    you mean a short scale neck?? id say no because i find buckers on a short scale to be muddy as all hell.

    I'm a FAN - especially w/a modified orig 3 saddle bridge !!

    I've found that brighter buckers work better - and NO on the short scale IMHO

    Interesting! i was thinking of just going with a strat bridge or even a recessed TOM. But that is pretty cool.

    I hear ya on the brighter bucker. I'll be avoiding the PAF sound for sure. Maybe a Duncan Custom Custom.....do they still make that one?

    Thanks guys!

    Duncan still makes the custom custom. No worries there.

    ya know what I really like in these ?

    late 60s / early 70s T-Tops !!

    I've bought two recently on Ebay - each were less than $80. They also sound REALLY good in the NECK position of a tele
