I have gone more than a decade in a state of acceptance that I have fallen out of grace with HB pickups. In my younger days of full time, then half time gigging, I always had guitars with HBs, but never really was happy with the muddy tone I seemed to get. I bought a new PRS in '86 and mostly used the sweet switch to get that out of phase/coil tapped tone. I had a '72 ES335 with a coil tap switch added on the neck pickup. Even in recent years I have installed Lollar Imperials and, while gret pickups, still not to my liking. Though I never had a single coil guitar, I can see in retrospect how I was trying my best to get close to that sound with my HBs. Some years ago I made an almost complete switch to P90s, teles, and those wonderful Lollar mini HBs. I gave up my hunt for a "good" full size HB. The title of the thread suggests I might have found the HB I have been looking for. I came across a mint AS200 and the Super 58s in it are like no HB I have ever played. They are super articulate and like a cross between a P90 and an HB. None of that "sound muddy" kind of thing I just could not get away from with so many other full HBs. This Super 58s may convert me to accepting there is, after all these years, an HB out there for me. Oh, the AS200 is quite the sweet guitar, as well.
