    I am curious to see how these compare to the other WCR's. If anybody has these could you please give us a little review?

    Thanks!

    I've got the BetSet in my LP Goldtop. Currently it's my favorite guitar to play out. The neck is a Crossroads model, the bridge is an underwound (like 7.4K) PAF type (perhaps calling it an underwound Crossroads bridge is the best description).

    While it may not have been designed for it, the Betset does a killer Angus Young/AC DC vibe in addition to the AB/Dickey thing.

    As usual, put good 500k pots & decent caps in the guitar, wire it up 50's style and you'll be all set...or Betset...

    :D

    You should hear them through a Major Crunch.

    Seavall got it right. The Moore-Green is a little more closer to the DarkBurst set numbers-wise. Unfortunately, I heard both of them through a Major Crunch, and am now doomed to have to get rid of all my other amps (both of them) and get an MC...:Devil

    TR, the Major Crunch is an amp I make. Quad 6V6, single ended Class A. Dual channel, plus a tone stack bypass on one channel we call the "NUKE" mode. The Nuke provides a 25-35% gain and volume boost for a nice thick OD.

    No OD pedal is needed, just kick in the Nuke, and the blast is instantaneous. Does a really cool clean when you roll off your guitar volume, too. Basically, a cross of a Champ on steroids, a Plexi (TMB channel) and a plexi in higher gain mode (NUKE).

    Info here: http://www.southbayampworks.com/amps.html

    Getting together with LeonC soon to do sound clips with WCR pickups, too. Email me offline, or call me if you need some info, or clarification the info.

    how do you wire it 50's style? Is it like the standard LP wiring or is it different?
