    a Super-2 question and a Kyuss handle- of course!
    Just kidding. Josh is the man. Sorry to distract from the point of the OP.

    DO NOT! I REPEAT...DO NOT PUT ANOTHER SUPER 2 IN THE BRIDGE. I know of someone who did this, and it absolutely ruined the guitar's sound. It's just not designed to work there. SD, sure, no problem at all.

    I had a Super-2 from the late '70s in the neck position of my '82 Les Paul for years. The last bridge pickup with it was with was a Super-3.

    I'm getting ready to take it out of retirement and put the old Super-2 in the neck position of a Fat Tele build. Still have to do the neck route:

    I ordered a stacked Duncan Custom Shop "Pearly Gates" Esquire pickup for the bridge position. That'll take a few weeks.

    That's my Glendale CRS bridgeplate and saddles that I got for a second Esquire build. But I need a Fat Tele a little more than a 2nd Esquire.

    This old Super-2 is a really nice pickup. I assume they're still pretty decent. Nice cutting sound. I imagine they'd be a good matchup for most high power bridge pickups.
