    Was thinking about putting a SD Jerry Donahue in the bridge of a ClassicVibe BSB. Would a SD Seth Lover pair well in the neck? What pots & caps should I use to balance everything?

    Yes it works well. I have an Antiquity neck with the JD in bridge. For this guitar 500k pots work better but it sounded fine with 250k as well.

    I would go with 500K pots. The Seth Lover is two-wire, which means that you won't have the option of single or parallel switching should you ever decide you would like it.

    For a "vintage" style bucker from SD with a 4 wire conductor.

    Look at the Alnico II Pro.

    SD will make you a 4 wire seth lover if thats what you want (i would) you have to order it from them that way. Get short legs as well
