it seems I can dial in the tones I like much better with single coils. I don't get as frustrated trying to dial in amps with single coils. I love the way they sound clean, overdriven and everywhere in between. I love my Grosh RC and have fierce GAS for a Tele. I don't want to drop new money on a guitar right now, so I may have to do the unthinkable and sell my R7. What a quandry!
