Hi all- I've been working on a partscaster tele with a HB in the neck and I've been looking for a suitable partner for the bridge pickup. After reading tons of horror stories about mating HB's and Single-coils, I decided I'd check out some kind of stacked single-coil sized pup. I did some reading and this pickup got pretty decent marks. I grabbed one from GC to check it out and got it installed late last night. I'm underwhelmed. It sounds sort of lifeless to my ears and a little sterile - sort of 2 dimensional, like it was imitating what a good pickup should sound like. The neck HB is a 70's Gibson HB, probably a Tim-bucker. It sounds big and round, warm and articulate and also killer through an amp clean. The Little 59 had to have some grit to sound decent at all. I used 500k pots in the guitar and a .047 ceramic disc cap and the guitar's using a 3-way switch. The Gibson HB has 2 wires total, so I can't split it. Listening to the Duncan, I don't think it'll be worth the effort to setup coil splitting... FYI, I tried the Parts-tele through my Maz 18 2x10, Hayseed 30, Gibson Falcon and my Carr Mercury, just to make sure it wasn't completely amp dependent. Is anyone loving this pickup? Is there anything config-wise I could try to get a better sound out of it or am I SOL? Any thoughts appreciated.
