What WCR Pickups would you put on a Driskill?

    I've been reading a lot about the WCR Pickups and so far I haven't seen comments from anyone with them on a Driskill.

    The Goodwoods for the bridge and the Darkburst or a Crossroads for the neck would most likely be the set that I get for my LP Classic. Being the Driskill will have a 5-way switch for single coil from a Humbucker, plus the difference in the guitars, I wanted to get some opinions.
    Thanks,

    I think that sounds like a good combo. Driskills can be bright guitars due to the the thick maple top and neck construction (carbon fiber/stainless steel frets). You'd probably want a thick sounding humbucker for the bridge and something smooth for the neck (which I think that combo could do in spades). Darkburst would be a great neck pickup as well.

    I got a darkburst/crossroads combo for mine. Alas, it'll be a while before I can give you a tone report.

    This is for one that Joe has yet to build or for one that you already have?

    How long ago did you order yours?

    I'm currently at 18 months. I must admit the time has flown by.

    All the best,

    Yossi

    The problem with that pickup is if you go with the kryptonite inlays, yer screwed!

    At least you can use the guitfiddle as a fridge mag. Not recommended for anyone with a steel plate in their dome.
