Hey! So I play both quite a bit. I have to say that I cannot put my finger on why I tend to prefer single coils [Strat&P-90] better. HB's do sound great, but there tends to be this thin quality at the top end that I do not care for. Maybe I just need better pickups for my guitar. I have a handbuilt Zemaitis copy that I love when I hear the acoustic tone. When plugged in, there seems to be this strident high end that simply seems to not allow much of the body and depth to come through. So: Which do you find to be best for you and why? For a resonant and chimey mahogany guitar that is 25.5 scale and 24 frets what kind of HB would you recommend? Thanks! M.E.
