...Crossposted, and with no pics!
After coveting a rewind for my Soloist 7 neck pickup since Dave got one for the neck of his KXK Proto-V with the set of Duncan Design rewinds he bought from Mesh, I finally found someone selling some Duncan Design 7 string pickups. (Actually 2 someones - thanks, Chris and Chris!) So, I buy them, and a month and two phone chats with Wolfe later, a box arrives at Dave's house. (Why he sent them there, I have no idea. )
Anyway, the verdict is:
The pickup, which now reads about 9.2K as opposed to the 8.7K of the Jazz that was in there originally, has the bell-like roundness of the Jazz with more clarity, and somehow it's punchier, too. In short, it's an excellent soloing pickup, and mixes awesomely with the Wolfetone JB rewind in the bridge for middle-position clean tones. The man has never failed me.
Glad they worked out!
Maybe Wolfe thinks Dave's tone sucks?
