made pickup from the Duncan Custom Shop- or ask them to rewind the pickup you have, which won't cost nearly as much.
This would be my choice. You can get a Pearly Gates for Tele, which sounds less Tele-like and well, more Pearly Gates like.
2 for me, although I love the neck/middle combo of a Strat. I don't love it enough to have it on every guitar, though.
