    Dave (noodles) & Mike (eaeolean) are Geniuses!!

    So I've been bothering these two guys for who knows how long regarding tone, settings, tweaks etc for SD style pickups. As you know I've got a Jazz neck and a BKP Holy Diver (JB7 variant) but being new to these types of pickups ie: very testy and sensitive pups - I couldnt get the right tone/sweet spot for them.

    Anyways yesterday after talking to Dave, the idea came up to switch the jazz pup around and see how it works. Well guess what - it sounds so very very smooth and fluid exactly how Dave had described it to me before. This pup is so nice now - I think this has to be the best sound neck passive pup out there that I've tried.

    Here is a clip of the Jazz - all tweaks/setup suggested by Dave+Mike. Not the best clip as I'm very rusty due to school.

    I'm so happy - now if only I can get this bridge pup situation sorted out...

    That's awesome.

    I didn't notice the title but just as I was about to say "Yeah, it's got a really Satch-esque feel to it" you started into the main melody of "Cryin'"........and then I noticed the clip title

    Glad I could help. Sounds like you got it dialed in nice, too.

    Is usefulness proportional to size?

    Guess that's why no one wants to hire me

    What did you do with the pickup exactly, Mesh?
    Too much focus leads to tunnel vision
    Too much faith leads to religion
    Too much knowledge leads to confusion
    Too many guitar lessons lead to jazz-fusion
