    Looking for the Ultimate Bridge PUP for my Esquire.

    I'd like more Bottom End but keep the same of everything else that my Vintage Style Pickup has.

    I use a Duncan AlnicoIIPro, but a Broadcaster might do you better if you want more bottom.

    Seymour Duncan Broadcaster should do it. I used one in a "parts Esq." for 15 years. - Jim

    I have an Allparts Vintage something or other in it now. It sounds great. I'd like the same high end but with more bottom. Will the Broadcaster give me that? I'm not looking for anything really hot just more bottom.

    I tried out a Fender Nocaster pickup once and it had a pronounced top end, but also a huge low end. Reminded me of Roy Buchanan's sound, in fact. I have no direct experience, but someone on the FDP said that the Nocaster and Duncan Broadcaster are fairly similar.
    Discussing the difference between the Broadcaster and the AlnicoIIPro I mentioned above (which has a tighter, more compressed tonality) the same person said that it was like the difference between Pamela Anderson and Sandra Bullock.

    The GFS Repro '62 bridge PU I installed on my White Blonde has some nice bottom.

    I like fat guitars and I was surprised by this one..

    My partscaster has a Duncan Broadcaster. I'm very impressed with its tonal range. Oh, it spanks, as they say.
