so basically theres no going wrong with any of them. sounds like i'm picking from supermodels, your not going to be unhappy no matter who you pick! when it comes to the sound clips, i agree and disagree. Used with a large grain of salt they can help moderately. and in the case of near direct comparisons (amp settings unchanged and such) can at least demonstrate where there isnt huge differences, while it cant tell you EXACTLY what said pickup will sound like, it can get you in the tonal ballpark (albeit, an extra large ballpark). they also can make someone ask questions, like me. if i hadn't listened to sound bytes, i probably would not be here asking questions at all. Would i buy a pickup strictly on its sound byte? NO WAY! will i use every available resource to point in the right direction? Yep. besidesssss, i havent got anything better to do i cant rout my pickup channels until i have said pup's at least decided on 100%. anyone know if bill posts dimensions for his pickups anywhere? i know they fit a strat rout, but i'd rather have the dimensions in hand if possible. also, is the little black box q filter just the inuctor, or the full lcr circuit inside? the site says its a LCR circuit, but is it referring to the whole circuit, or just the box?
